SHARI & LAMB CHOP
WORLD PREMIERE Shari Lewis was a dancer, singer, and magician but is best known as the ventriloquist behind sock puppets Charlie Horse, Hush Puppy and, of course, Lamb Chop. This lively doc charts the life, loves, and career hits and misses of this spunky perfectionist, who forever changed the face of children’s television. Featuring ventriloquists who she inspired and nostalgia-inducing clips, this upbeat portrait of brilliant Bronx native turned beloved TV personality brims, like Lewis, with warmth and charm. – Karen McMullen
