Following his success entertaining children with Sesame Street
, Jim Henson launched The Muppet Show
in 1976 to appeal to a broader audience. That same year, Deep Throat
director Gerard Damiano helmed the "sexy muppet movie" Let My Puppets Come
. The film tells the story of three sad-sack executives who have 24 hours to pay back a mob boss. They naturally agree that the only surefire way to generate a wad that big is to make their own porno movie, and with that, the smutty puppets go to work. The Sweet & Sticky SeXXXy Ice Cream Social
screens the felt classic tonight, with proceeds going to charity. Free ice cream and performances by Joe Kloun and Blyre Cpanx are also on the bill.
