On Friday night I got a chance to see NYC’s Josh & Tamra through the 2013 Chicago Improv Festival and then did a workshop with them on Saturday afternoon. Josh Cohen is a Henson / Muppet trained puppeteer and went over the basics of good puppetry (proper lip syncing, character development, etc)
This is my favorite puppet from the show. Her name is Jessica and she’s essentially just a doll with a puppet head. Real unique but also creepy and hilarious. Weird combination.
