Randy Feltface – Puppet Comedian

Randy’s puppetry commentary on human absurdity is legendary, offering humorous yet pointed truths to audiences everywhere. For instance, Randy chronicled all the silly mistakes Ernest Hemingway made during his life – such as trying to read him when writing.

He frequently covers plagiarism as a topic of stand-up comedy and this often proves an engaging source of material for his performance.

He’s a puppet

Randy the purple puppet is widely considered one of Australia’s funniest comedians. Created by Heath McIvor and performing around the world regularly, Randy can often be found engaging audiences through observational humor that ranges from polemics, melancholia and existential issues while remaining humorous.

He possesses an acute sense of humor, managing to keep audiences in suspense for an extended period of time – almost making them forget that he’s just puppetry! Furthermore, his comic timing skills allow for even greater impactful performances.

Randy delivers solo shows that poke fun at modern culture and everyday life’s absurdities, while also serving as an accomplished writer who has garnered critical acclaim for his performances; one such show, Randy Writes a Novel was nominated for Edinburgh Comedy Festival‘s Best Show Award in 2015. Furthermore, Randy frequently collaborates with Sammy J, touring extensively as part of their duo act.

He’s a comedian

Heath McIvor is an Australian puppet comedian known for voicing and operating Randy Feltface on an international comedy circuit. Over eight solo stand-up shows, sold-out seasons in London and New York and multiple appearances at Montreal Just For Laughs festivals are his credentials as an entertainer.

He is widely recognized for his high-energy existential crisis humor and quick-witted, rapid arm movement. Additionally, he has collaborated with musical comedian Sammy J to produce various stage shows such as Ricketts Lane and Bin Night; more recently Modus Operandy debuted in Melbourne this year.

Sammy J often relies on him for making pointed observations about human foibles and absurdities, with often colorful language. Purple Privilege shows his more offensive side when he describes stomping on a cockroach that’s stuck in an empty coffee cup! In another show he admits his hypocrisy by calling his decision to give his date’s guinea pig an unexpected mercy kill as “hard choice for a vegan,” yet quickly confesses his love of eating fish and chips himself!

He’s a performer

Feltface is an Australian comedian renowned for his distinctive perspective of life and culture.

He has performed in theaters nationwide with sold-out seasons. Furthermore, he appeared on American television’s Bring the Funny show as well as recording multiple comedy specials.

He’s a writer

Randy Feltface is an Australian puppet comedian voiced and operated by Heath McIvor. He performs solo shows and tours internationally; additionally he has appeared on Australian television in both full length solo shows as well as Sammy J and Randy in Ricketts Lane series.

Randy Feltface took a throwback moment during a recent special. A fan had sent an email alerting him to how similar one of his older jokes was to one by George Carlin two years prior to Randy’s birth. While both bits may share similarity in tone and composition, neither are likely guilty of copying each other’s material directly.

This piece offers an intriguing examination of plagiarism in comedy, as well as the difficulties associated with trying to write new jokes while treading ground that many other comedians have already covered. Yet it is easy to see why Randy found this bit distressing, and how it might make him reconsider how he approaches his own work.
