Remembering Leslie Press

By January 29, 2014 August 7th, 2017 No Comments

Sad news from the UK…British puppeteer Leslie Press has passed away.

Leslie was primarily a Punch and Judy Man (or “Professor”) and he learned the trade from a master, his father Percy Press Sr. who is generally regarded as one of the greatest Punch and Judy performers of all time. Leslie followed in his famous father’s footsteps, becoming a talented puppeteer in his own right who performed across Britain and toured internationally.

From the Punch and Judy Facebook Page:

Rest in peace Leslie.
