Funny Boy: The Richard Hunt Biography is the life story of Muppet performer Richard Hunt. As one of the "Original Five" performers in the Muppet troupe, Hunt's characteristic irreverence was an integral part of Sesame Street, The Muppet Show, Fraggle Rock, three major Muppet movies, a handful of short-lived shows, countless specials and even a couple of non-Muppet films. Hunt died in the AIDS epidemic at just 40 years old, predeceased by many friends as well as the love of his life. Yet day after day, in the face of grief and tragedy, Hunt showed up to work and was reliably funny. Was he just that talented, that driven, that resilient, or what? Yes, yes, and yes. Hunt would sneer at being called "inspiring" but his life story exemplifies how to follow your passion, adapt to life's surprises, genuinely connect with everyone from glitzy celebrities to gruff cab drivers - and have a hell of a lot of fun along the way.
