The Muppet Mindset Turns 7

Ryan Dosier – I can’t believe The Muppet Mindset has been going strong for a whopping seven years. The amount of content and fun that has been produced in that time is truly staggering to me.

The Electric Mayhem Rocked Outside Lands

Jarrod Fairclough – Live Muppet events are always risky.  At the Montreal Just For Laughs Gala a few years ago there were lip syncing issues and heads galore.  Which is to be expected, of course, as a live event has far less preparation and more unexpected issues.
