Late Night Buffet


Last night I got to puppeteer on a new Jim Henson Company pilot called Late Night Buffet with Augie and Del. I was assisting the very talented Julianne Buescher with Louisa Cappellini, the band leader and keyboard player. Bill Barretta and Brian Henson performed the co-hosts Augie and Del, assisted by Michelan Sisti and Leslie Carrara. Puppeteers Karen Prell, Kevin Carlson, Tyler Bunch, and James Murray performed the monkey band. The pilot was taped before a live studio audience at the Jim Henson Company studios.

Thanks for your kind words. I’m glad you were able to make it to the taping. Those puppets are amazing, the builders in the Creature Shop did an outstanding job in a very short amount of time. I’m glad you like the band, We all had fun performing them!

Do you know if the show was picked up or if this is a dead pilot?
