Nasruddin’s Cat

Another of the myriad tales about Nasruddin the Hodja

I heard this told at the Ljungby Storytelling Festival by UK storyteller TUUP, who kindly gave me permission to tell it.
This recording was made at one of my favourite gigs, the annual performance at the Brüder Grimm Märchenfestspiele in Hanau, the town of their birth.

For some more tales about the Hodja, go to my All tales on the website and scroll down to Nasruddin. Of course, the internet is full of Nasruddin stories, too.


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.
