A great tale – with a great punchline!
I have heard several versions of this popular story. And of course, over the years my own telling has gradually evolved.
So enjoy the tale, and see how your own version grows into one which suits you.
The recording was made in 2018 at the TheaterInsel, Rosenheim.
The video clips here are all amateur quality, shot in various theatres.
Their intention is just to show the range of my storytelling and give a flavour of a live performance.
