Steelhead Brewing Co is not as good anymore, but Britta's is very good.

Love the Irvine Barclay Theater, and the show was enjoyable, but the fake audience participation, using "Shills" was very contrived and annoying.

sorry to say we both found this much anticipated performance disappointing in terms of spark, cleverness and wit. the improv/puppeteer mesh didn't seem to work... continued

Third time that we have seen this and enjoy it every time. Each show is different and based on improvisations, mostly from audience suggestions. Clever, funny, creative and hilarious. Not for prudes or the easily offended.

Quotes & Highlights

Be forewarned! They may look like cuddly little muppets wonderfully crafted by the Henson Workshop, but they have a wicked sense of humor.

Description

Find out more about these Miskreant Puppets at their website.

No two performances are alike. Host Patrick Bristow and six superb comedian/puppeteers improvise on suggestions from the audience to create a one-of-a-kind show that can be enjoyed two different ways. Watch the action onstage, or view the live puppet feed projected on screens overhead. It’s double the fun. Each show also features recreations of a couple of Jim Henson classics that first aired on the Ed Sullivan Show and launched the Henson phenomenon.
