REVIEWS

“He told an original story to approximately 200 students who didn’t move for one hour. ‘Can we invite him back again?’ they said. I guess you can never get enough of Joshua Kane. He’s a natural!”

Asst. Principal, All Saints Catholic School

“Joshua Kane has revived the great tradition of stage storytelling. He needs no props, just a stream of good stories and his own considerable talent. I was astonished and enthralled and reinvigorated. You will be too.”
