    Although this is a movie about puppets, I personally believe that most ventriloquists were inspired by sesame street than Edgar Bergen, I know I was.

    Love Kevin Clash (Elmo)! I remember being introduced to him in Atlanta by Steve Whitmire. We took him to lunch and had a real Atlanta treat… lunch at the Varsity. Nice guy!

  3. Kevin is amazing and an inspiration to me. I can’t wait to see this movie!
