Charles Williams has been making noise in schools and libraries since he was a kid. He’s worked as a DJ, MC, Cartoonist, Kids Comedian, Children’s Librarian and Dancing Air Balloon Sky-Guy in front of a car dealership.
He published his first book “Flush, An Ode to Toilets” in 2006 and many since then. He is now the vocal foley effect artist for Sound Safari Theater, an audio company that produces children’s albums and educational programs about onomatopoeia.
In other words, he writes, illustrates and performs funny kids stories.
Lord of the microphone, czar of sound, Charlie teaches kids to read out LOUD!
Charlie “the Noiseguy” Williams is a vocal sound impressionist, illustrator and author who shows how to use onomatopoeia to enhance reading, writing and storytelling.
Do your kids love noise? Charlie uses amazing vocal imitations that will inspire them to become roaring readers. This is comedy storytelling and parody poetry, not a genEric ode in the lineup.
Imagine the story of the Tortoise and the Hare being told with the sound of cars racing past or Jack chopping down a beanstalk using a chainsaw! Hear the sounds of Lewis and Clark paddling upstream, and practice the ABC’s of Onomatopoeia!
Onomatopoeia is derived from Greek words meaning “name” and “making”. It is the name given to a sound. A word imitation of noise. Like “crash” or “pow!”
Whether it’s a readers’ theater, school assembly, story-time or family fun night, the Noiseguy has something different for your author visit or kids comedy show. Guaranteed to please children of all ages!
Here is a musical cartoon I did a few years back. Turbo Granny for ADRA Canada. Murky Mayhem’s singing voice was the hardest! 😀
