“Multi-talented with brilliant observational material” The Stage


Howard Read: Man and Boy

Don’t you just hate it when you work with a six-year-old cartoon boy for fifteen years and you get older, but he doesn’t?

And you know when your six-year-old cartoon boy just can’t get on with your wife?
We’ve all been there right? 

And isn’t it annoying when you start off as an award-winning, edgy fringe performer for adults and then someone commissions you to make three series of a well-paid cult kids TV show which then leads you appear on The Royal Variety Performance and The Morning?  

Well Big Howard and Little Howard are back, and their brand new show for adults addresses burning questions just like these - which everyone can definitely relate to – and more!

Big Howard Little Howard are the worlds first and only Human/Cartoon double-act who have appeared on stage and screen all over the world, been nominated for the Perrier and won a Writers Guild Award.
It’s creator, also called Howard (Howard Read) is also a stand-up who writes for classic  kids TV shows like Horrible Histories and Danger Mouse.

"Genius" Radio Times
