I write and perform puppet shows that will entertain children as well as adults. The shows have a colorful cast of characters that engage in stories that are relevant in todays society. The shows deal with such issues as bullying, nightmares and self esteem, to name just a few. The shows can be modified to suit any accommodations.
Josh and Uncle Morty did a show for our Kids Office Party and it was wonderful. The puppetry was amazing and Uncle Morty knew just how to keep the audience involved and interested - especially since the ages ranged from 1-11. The jokes may have been for the kids but he adults laughed all the way through! Something for everyone with this show and I would highly recommend it. Josh was the ultimate professional and showed endless patience and customer service during our many reschedules. Wonderful experience all round. Can't wait to book them again!
The show was amazing, the kids as well as the adults were entertained the entire time. I highly recommend them for any event.
Josh was a pleasure to deal with and was very accommodating as we had to postpone our event. Would highly recommend. Can't wait for the show when we reschedule.
Josh and Danny, you both exceeded our expectations!! I normally don't write reviews but WOW I was blown away!! We enjoyed everything from the story, the humor, the singing and the interaction with the audience. My daughters and I are still talking about it today. They loved it! Your show made the party unforgettable!! So happy and honored that you were able to make it to Valhalla!! 😃👌🤗 Thank you so much!!
Josh and his brother brought a entire theatre to our event! We were so impressed. The kids with special needs and their typical peers all giggled and laughed throughout the show.
We highly recommend Josh. Be is professional and great to work with. His props were adorable.
We will definitely hire him again!
Josh and Dan provided our preschool with a professional, entertaining and interactive puppet show. The children were attentive and giggling non-stop and the staff were having some laughs, too! Thank you gentlemen for a thoroughly entertaining show! See you again!
Josh and Danny are the best! They really catch the attention of kids of all ages from my one year olds to adults. Family and friends are still talking about them three days later. They are a big hit for any party.
Response from Josh Bacher:
Thank you so much for the wonderful review! We are so glad you enjoyed the show! We had a great time performing for you and your lovely family. Give us a call anytime and we will write a whole new show just for you!
I'm so happy I booked Josh! He was so quick and responsive to all my questions. Him and Danny came extra early and were able to do such an entertaining show within the tight space given. All the kids loved it even though they were all under 4 and my son who turned 1 watched the entire thing and was smiling and laughing. I am booking them again!
The show was awesome kids and the adults enjoyed it alike. It was the perfect show to keep adults entertained at a "be a kid again" party. The kids all sat still head tilted up to the stage. Strangers walked up to us in the park asking for their card. I Will Hire Again!
Response from Josh Bacher:
Thank you so much Danii! It was a joy doing the show for you! Happy Birthday once again to Ivy! Looking forward to working for you again.

What to Expect
See a hilarious puppet show with colorful characters and humor that will have children and grown ups alike laughing for days.
I am a professional actor, comedian, writer, and puppeteer that has been working steadily for the past 15 years. The last 5 have been devoted to working in the Jersey City school district writing and performing our own puppet shows for an after school program. My brother Danny and I will perform a puppet show that will entertain all members of your family and friends. We will also add personal touches to any one of our shows including children's names and special events such as birthdays, anniversaries, etc. We bring our own adjustable stage that is 6 feet wide, 6 feet deep, and 7-8 feet tall. (It is all adjustable and can be changed to meet space requirements.) The shows are fast paced and funny with lots of singing and focused on children's issues regarding todays society. Bullying, self esteem, and dealing with nightmares are just a few of the topics we deal with in our shows. After the show, we have a wonderful question and answer session where the children talk to the puppets and ask them any questions. You can even have your children pose for a picture with the puppets. If you hire me, you will be so pleased and entertained, you will want us back every year.
Additional Booking Notes
We have our own transportable folding stage with black curtains that can be made larger or smaller depending on the space. We also supply own sound system with mics and ipod setup. We can setup for indoor or outdoor shows.
