Spittingimage antashbury

Asbury with Margaret Thatcher Spitting Image puppet.

Anthony Asbury has been puppeteering in film and television for about 20 years, and has worked on several Jim Henson productions. He was one of the many puppeteers to contribute to Labyrinth, and created numerous characters during both seasons of The Wubbulous World of Dr. Seuss on Nick Jr.

Asbury has also guested on British programs like Absolutely Fabulous, and puppeteered for Spitting Image alongside Louise Gold and others. He also performed Rondo on Allegra's Window and Lionel Lion on Between the Lions.

He has had a theatrical career as well, playing three seasons in The Haggadah at New York's Shakespeare Festival after being discovered by Julie Taymor, and going on to perform Audrey II in the original off-Broadway production of Little Shop of Horrors. He followed the play to London and Sydney, and performed in the Frank Oz-directed film version. He has assisted Marty Robinson and others in the Broadway revival of the musical (also performing in the ensemble), and continued on with the touring company.
