Attend a live-taping of Henson's late night, puppet talk show

The Jim Henson Company is developing an adult comedy talk show entitled, "Late Night Buffet"

By Phillip Chapman
June 6, 2006

Earlier today, Audiencesunlimited.com announced plans for a new late-night Henson talk show called “Late Night Buffet”. The show will star puppets and celebrity guests and will be recorded in front of a live studio audience at Henson Studios.

However, Audiences Unlimited originally posted info about the series stating that it would include Muppet characters and celebrity guests. Pictures of Kermit the Frog were also posted on the Audiences Unlimited website.

A Henson insider has confirmed that some of this information is incorrect. This proposed pilot program will not feature Kermit and other familiar Muppet characters owned by Disney, rather it will focus on new puppets developed by The Jim Henson Company. A television network has not been announced for the program.

Adult fans in California have a very special opportunity to attend a live taping of "Late Night Buffet" on July 22 in Hollywood. You can register for your tickets on-line at AudiencesUnlimited.com. Audiences Unlimited distributes free tickets for hundreds of network shows in Los Angeles and across the country. More information on this project should be announced later this week by The Jim Henson Company.

As of late, The Jim Henson Company has focused on more adult puppet endeavors. A live performance of Jim Henson's Puppet Improv was held in March at the U.S. Comedy Festival.
