I am a professional street Punch showman based in London. I am not paid a fee for this work. I rely entirely on a collection taken during the show by my outside- man. I also perform internationally at a wide variety of venues; under contract and busking. I am one of the few showmen in Britain for many years, to have performed Punch on the street for a living, and one of the few professional traditional street puppeteers in the world.
The play is not text based, it consists of comic and tragic episodes; events that happen to Punch on the road. I perform in London to large crowds, many of whom do not speak English and often with a very high level of ambient sound. I do not use amplification. Punch is able to pronounce almost any word and conduct a conversation. He is also a very good singer.
