The Mimic Clinic

What is a mimic?

Performer? Parrot? Ape? Mock? Now we got a show!!

Charlie the Noiseguy presents a show full of impressions, where kids and their families will laugh and learn to make noise and voice imitations, and how to put them into reading, writing, speech and best-of-all…. PRANKS!

To be a professional MIMIC you must be a good listener and have a good sense of humor. A mimic can imitate family members and family pets! A mimic can imitate everyday sounds. From chirping birds to armpit noises. A mimic can take a sound, imitate it and make fun of it! Humor is a life skill. (and let’s face it, these days it’s all we have!)

We start off discussing what a mimic is and why he does it. Then we go into people/celebrity impersonations, accents and speech patterns. Then we discuss onomatopoeia (which is how we break down and “speak” the noises) and then cover an A-Z noise list. Finally we act out body animation and facial expressions, then put the sarcasm disclaimer in- how not to get in trouble with it, or taking it “too far”! Ha ha!

Sounds are all around us, everywhere, everyday. Charlie is a human parrot capable of imitation and mocking! Hear planes, trains and automobiles, flushes, shushes and sneezes! Noisy fun from a guy with a doctorate in Onomatopoeia! You won’t believe your ears!

A mimic can also take a nice picture and make fun of it too!
