Leo Petersen


Leo Petersen's handiwork

Leo Petersen, also known as "Lejo", is a puppeteer who produces his own inserts for Sesamstraat, the Dutch version of Sesame Street.

Using only his bare hands and wooden eyes for puppets, the non-verbal "Lejo" shorts were first seen on Sesamstraat in 2003. Lejo also appeared in the special Open Huis in Sesamstraat. The character he uses the most on Sesamstraat is a "finger puppet" named Mano.

Besides his work for Sesamstraat, Leo Petersen has his own one man show, "Handywork".
