Although I tell my share of stylized Aesop's fables, folk tales, and rowdy urban legends, other storytellers point out that telling those "Tickled Tales" using word play is my strength and my signature. Read my article, "Why Word Play" and listen to "The Chright Before Nistmas" on http://www.storyteller.net/tellers/cesterreicher. Other tales to my credit include the Three Piddle Ligs, Beeping Sleauty, and my own version of Rindercella and the Prandsome Hince. Gransel and Hettle is taking shape nicely.
Benefiting from my 30+ year career as a speech and language pathologist, my intimate knowledge of word structure has made it easy and entertaining for me to "warp the words" of a story using word play strategies like "spoonerisms" and other playful twists.
Look for my 2010 Storytelling Fringe presentation "ALAKAZAM! We Have Talent Too!" -- in Los Angeles.
