Live Jazz & Funny Food is a unique way to entertain kids and families.

Bill Wurtzel is a renowned artist and jazz guitarist. In his Jazz & Funny Food performances, Bill plays tunes illustrated with projections of his wacky, healthy food art. Then he shows how to make the dishes. He also explains how improvising with food and music are related. Audiences love it.

Bill has brought Jazz & Funny Food to the Jazz at Lincoln Center, American Museum of Natural History, American Folk Art Museum, Children’s Museums, Mohonk Mountain House, dozens of NYC public and private schools, Fairway Markets, and internationally in Sweden and Israel.

Funny Food is lots of fun
Not only fun for me
Funny Food’s for everyone
In my family

Grandma made an apple cat
Grandpa made a boat
Uncle Harry made a melon hat
Aunt Lucy made a goat

Father made a waffle truck
Mother made a swing
Sister made a pancake duck
And we ate everything

Funny Food is lots of fun
Not only fun for me
Funny Food’s for everyone
In my family
