Our Next Performance
Radio and early Television was the golden age of American
ventriloquism. Performers such as Edgar Bergen with Charlie
McCarthy, Paul Winchell with Jerry Mahoney,
and Shari Lewis with Lamb Chop were staples of the airwaves.
Now there is a vent rebirth.
In America we’ve got Jeff Dunham, Terry Fator and Ronn Lucas.
In England, Australia & New Zealand
there are Nina Conti and David Strassman.
Come and explore the fascinating world of Ventriloquism.
(And don’t worry, we’re leaving the scary ones locked tightly
in their suitcases.)
