Dinsey’s Fozzie Bear is the self-proclaimed “funniest stand up bear comedian in the world.” Fozzie began his career touring small clubs where he was hit by every variety of fruit and vegetable in the world. After being bonked by an over-ripe cantaloupe, he decided television would be a good (and less messy) way to make a living. As fate would have it, Kermit the Frog happened to be in the audience that night. Impressed by Fozzie’s perseverance and his willingness to suffer the slings and arrows of outraged audiences, Kermit asked him to join a new show he was producing.
That show was, of course, The Muppet Show. Since getting his big break on that international television series in 1976, Fozzie has shared the stage with such legendary comics as Steve Martin, John Cleese, Bob Hope and more.
From his polka dot tie, his ‘funny’ pork pie hat and trademark “Wocka-Wocka”, right down to the hook that pulls him off stage, Fozzie is a comic in the classic vaudeville tradition.
