Puppet Up! Television Special on Monday!

The Jim Henson Company's "Puppet Up" improv troupe will be performing two live shows of "Puppet Up!" tonight (7:00PM and 10:30PM at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas). These two improv shows will be filmed for the upcoming hour-long "Puppet Up – Uncensored" television special, set to air on Monday, November 20th at 11pm on TBS.

The improv cast includes Brian Henson, Julianne Buescher, Tyler Bunch, Ted Michaels, Drew Massey, Paul Rugg, Allan Trautman and Victor Yerrid; with Patrick Bristow serving as director and host. The troupe has been working together for over a year now, and strenuous rehearsals for tonight's Vegas shows have been running for several months. With a diverse set of characters brought to life world-renowned puppeteers, the show is truly innovative comedy.

So be sure to watch "Puppet Up! – Uncensored" on Monday night (November 20th at 11pm on TBS). This will be a one-time-only television event; TBS told me that "there are no re-airings scheduled at this time". This special, like most of TBS' Comedy Festival coverage, will only be broadcasted once (Monday, November 20th at 11pm on TBS) – so don't miss it! If you enjoy the show, be sure to let TBS know (it might be the kind of encouragement needed to get other Henson projects, and possibly more "Puppet Up!", on the TBS schedule).

So be sure to mark your calendars, set your VCRs, program your TiVo, tell your friends and get ready! You won't want to miss this special one-time-only television event...oh, did I mention "Puppet Up- Uncensored" will air on Monday, November 20th at 11pm on TBS?

I am currently watching TBS's showing of Puppet Up! WOW is all I can say, I'd buy a TV to watch this daily! I hope that TBS listens to our pleas and turns this into a daily event! Puppet Up! Is AMAZING! (I taped *Most* of it)

I agree with Ed! This is the funniest show for adults that I have seen in a long time. Can it be on every night??? America needs more shows like this to make us laugh.
