Puppet Improv with The Josh and Tamra Show

SATURDAY 2/25 @ 1:00pm-4:00pm at DSI Comedy Theater


The Josh and Tamra Show is a long form puppet improv show created and performed by Josh Cohen and Tamra Malaga. The unique combination of long form improvisation plus its special brand of Muppet-style puppetry, makes for a truly unusual performance. Learn the tricks of puppet improvisation.


Josh Cohen is proud to have been a Muppeteer for the Jim Henson Company. He has toured the world teaching and performing puppetry for the Muppets. Notable performances have included work on Sesame Street, Bear in the Big Blue House (tour and TV), Old Dogs (starring opposite Bernie Mac, Robin Williams and John Travolta), and Muppetfest.

A professional puppeteer, film and television actor, Josh received his improv training from the original members of the Upright Citizens Brigade. While running a comedy theater in NYC, Josh met Tamra Malaga and started The Josh and Tamra Show, a duo which headlined comedy festivals all over the US and Canada, performing their unique brand of long-form puppet improv comedy. Josh is also the creator of the "BEST COMEDY" winning original puppet sitcom pilot, "APARTMENT 413.” Most recently, Josh received an Streamy award nomination for his ground breaking live streaming web puppet show, "MONKEY NEWS SOURCE".
