Jacob Graham is a puppeteer and puppet builder living in Brooklyn NY. He began his career as a puppeteer with the Walt Disney Company, where he worked with hand, rod, and mechanical puppets for nine years. He’s also performed at regional and national Puppeteers of America Festivals, the Orlando Puppet Festival, the Orlando Fringe Festival (as part of the IBEX Puppetry showcase), and the National Puppet Slam.
Graham was trained in television puppetry techniques by Martin P. Robinson, Kevin Clash, and Matt Vogel at a Sesame Street workshop in 2006. He’s recently worked with Basil Twist, The Puppet Kitchen, Up In Arms puppet troupe, and the illustrious Kate Brehm.
Graham is currently developing a new series, The Creatures of Yes, a show about a ragtag group of friends trying-and sometimes failing-to make sense of the world around them. The show delivers a universal message about appreciating one another’s differences.
