Puppet Kaos - where Kelvin Kao plays with puppets and tell random stories

I am on TV!

Ah, that was fun.

The KTLA Morning News has this feature segment where they regularly send a reporter out to local events and establishments and broadcast from there. Two Fridays ago, they visited Puppet School! As Puppet School alumni, we got to be in the background with puppets as reporter Allie Mac Kay interviewed our teacher / master puppeteer Michael Earl. Though I had to wake up at 4am to be there for the news that’s live from 5 to 8am, it was a totally fun experience. And yes, Allie is like that on and off camera. One of the student in the background is a huge fan of KTLA Morning News and Allie, so she was so excited to be doing this.

We got a puppet version of the meteorologist Henry DiCarlo, and a puppet version of Allie. And many more puppets in the background. After several years of classes and three different stage productions, we’ve certainly accumulated quite a few puppets. I ended up grabbing a different one for each segment. (And they all happened to be green. I realized that just now.) You can see me as the camera panned across. You should be able to pick me out. I am the Asian one. Haha.
