EP. 159 — Puppeteering

Kyle discusses his birthday and dealing with his new diet while Tig chats about joining a gym, and then everyone competes in a “who can push out their belly more” game. Then, Colleen Smith, Groundlings teacher and puppeteer at the Jim Henson company joins the gang to talk about taking Kyle for his colonoscopy, opinions on dirty improv, her path into a puppetry career, and then she leads everybody in a few improv games. Then, she goes deeper into the real logistics of how puppeteering works and delves into what’s nuts about puppetry.
