Jonathon Acorn is ....... a comic, a fool, an entertainer, an actor,a puppeteer.

He's weird, wacky, bizarre, extremely funny, he's a catalyst, a dogalyst, musical, outrageous, challenging and he is FUN!

Acorn's show varies from traditional pantomime pieces to a Proctologist's lecture on Haemorrhoids; from playing the blues harp to Puppetry.

Walkabout Characters are also on Acorn's list; from the worlds ugliest baby to a classic jester, a roving reporter, a traffic director, Scrooge and no walkabout is complete without the classic pirate!

Variety pieces, festival shows, film work, tv work, voice-overs, street festivals and corporate shows are all part of the life of Jonathon Acorn - the 'Itinerant Entertainer'.(Jonathon likes to think that he is based in Auckland, New Zealand, however, in reality he lives in a suitcase! Which of course, is why he is so small!!)

Welcome to the realm of the Fool where nothing is sacred yet all is acknowledged.

Book him .... He's Good!
