Categories: Interviews, Podcasts

In our final interview for Season 2, Joe pulls out the big guns and surprises Jarrod with none other than the legendary Frank Oz!

Frank needs no introduction, but let’s give him one anyway. Frank was the original performer of Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, Animal and Sam on The Muppet Show, as well as Bert, Grover and Cookie Monster on Sesame Street. He directed The Muppets Take Manhattan, before going on to direct films like Bowfinger and Death At A Funeral. A few years ago he released the incredible documentary Muppet Guys Talking, where he teamed up with Jerry Nelson and previous ‘To Introduce Our Guest Star’ guests Fran Brill, Bill Barretta and Dave Goelz!

Listen as we discuss Frank’s ideas for The Cheapest Muppet Movie Ever Made, teaming up with Dave Goelz for voice overs and drinking with Joan Rivers. Plus Muppets From Space wasn’t great, Jarrod’s getting surgery, and Frank thinks we’re terrible at our jobs.
