Personal Quote:

People always ask us about being the voices of the Muppets, and I know what they mean, but supplying the voice is just one small element of what it is we do. In essence, we are actors just like any other actor. We portray a role, and it's a full performance, not just a voice. The established Muppet Performers literally are the characters they bring to life. See more »

Trivia:

Shares the same birthday (September 24) as original Kermit the Frog Jim Henson. See more »
