“David Novak is an on-stage wizard, spinning his tales with wild creativity, intelligence, and wit.”
–– Rapid River Magazine 
“Cindy and I loved every second of your show.  Handstands?  Tree Pose? (without a wall to assist as I need).  And that’s just the physical part.  I loved how you had one theme that changed course within the story, and you that you called back so many previous fun stuff.  I’ve talked to many folks who were there, and everyone was overjoyed.
You add a dimension to storytelling that is unique.  I’ve not heard another teller who has your style and content.  You’re something.”
 –– Chuck Fink
President, Asheville Storytelling Circle
