If you would have told seven year-old Lou Mongello that one day he would have the opportunity to interview one of his favorite Muppets, he would have dropped his Muppet puppets on the floor and lost his little mind. Well, more than four decades later, he did just that, as this week, I am excited to share my conversation with Dave Goelz, the puppeteer and voice actor who worked with Jim Henson and performed as The Great Gonzo, Dr. Bunsen Honeydew, Waldorf, Zoot, and many others, including roles in Fraggle Rock, The Dark Crystal, Labyrinth, and as the voice of Figment in the Journey into Imagination with Figment attraction at Epcot. We talk about his career with the Muppets, life as and with Gonzo, and his new movie, Muppet Guys Talking.
