His name is Joe Pagliuca but you can call him Big Joe! That was the name given to him by preschoolers during his days as a teacher and it is now the name he uses in his role as a professional storyteller.

Using props, puppets, and lots of audience participation, Big Joe gives a unique storytelling performance that audiences will not soon forget! Drawing from a collection of over 500 stories, Big Joe tells everything from classic favorites, to multicultural folktales, to tales of his own creation. The stories are filled with adventure, excitement and lots and lots of laughs and will entertain both young and old. Big Joe has stories appropriate for everyone from toddlers to adults! This means that whether it’s an educational venue such as a preschool, elementary school, or library or a more entertaining venue like a birthday party, special event, festival or corporate function Big Joe has a show that will fit perfectly! No matter what the occasion Big Joe the Storyteller is right for you!!

Big Joe had visited our kids' preschool day care center (KinderCare) from time to time. We had such fond memories of his performances that we hired him for our daughter's 6th birthday party. Kids just love him--lots and lots of giggles and smiles!
