Career

During an interview with Jimmy Kimmel, David stated he first developed his passion for puppeteering upon attending church Sunday school in his youth. He claims to have gotten his start in Hollywood touring with comedian Robin Williams and from making an appearance on The Gong Show in 1977.[2] In 1990, he made an appearance in Golden Girls and in 1993 in Wings.[citation needed]

Hart frequently appears on the television shows The Del Talk Show, Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! as well as Tim and Eric Nite Live!. In 2004, David Hart was featured in the documentary Public Access Hollywood.[3] He made an appearance on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart in 2004 and again 2009, as well as on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in 2004. He also appeared in a commentary on Tim And Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! Season One DVD. Throughout late April and early May 2008 he performed live as part of Tim and Eric's Awesome Tour 2008.[4]

He can often be seen performing with his puppet "Doug the Dog" just outside the Hollywood Bowl after shows, as well as at the La Brea Tar Pits and Music Center of Los Angeles, and is known to many concert goers simply as the "puppet man". He has also been known at times as David Hart, David Unger Hart, David King Liebe Hart and DL Hart.[2]

Music

Hart writes his own music, mostly about religion, aliens, women, and his life. He has teamed up with his friend and fellow public-access television host Adam Papagan to create music together, with Hart writing lyrics and singing, and Papagan creating the music. They have four full albums and an EP released together. Hart's songs from Tim and Eric are also featured on Awesome Record, Great Songs!.

David Hart has been known to sell an album titled Christian Hymns And Songs Of Praise[5] at shows during the Tim and Eric Awesome Tour 2008, as well as the 2009 tour. In Spring 2011, Hart and Papagan toured the East and West Coast with a newly-formed band that played punk music exclusively, including new interpretations of their older material. The Best of David and Adam cassette tape is being released by Cellar Hits late-October [6] .

Personal life

David was born in Park Forest, Illinois and grew up in Chicago, where his father worked for the United States Postal Service and Chicago Public Schools. Having a deep impression at a very young age, the history of the railroad system has been a lifelong passion of David's. He has written several songs discussing both his personal remembrances and history of mid-20th century railroad lines.

David claims that, when he was younger, he was abducted by Korendian aliens (from the Korendor system), who took skin and blood samples from him. He insists that aliens look like humans as opposed to the notion in pop culture that they're little green men. His most notable song, "Salame", refers to the salutation of the Korendian race. David has attended a weekly UFO meeting in Costa Mesa, California.

He is vocal about his abstinence from smoking, alcohol, drugs and his dislike of rap music— but other parts of his life, especially since his arrival in Hollywood in 1976, are less clear. In interviews he revealed that he served as a cook in the Navy at one point in his life. Hart divorced his wife in 1994.[citation needed]
