Thursday night in Montreal, Canada, the Muppets performed their own gala as part of the Just For Laughs Comedy Festival. No one represents comedy better than the Muppets, so this was a hugely exciting event. Check out The Montreal Gazette‘s audience review of the show to find out how awesome it was. One of our Muppeteer friends was so excited about how great the show went, that he emailed us to tell us a little bit about it, saying, “We performed two shows last night at the Just for Laughs comedy festival in Montreal. We all had an AMAZING time as the Muppets performed an uber-rare live Muppet Show style show in front of 3,000 screaming fans–with the Muppeteers often in full-view of the audience. The performance will eventually air on TV (only in Canada? I don’t know…) Of course, on TV all you’ll see is the Muppets and not us. However, we got a group curtain call as ourselves (with puppets on our hands) to a stellar standing ovation. The Canadian crew and writers could not have been nicer or more professional.”
With the help of Muppet Wiki and The Montreal Gazette we’ve gathered a collection of photos from the evening. They all make the show seem absolutely incredible. Beauregard? Scooter? Walter? Muppet Labs? Floyd? Fozzie stand up? Incredible! Plus, check out the Muppeteer curtain call, the first picture below. Congratulations to everyone involved on what sounded like two absolutely incredible shows!
