Shows for children with Special Needs
There isnít anything complicated about a Professor Paradox show!
Professor Paradox is an experienced childrenís entertainer for a wide range of special needs audiences including learning difficulties, autism, deaf,
disabled, and hearing impaired.
Dealing with the daily frustrations of failing to accomplish what he is trying to do, Professor Paradox demonstrates an almost superhuman inability to do just about anything.
Shows for Deaf and Hearing Impaired Children
The highly visual nature of slapstick comedy makes it ideal for deaf and hearing impaired children because they can see what is going on. You donít need language to understand the joke when someone (the Professor of course) has just been whacked on the bottom by a flying walking stick, and whatever age or ability you are, its funny!
Signing can be incorporated if necessary but the need will be minimal
Children's entertainer for special needs - clowning, slapstick and entertainment for special needs, including deaf, hearing impaired, and disabled children
Curricular Based Educational Shows for Special Needs
The Professor also provides educational shows that have been performed with great success at a
number of special needs and mixed ability schools. Although not
specifically devised for special needs schools, they are highly suitable
due to their humour and visual content. Children may not understand all
of it, but they will have a great time!
Both shows come with follow up material for use in class
Professor Paradox: What you see is what you get - No scary make up, no red nose and not even a wig!
"I have photographs of children's expressions while watching you, they were so happy and lively! So many thanks, we appreciate it so much."
Association for deaf and hearing children
"The best Children's Entertainer we have ever had"
Musgrove Hospital Christmas Party
It is extremely difficult is a school like ours (special school for Social Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties) to find a performer who can appeal to children from the age of nine, right up to young adults of sixteen. Mike proved that he could do that. He delivered a performance full of humour and flexible enough to involve the inevitable hecklers in our audience! Coupled with this was the actual design of the show and the metaphorical lessons to be learned from the scripts. A real and rare triumph at our school.
