Little Howard is the world’s only live interactive animation. He’s won so many awards and fantastic reviews and he’s only just celebrated his sixth birthday (for the 10th year in a row)! He’s also a published author and has done lots of television stuff, like The Royal Variety Performance, The Slammer (CBBC) and Little Howard’s Big Question (BBC1) – yes, he’s even had his own television show!
Yet Little Howard is true to his roots and live theatre is still his first love. But life is tough in showbiz; Little Howard’s big new act keeps going wrong, Roger The Pigeon has spent all their money on cookie cutters, his comedy counterpart Big Howard has been diagnosed with being clinically unfunny and there’s a slug in the backstage toilet. And it’s about to get worse: a sinister figure arrives and Big Howard and Little Howard have to put on the best show of their lives to keep themselves out of jail!
Following the success of their TV show Little Howard’s Big Question (CBBC), real human Big Howard and animated six-year-old Little Howard are bringing their unique family comedy show to Greenbelt.
With interactive stand-up, live animation on stage and lots of jokes and songs this really is a show that all the family can enjoy.
Big and Little Howard have toured their hilarious hi-tech shows nationally and internationally, appeared on loads of telly and written books: Little Howard’s Unpleasant Lullaby and Little Howard’s Big Book (Harper Collins). Howard has also written for Horrible Histories, Fit (CBBC) and Gigglebiz (Cbeebies).
Howard Read is 38 years old and married with two children. He is a highly acclaimed stand-up comedian for adults who decided to create a show that would entertain parents as well as children. His solo TV appearances include The World Stands Up (Paramount Comedy Channel) and 28 Acts in 28 Minutes (BBC Three).
