One of Norfolk’s gems, the Puppet Man, has auditioned for Britain’s Got Talent. A photo was taken by an audience member which had been shared online.
The photo of the puppet man, real name David Orville Perry, shows him performing his famous puppet spasm dance in front of Simon Cowell and the other judges.
His act which he regularly performs on the streets of Norwich and Great Yarmouth, has been described as if Rod Hull and Emu were on acid, singing karaoke, while being given an electric shock.
The photo shows that none of the judges have pressed their red button but it is not known if he progressed to the next stage of the competition.
We have asked the Puppet Man to comment but he has remained tight lipped on the BGT audition. Although he did say, “Rarr ra raaa rarrra da daaa darrrr da raa rarrr! Debbie McGee is ma mum! ”
We’re not sure what to make of that or the authenticity of the photo , but we are sure we will be watching Britain’s Got Talent to see if Norfolk’s most famous busker performs.
The Puppet Man has been seen on national television before. He has appeared on Sky programme Soccer AM, where character Frankie Fryer visits football grounds and surrounding areas around the country.
Watch the video below, truly outstanding work especially at the end.
