Meeting Brian Henson

I had the opportunity to sit in on a phone interview of Brian Henson [henson.com] [wikipedia] [IMDb] this afternoon, in support of the TBS.com broadband show Puppet Up! Uncensored.

A transcript of the interview should be available soon, since the show starts airing on Wednesday of this week (March 7, 2007) on TBS.com.

Most of the discussion centered around Puppet Up! Uncensored (whose live show will be in Australia for almost a month in the very near future) and how it came to be/what it’s about. I won’t spoil it for you, but the best phrase I heard was Brian describing the “anarchic quality” of the puppets, performers and humor – something he said was integral to what The Jim Henson Company does.

I’ll make sure I put up a link to the interview (fingers crossed on an mp3/podcast) when it’s available. For now though, be sure to catch Puppet Up! Uncensored on TBS.com this Wednesday, March 7!
