THE BULLY DUDES . . . and what to do about them

A highly effective anti-bullying assembly

Keith Berger teams up with actor David Prather to deliver a one-two punch in this exceptionally informative entertainment. Adding humor and physical comedy to 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.

“Pitch perfect! I’ve seen several of these anti-bullying programs and this is far and away the best!”
Jim Astman, Headmaster, Oakwood School, North Hollywood, CA

“Fantastic! Every school should have this assembly.”
3rd grade teacher, Serrania Ave. Elementary School, Woodland Hills, CA
