The $martPath Creative Team is Recording New Videos Now!

We are working hard on a new set of $martPath puppet music videos, featuring some of your kids' favorite characters. The first video was released in late 2022, with new videos released each month through mid-2023! We'll add them here to this page as they premiere.

Meet Megan

At the age of ten, Megan Piphus was introduced to ventriloquism. In 2008, Megan was featured on the Oprah Winfrey program, "The World’s Smartest and Most Talented Kids".

Megan graduated valedictorian of her class at Princeton High School in Cincinnati in 2010, and her speech featuring her and her puppet, George, became a hit on YouTube. In 2012, Megan appeared on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno".

In June of 2013, Megan appeared on the NBC show, "America’s Got Talent". Then, in April of 2018, Megan appeared on FOX's "Showtime at the Apollo with Steve Harvey". Megan also found the time to earn a bachelor’s degree in Economics and master’s degree in Finance from
Vanderbilt University.

Megan joined the $martPath puppet project in 2017 and wrote all of the songs included in the videos. She also collaborated with Cincinnati music legend (and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer) Bootsy Collins, who produced two of the $martPath puppet songs.

Megan is also now the first Black female puppeteer on Sesame Street, performing as Gabrielle!
