“Quiet Riot” Hilarious Stories for the 21st Century!

Brothers Bill and Dave Mettler excel at making you laugh!

Brothers Bill and Dave Mettler bring tales that make you laugh with delight!

Witness first hand: flying meteors, molten planets, thunder, lightning, burning wheat crops, a raging tsunami, revved-up chain saws, the Flintstones, a fast food hamburger and an imaginary ball point pen. Two brothers, better known as the Quiet Riot, blend storytelling, comedy, music, and sound effects at the Earlville Awesome House in a free Family Series Event on Friday morning, August 15th at 11am. “Quiet Riot” is a team of two zany and hilarious brothers — Bill Mettler, Executive Storyteller, and David Mettler, Person in Charge of Noises and Opportunities. Before the show at 10 am, there will be a free Peacemaker workshop!

The Quiet Riot delivers an unusual, infectious form of comedy that is exuberant, fresh and funny. A company of just two performers, their versatility makes audience believe there are many more. Their programs are packed with humor and social comment, executed with high energy, physical grace and genuine enthusiasm. The Quiet Riot performances have been called “zany”, “spellbinding”, “thought provoking”, “marvelously funny”, “intelligent”, “a collection of wisdoms and joys that no freethinker should chance to miss”. Tight, quickly paced and thoroughly delightful, The Quiet Riot shows captivate people of all ages.

Since 1978 Quiet Riot has given over 5000 presentations to reveal the inherent strength within diversity and our interdependence with one another and the natural world in the 21st century. They have performed at The Lincoln Center, 3M, IBM, NASA Goddard Space Center, Sustainable Business Network, Green Festival/DC, Earth Policy Institute, Foundation for Global Community and the UN Earth.

Peacemakers of Utica, NY will do a free workshop before the show at 10 am…so sign up in advance! The Peacemaker Program leads activities and games to help youth to work together, solve problems, and trust and support each other.  (Space is limited for the workshop)

These brothers are so spontaneous and fun that the seriousness of life lessons that form the back drop of their stories may not be apparent! Parents may be interested that this program is based on the work of William Glasser, noted author, researcher and psychiatrist. Glasser posits that there are four basic human qualities needed to create a safe, healthy and supportive environment: BELONGING, CHOICE, FUN & RESPECT.
