This Tuesday we got tickets to go a taping of the George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight show on CBC. We both grew up with Strombo, but we really wanted to go because of the guest; Miss Piggy. Overall it was interesting; they were filming little bits and pieces for a number of different segments, and then did the interview with Miss Piggy. This took ages to prep for and set up. The entourage (the puppet has her own stylist. Serious.) and the puppeteer were very specific and exact about what worked and what didn’t. We were also told no less than four times that cameras were absolutely not permitted (to maintain the magic, you know), so unfortunately no photos of Miss Piggy.
Details: Tickets to the taping are free and can be found here. There are only a few more weeks until the show ends due to Strombo’s new Hockey Night in Canada gig, so if you want to go, make sure to do it soon!
The Miss Piggy interview airs tonight (Thursday, March 20) at 11:30 on CBC.
