Impressionist Creates Act I ‘Hamilton: A Muppet Musical’ Parody. Comedian and impressionist, Ricky Downes III, became inspired to create a Muppets parody of Hamilton after watching the famed musical after its debut on Disney+ at the beginning of July.
Less than 4 days after the films launch on Disney+, Ricky shared his creation via YouTube and Twitter along with the caption: “Hey [Lin-Manuel Miranda] and [Kermit the Frog], I was so inspired by [Hamilton] on Disney+ I recorded Act 1 as all of The Muppets. You BOTH are truly the most sensational, inspirational, celebration, Muppetational AND non-stop!”
