Henson Improv

I hope it's a true improv and no pre-planned sketches. One of the traits of a great Muppet performer is doing improvs with the puppets, and being humorous while doing it. You can be a great puppeteer, but if you don't have the gift for improv, you can't be a real Muppeteer.
The sketches will not be pre-planned, it is all truly improv. The puppeteers have been training with Groundlings performer Patrick Bristow for the past nine months to perfect their improv skills. Just like the Groundlings (the legendary Los Angeles improv company that launched the careers of Phil Hartman, Lisa Kudrow, Jon Lovitz and others) the sketches will be performed based on audience suggestions.

Maybe I can attend this. I really would love to. I need some autographs of these good preformers. Maybe they'll talk about the "Muppet Amercain Idol" thing or whatever it's called. But I'll let ya'll know.

attending the event is out of my realm of possibility, but a small part of me looks like it will be involved if those puppets on the promo pic are involved, i built the goat Victor is holding for Telling stories with Tommie DePola,
