I have been asked to lecture at this years Ventarama convention on “Beginning Ventriloquism” I’m very excited and it’s going to be a great day. Beginners often ask me who is my favourite ventriloquist and as with most things it tends to be the ones you grew up with. The other question is about what sort of “figure” is the best? Well the answer to the first question is Ray Alan, with Shari Lewis coming a close second which kind of answers the second question with, there is no best figure. Ray used an expensive traditional “Doll” an Shari, well she used a sock!
