BOOK JOE GANDELMAN’S ACCLAIMED VIRTUAL SHOW
For 30 years Joe Gandelman has performed across the U.S. and in Canada… Now you can bring Joe and his friends to your home, office, school no matter where you are in the world.
VIRTUAL SHOWS CAN BE FUN INTERACTIVE:
Joe has become known for using a BIG cast of state-of-the-art puppet and dummy characters in fast-paced shows packed with laughs and interaction. His virtual shows contain all of the same popular ingredients.
He did his first virtual show in late March, after the lockdown. Since then, he has done virtual shows for clients in San Francisco, New York, Florida and elsewhere. His many clients included a group of 250 families across the U.S. and in Asia, private parties, camps and religious groups.
Virtual shows aren’t the same as live shows. But virtual shows have their own pluses and Joe can help you connect and bring joy to friends, family, clients, employees, schools, weddings and many other people and events.
HOW JOE’S VIRTUAL SHOWS INTERACT:
Joe will try to get some info about the event before the show. Rather than calling up volunteers to try popular show segments as the mask bit and where a volunteer tries to talk with a dummy, Joe addresses some audience members by name and even will ask the audience some question. If it’s on Zoom, he goes to gallery view so he can interact with specific audience member. Joe uses Zoom backgrounds with a green screen or his stage backdrop.
VIRTUAL SHOWS OPEN ALL KINDS OF POSSIBLITIES FOR YOU AND YOUR GUEST AND FRIENDS:
- BOOK A REGULAR SHOW, private party, a school virtual show, corporate event. You choose the length of the show. Joe has done virtual shows that have ranged from 15 minutes to 60 minutes.
- BOOK A VIRTUAL GREETING CARD: Give Joe some info and he can send a customized greeting with one or more of his “cast.” A birthday? Graduation? Anniversary? It works well for any occasion or age group.
- BOOK A VIRTUAL ROAST (short or long). Joe has an extensive library of jokes (many written by himself and professional comedy writers). He can customized a roast. The jokes would be delivered by Joe and one or more puppets.
- BOOK JOE AS AN EMCEE: Joe has emceed at live events. He can emcee with or without one or more “cast” members and help make your event fun and successful. Joe has also been on variety show bills all over the country and has worked closely with emcees from San Francisco, to Kansas, to Florida.
SO CAN A VIRTUAL SHOW BE AS MUCH FUN AND INTERACTIVE AS A LIVE SHOW?
Y-e-s as the response to Joe’s virtual shows since March can attest.

“Joe’s virtual show was a fun/funny interactive birthday event for both the kids and parents. Want a creative way to celebrate a birthday? Joe’s your guy! My child was talking about the puppets and the characters for days after the event!”
“My son and his friends loved Joe Gandelman’s performance … it was wonderful seeing them happy and laughing throughout… would recommend him to anyone who wants to have a great time!”
“Joe did a great job engaging the kids (and over Zoom, no less– not an easy medium!). He had my son almost falling off his chair laughing 🙂 We both LOVED it!”
“Joe was great! Everything about the show was fantastic. The kids and families were very engaged and entertained. Joe kept everyone involved and encouraged kids to participate. The characters kept coming out of his sleeve. He’s super friendly and reaches out to the kids in so many ways. You couldn’t tell it was a virtual show based on the kids’ reaction. At the end of the show he even taught the kids some secrets of the profession! Highly recommended!”
“He was great – exactly what we were looking for! kids and parents greatly enjoyed!”
“When you’re stuck at home and there’s social distancing rules in your state, you have very limited options on activities for your kid’s birthday. Enter Joe Gandelman’s virtual puppet show! My daughter, her friends, and all the parents were very entertained with Joe’s comedy and his ventriloquy skills. He communicated very well on what to expect during the show and showed up early on Zoom to do a quick sound/video check to reduce any hiccups. Highly recommend Joe Gandelman for virtual shows to add some smiles and laughter during these times.”
“The kids were laughing out loud and talked about it for days after. Such a great way to relieve some boredom and give them something fun to share together. Thanks! “
