Videos are provided free to view.

If you want to download one, I can arrange that. Just send me a mail telling me which story you’d like, and your reason for wanting a download.

My thanks to Priscilla Howe, who originally posted the skeleton of the story on the Storytell listserv. Priscilla collected many Nasruddin tales during her stay in Bulgaria. More Nasruddin stories are on the All tales on the website.

The recording was made at the 2013 Brüder-Grimm Märchenfestspeiele.

For more Nasruddin tales, go to All tales on the website and scroll down to Nasruddin.


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.
