Hey you guys!

Chris Sullivan, who you may know as Shock on The Electric Company, is one of my dearest pals. Chris and I do all kinds of musical improv performances together, and he even accompanied me in my 2009 solo show, Brown Ambition. Chris is an amazing beatboxer and performer, and I’ve loved watching him on The Electric Company with my daughter. (Chris is also one of the producers on the show.) This week I had a chance to see Chris perform in front of a live audience of kids, and he was great. Shock and Manny Spamboni – played by the hilarious Dominic Colon – entertained a small group of bloggers and their kids at an Electric Company event at Sesame Workshop in New York. Afterwards, the kids in attendance had a chance to check out the new Prankster Planet games on PBS Kids Go! online, as well as the new Electric Company iPad app. Here are some shots I took of the show and the schwag I got to go home with:

Shock and Manny to the kids. Shock even gave everyone a beatboxing lesson!

The Electric Company is airing new Prankster Planet episodes daily on PBS. Check your local listings for times. For more on our adventures with Shock and the educational value of the show, check out The Mama Maven’s coverage of the event.
