Sock Puppet Theatre

Hi Kids!

It’s been a while I know. I’ve been quite busy actually. I just started a 5 day a week, 8-5 job, and I’ve moved house – so it’s been rather hectic. I’ve also been helping my brother prepare for the Sexy Detective Show – by Doing some Animations, voiceovers, and even “acting” in two sketches. I’ve also been working on a bit of processing sound based work ( which I’ll be going into detail in a few posts time ).

This weekend I head to Future Festival to see my good friends Hyperion perform – As well as the Chemical Brothers, Datarock, And the Shapeshifters. Should be a great weekend and I’ll be doing a blogpost Sunday morning to tell you all about it!

And just to show you that I havn’t been doing absolutely nothing, here is the latest Not So Impressive Entertainer :

Leo and his Shakespearean Sock Puppet Troupe

Leo and his Shakespearean Sock Puppet Troupe
“Leonard firmly believed the “one man show” circuit seriously lacked thespianic integrity and so mounted an exhaustive season of Shakespearean adaptations, all designed to be performed by carefully crafted and skillfully manipulated sock-puppets. His sock puppet monologues left viewers in raptures, the characterisations and voices compelling and realistic. His love scene betwixt Romeo and Juliette left not an eye in the sparse auditorium dry.

Leo was arrested during a particularly ambitious crowd scene, when an observent elderly spinster in the gathered crowd noticed that the newly arrived “Lady Macbeth” seemed less animated than the four other characters already in play and fainted when the sock slipped off to reveal that Leo’s large leather codpiece was more than just for show.

Interestingly, Leo became a “special friend” to many a cellmate, and was regularly required to reprise his “Lady Macbeth” routine for a smaller but none the less appreciative audient.” – Biography by Wonko
