Jon Koons a professional storyteller and actor with a wide range of voice variations. He is energetic, and does a full performance rather than just a "straight" reading (unless requested to do so). He does a plethora of accents such as British (various), Irish, German, Jewish, Indian, Mexican, Russian, Scottish, US Western, US Southern and many more. Plus dozens of character voices, including direct impersonations and those inspired by actors from Vaudeville thorough today.
His performances are tailored to the material, so he can adapt to any style, whether for kids, families or adults. He'll bring your words and characters to life in ways you may never even have imagined!
