"Ken's stories carry a deeply felt understanding of Caribbean cultural traditions, which he gives us with wit and infectious laughter"   

The Storycrafters - Barry Marshall & Jeri Burns. Philmont, NY.  info@storycrafters.com

 

 

 

STORYTELLING -
All of Ken's stories are informed by his growing up in Guyana, working throughout the Caribbean region, and living in America since 1996.
Ken also tells folk, traditional, and literary tales.  

 

 

POETRY PERFORMANCE - 

Some of the finest oral/aural poetry of the English speaking Caribbean - selected for their "performability", drama, insight, wit, resistance, and for their wide reaching variety. An "edutainment" program. 


STAND UP - 
Ken draws from his observation of everyday and the "everyman" experiences, with the concept that people and living are essentially bizarre. An adult audience preference.
