rots2

Audio Visual Storytelling using foley, mouth-sounds, comedy and cartoons.

chazinausjanCharlie Williams is scene and heard!

Don’t know much about history? Each vignette is a few minutes long and the audience helps build the ambience. Fun for the whole family!

Commercial parodies of Bose radios and Truck Driving school, Charlie has a background in radio and was inspired by Paul Harvey’s the “Rest of the Story.” Kids may not remember or know PH, but Charlie does a great imitation of him- and also sounds like the gopher from Winnie the Pooh.

Which is the Loudest cloud? What was the first man made invention to break the sound barrier? Lewis and Clark never had a disagreement -or did they?
Don’t google the answer! Watch, laugh and learn.

Did you know… Cats not only keep your feet warm in bed and act as a great doorstop; they also give you a workout lifting them up.

Lesson plan: How to draw, design, develop a concept or gag as dexterity in a laboratory.

Charlie wrote and illustrated a daily cartoon strip, Big Butte Junction for the Daily Times and Star Tribune, in 1995-1998 in Wyoming. It was about life in the rural west.

My current strip is called Funny in the Head and can be found here!

When I was in 5th grade I used to deface magazines and newspapers. (with Mom’s permission of course!) It’s a good way to critique content and the ridiculousness of your realm. It’s not heckling, it’s postulating.

Journals of doodles, people sketches, funny ideas.

Don Martin was my inspiration and I practiced defacing magazine ads and newspaper stories. I was a budding heckler as early as the 2nd grade. A sense of humor is our strongest shield in today’s world.

THIS is the adventure of the Space Scout Succulents. This is an in house field trip assembly for your first and second grades. Students will laugh and learn watching this animated cartoon & science show. Filled with humor, comix and sound effects it teaches about the life cycle of plants as we follow the cacti coming to earth to see if they could survive here, where the grass is greener.

Didja know? Some plants can grow in water only, not just soil & sand, and some grow just using air. We explain that these conditions may be perfect for one type of plant but not another….submerging ivy/pond like plants in water is great for these plants but wouldn’t work with many other types.

We talk about how seeds travel (wind/animals/humans). “It appears to be some sort of Canadian Plant Ambassador!”

Readin’ at the Speed of Sound!

Charlie Williams speaks fluent onomatopoeia and coaches young readers to use a more meaningful form of expression when reading outloud. We will exercise our throats and minds when building this story show. Your voice is an instrument and adds character, action and special effects to your stories. Exercises include: Intensive mimic clinic, imitation projection, shot POITS, word lifts, tongue laps, and most of all ….timing… (when and WHERE to practice being noisy!)

Charlie221

During each show we’ll review several fairy tales & picture books, various onomatopoetry and cacofunnies, using small motor skill doodles each patron can build their own personal library. (state funding not included 🙂

Sound safari tours and vocal expo.

We’ll do a speed reading triathlon. Verb vaulting. Tongue Twisters. Vocal gymnastics and a sound effect slalom.
