    Do you perform Birthday shows?

    Shows for "Big Kids" Has anyone performed at Senior Centers? My sister suggested that I offer to do a show, as a donation to the center. I am just curious if anyone has tried this?

    How to format live shows

    Flying solo I too perform by myself. I could use a helper to set up & help change puppets between skits in my live show. So far I have done this by having one of the puppets "go backstage" sometimes still talking to the audience while I change puppets. My show runs about 15-20 minutes...

    Sesame Street T-Shirts

    What turns me off with the latest Sesame product is the attempt to be "with it" by making the characters more "hip". Example: http://www.80stees.com/products/P-Is-For-Party-Bert-Shirt.asp I understand that SW is marketing these to teens, and needs to sell products that will sell...

    Being Elmo: A Puppeteer's Journey documentary in development

    I would love to see this on DVD too. How about a few clips from Kevin's performances on "Captain Kangaroo" or his very early Baltimore TV appearances, if they are available of course.

    Here's my puppet show!

    I have finally finished my puppet show, and even performed it live! I perform all of the puppets, my wife helps me change puppets between scenes. The show is called "Lil Red Sasquatch Hood", it is a silly retelling of "Little Red Riding Hood". Here is a little slide show of my puppet show...
