CJ Jones is a famous deaf storyteller who makes a living performing to deaf and hearing audiences all over the world. Storytelling plays a huge part in deaf culture. While it often does not include the human voice, voice is none the less present in how the teller connects to the audience. It gives the teller the freedom to openly express their message through gestures and facial expressions. ASL is a visual and gestural language and is often seen as a simple way of communication compared to English. In many ways, ASL is more complex than other languages because of the intensive use of imagery involved. As a branch of storytelling, it is often overlooked because of its no-voice aspect, but remains a prominent form of storytelling to many communities.
