Tim Lagasse is an award-winning puppeteer, puppet designer/fabricator, and film maker.
He earned his BFA from The University of Connecticut's Puppet Arts Program. Upon graduating, he became the first student to receive the Jim Henson Memorial Prize in Puppetry. His series A Show of Hands (which he wrote and puppeteered) won him a number of awards as well. Lagasse acts as a puppeteering consultant, and creates puppet films for stations like PBS, MTV, HBO, and Nickelodeon. His most current project is performing Crash on Disney's Crash & Bernstein. He enjoys performing puppetry for a more mature audience also, and does so at various puppet events and slams across New York and New England.
In addition to his performance credits, Tim also teaches the art of puppetry, lecturing at the Lincoln Center Foundation and instructing students on modern television puppet techniques at the Puppet Arts Program at the University of Connecticut and the O'Neill Theatre Center Puppetry Conference.
