about this episode
On this week's show we're hopping across the pond to chat with a real puppetry work horse: Phil Fletcher. Phil has been performing Hacker the Dog live on CBBC nearly every day for over twelve years. He is the prolific puppet builder and cabaret performer behind his original troupe 'The Gluvets.' Phil has also appeared as an additional performer in numerous television programs, including Netflix's Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance.
We talk with Phil about his early aptitude for puppet construction, the benefits and challenges of performing on live television, and his non-stop drive to create original, truly unique characters. Tune in for an off-the-wall conversation that goes from Banana Splits to Feebles in no time at all! PLUS: find out how you can write-off a bathroom mirror on your taxes!
