Immortal wizard The Story Beast (alias comedian John Henry Falle) has been wowing folks with his unique brand of Folk Horror, Epic Poetry and Rock and Roll for the last 250,000 years and now he’s bringing his multi-award nominated Comedy to Curious Festival with shows for both kids and adults. Saturday morning he’ll be performing hairy, ever-so-slightly scary tales and songs for kids, helped but mostly hindered by his arch-nemesis, Mandy The Witch Who Lives Under The Sink (Funny Women semi-finalist Mandy Dassa). Then catch him on Saturday evening where he’ll be opening the Comedy Tent (and possibly ripping it a new one) with his bombastic renditions of Beowulf, Ragnarok and Die Hard (as done by Lord Byron). Think Tenacious D with an English Degree.
