Our collective love and affection for the Muppets is a very real, and the feelings are a testament to the vision and heart of their late creator Jim Henson (1936 - 1990). His son, Brian Henson, who essentially grew up alongside Kermit and Miss Piggy, was tasked with overseeing the Muppet revival. Although the Muppets were sold to Disney in 2004, Brian is still pulling the strings with the Jim Henson Company. They’ve got a new stage show that features sort of anti-hero Muppets. It’s called Puppet Up: Uncensored!, a live improv show that’s definitely not for kids. Also on the show: Robbie Robertson provides some Thanksgiving food for thought and Georgina Reilly, Fraser Young and Luba Goy rock The Panel.
