Interview with Muppeteer Kevin Clash
Ryan Dosier - Hello, Muppet fans! I am so, so excited today because I get to share with all of you a brand new interview with yet another legend: Kevin Clash. Kevin, as you probably know, is the performer of Elmo on Sesame Street. Kevin has been a great part of Sesame Street for nearly 30 years now, performing other great characters like Hoots the Owl, Baby Natasha, Wolfgang the Seal, and Kingston Livingston III. He also performed Clifford with The Muppets. Recently, Kevin has directed numerous episodes and specials for Sesame Street and is the subject of the recent film Being Elmo: A Puppeteer's Journey which premiered this past Sunday at the Sundance Film Festival.
I was so beyond humbled to have the opportunity to sit down and talk to Kevin for a little bit on Skype about his characters, his directing, and more. We also get joined by a special guest that I'm sure you'll adore--because, quite frankly, it's fairly impossible not to. I'm also very pleased to announce that this will be our second all-audio interview! You'll hear me, Kevin, our special guest, and my geek out moments--what more could anyone need?
My huge thanks to Kevin and Elmo and all of the people listed there at the end credits! This really is a childhood dream come true and I'm so, so happy that I get to share it with you all!
