Subject: [Puptcrit] Fran Dowie


Fran Dowie did two acts that remain strong memories. His Vent act in which everything goes wrong--even the dummy's body falls apart---at the end you see the dummy's head above a single foot. Fran's foot perched on a chair so the dummy could sit on his knee, but even the chair fell apart.

Another bit was how to make a marionette from a bagel: The punchline was that if you did not make money on this act, at least you could eat the puppet.

That ending may have had great significance for starving puppeteers.
