This is not your children's puppet show! Puppet Up! -- Uncensored is a hilarious melding of comedic improvisation with puppetry. A live show created for adults, it features over 60 puppets, six puppeteers and no censored language or content. This motley group of characters is brought to life by the world-renowned puppeteers of Henson Alternative, the adult and very uncensored arm of the Jim Henson Company. The show even includes several recreations of classic pieces created by Jim Henson, Jane Henson and Frank Oz that haven't been performed live in decades. Not your average night at the improv, this innovative, sometimes dark show is definitely not for children. Learn More

Disappointed, while I appreciate Taylor, Alan and others sharing fresh new material. Why were we subjected to the less than Sterling tale once again when I last heard it two years ago in Wordplay? Ick. Shock does not equal craft. I would not have attended had I known old material would have been presented once again.
I hold 826LA in enormous regard and I think that the Benefit would have been much better served minus the one repulsive, reheated tale.

My friend and I went and had a fantastic time. Everyone was hilarious and spot-on, and the music selections were right on target. I would definitely recommend this event to anyone looking to relax and laugh at the absurdities of the world.
Quotes & Highlights
Goldstar members loved Wordplay at Fake Gallery. Their great reviews won the show a Roar of the Crowd award. Read the reviews here.
WordPlay is a new spin on storytelling. Part This American Life, part stand-up comedy, it’s where some of L.A.’s best writers and comedians come and share their true stories while our DJ spins a real-time soundtrack – like an organ player in a silent movie theater, but less Olde-Tyme.
And this special, best-of performance at a new, larger venue is to benefit 826la, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting students ages 6 to 18 with their creative and expository writing skills, and to helping teachers inspire their students to write.
A great show for a great cause.
