“Pitch Perfect! I’ve now seen several of these
anti-bullying programs and this is far and away

“’The Bully Dudes’ were the #1 assembly requested by our teachers to return to our school. The show hits beautifully on two levels: Information and Entertainment.
Mime Keith Berger and Actor David Prather team up to deliver a one two punch in this exceptionally informative entertainment. Adding humor and physical comedy the very serious subject of bullying, Berger and Prather enact a series of thought provoking vignettes:
"The Annoying Name calling Bully Dude" ... ignoring the bully is sometimes the best strategy.
"The Robot Bully Dude" ... learning that empathy is the opposite of bullying.
"The Bully Dudette” ... specific girl bully issues involving popularity and having the courage to stand up to the “mean girl”.
“The Buddy Bully Dude” ... the key role of the bystander and the importance of reporting bullying to an adult.
When is it 'bullying' and when is it just 'playing around'?
