When South Park Meets Sesame Street

 

I’ve mentioned before that I host a program called “Is It Art, Yet?” The show promotes fine arts by operating similar to a master class where the instructor helps the students refine their craft and break down a technique. I’ve recently added a co-host, Kathleen Knight (whom I like to call our resident fine-arts expert). She has over 40 years of experience in theater, music, and performance.

Our latest show spotlighted the musical, Avenue Q. This show is politically incorrect in that it says everything everyone else is afraid to and touches on some pretty sensitive topics such as racism and homosexuality. The Sesame Street comparison comes into play with the use of puppets, although in this case, the audience completely sees the puppeteers. The other similarity is with the character names Rod and Nicky (Bert and Ernie) and Trekkie Monster (Cookie Monster). The likeness ends there. Let’s just say, the show is not kid friendly, but I think that may make it more realistic.

To promote HCC’s upcoming performance, students from the musical were guests on the show.

Here are some pics from the set.

Every week, I work on a show called “Dynamo Zone” that covers the Houston Dynamo, other teams around the MLS and international soccer such as the EPL.We’ve had guests such as Dynamo Midfielder Ricardo Clark, host and commentator Glenn Davis, Dynamo Head Coach Dominic Kinnear and more.

The show records at various locations around BBVA Compass Stadium, and the pictures below are from a day of shooting on the top balcony outside of the President’s suite level.
