Warrick Brownlow-Pike is extremely proud to be the only British Sesame Street Muppet performer. His passion for performing began when he was just 2-years-old. Inspired by the works of Jim Henson, he has always known that it was his destiny to work with The Muppets on the happiest Street in the world.
His association with Sesame Street began back in 2010 when Elmo visited England and needed a helping hand. But it was in the Sesame Workshop/CBeebies co-production The Furchester Hotel, where he first performed Gonger as a background monster. Gonger quickly worked his way up from being hotel chef to Food Truck owner on Sesame Street. Warrick developed and produced a pilot of Cookie Monster’s Foodie Truck which successfully went on to debut in Season 48 and is still going strong. He has also enjoyed writing episodes of the segment for the show.
For 14 years he has worked as a Puppeteer and content creator for the BBC on their biggest puppet projects. He has been entertaining children on the BBC preschool channel CBeebies with his original character Dodge the Dog for 11 years and counting. Dodge has worked with the biggest celebrities around and even performed for the Queen of England! Other credits include performing Jobi in BAFTA winning Get Well Soon, CLOGS on the BBC’s flagship educational show BITESIZE, Marion in BBC Three’s MONGRELS and with The Jim Henson Company on That Puppet Game Show. He was a U.K. Muppet Performer on the Disney movie Muppets Most Wanted and works with the Disney Muppets whenever they visit the U.K. He worked with The Jim Henson Company, taking on the role of second assistant Puppet Captain on the Emmy Award-winning Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance. He also had the pleasure of performing the Chamberlain Skeksis in this ground-breaking series.
Other shows Warrick has worked on include the iconic U.K. satirical puppet series Spitting Image, BBC Comedy Proms at the Royal Albert Hall, Ed and Oucho’s Excellent Inventions, Transmission Impossible, ITV’s This Morning, Blue Peter, The X Factor, All Over the Place, Barkstage at The Voice with Hacker and Dodge, Spot Bots, HackerTime and the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Most recently Warrick created a show that the BBC has commissioned called Meaban & Moo. The series teaches the Gaelic language with the help of characters Meaban the puffin and Moo the highland cow. He co-writes the series and performs Meaban! He is also currently producing and writing a concert with Hacker and Dodge and the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra.
