    In college I took a class taught by Dame Billie Whitelaw, who voiced Augra in Dark Crystal.

    And didn't Jim have something to do with Dark Crystal?

    I've met the pop singer Krystal.
    She toured with the Backstreet Boys.
    The Backstreet Boys guest starred on Sesame Street, and would have met SS performers.
    Many SS performers would have met Jim Henson, I'm sure.

    JaniceFerSure, yours makes me laugh far more than it has a right to, simply because the basis for this game is "Six Degress of Kevin Bacon" :D

    Okay, getting on with it...I can link myself to Jim in two steps, with two different people. Here we go.

    Earlier this year my mom and I went to see Tim Conway and Harvey Korman on stage at the Coronado Theatre (you wouldn't know the place).
    Harvey Korman was a guest star on The Muppet Show, where of course he would have had contact with Jim Henson.

    Several years ago my family and I saw Victor Borge in concert at the MetroCentre (again, you wouldn't know the place).
    Victor Borge was also a guest star on The Muppet Show, where he would have met Jim Henson.
