The Jim Henson Company has a special place in the hearts of multiple generations of TV viewers for its iconic children's program, Sesame Street. However, with the creation of the Miskreant Puppets live comedy improv show, viewers may find a darker place in their hearts for the Henson Company. The talented puppeteers pull the strings of new and original characters that, unlike Sesame Street, are anything but PG. Rather, they have seriously funny attitudes and edgy personas. These new characters perform sketches, songs and improv, which the crowd can enjoy in two different ways: Watch the puppeteers and puppets and see the mechanics behind it on stage, or ?view ?an above-stage screen ?that shows the puppets ?the way they'd appear on Sesame Street (i.e., no puppeteers).
