Lloyd Burr's anarchic interview with 'a bit randy' puppet Randy Feltface

AM stand-in host Lloyd Burr has had an anarchic run-in with a purple puppet - comedian Randy Feltface - during an interview on Tuesday's show.

The Australian puppet comedian is in New Zealand as part of a comedy tour, taking his Feltopia show for Kiwis to enjoy around the motu. The puppet has previously enjoyed international success, being nominated for best comedy at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, playing sold-out seasons in London and New York, and featuring several times at the Montreal Just For Laughs Festival.

During the interview, Burr asked Feltface if he was a "rude Australian" - and if he was "a bit randy".

"I don't think I'm any more foul-mouthed than any other comedian on the circuit," the googly-eyed purple puppet told Burr.

"I think it's just that I look disarmingly child-friendly and I'm not - don't bring the children," he warned.

"I don't think I'm any more controversial than anyone else out there."

Parts of the tour have already sold out, with Feltface revealing he's already had to add a show in Auckland - but other tour stops are proving a little trickier.

"Nelson, don't wanna see it - what's happening in Nelson that's more important than my face?" Feltface asked, to which Burr replied: "Well in Nelson, it's maybe just young families or people who go there to spend the last years of their lives."

Burr also asked Feltface how long he had been working the stand-up circuit.

"Eighteen years," came the reply, before Burr said cheekily: "That's a long time to have the same person up your bum."

"That's a strange question for this time of the morning," was Feltface's reply.
