Ventriloquists

As some of you may now, I’m a real fan of ventriloquists and I think they’re one of the world’s most talented people. I’m sure you got an email with the video or at least a link to it on YouTube, Jeff Dunham’s ventriloquism act, Achmed The Dead Terrorist. Ever since I saw the clip, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on more – so much so that I eventually scoured places in South Africa to buy his DVDs and ended up ordering them from the US. If you’ve not seen any of his acts yet, do yourself a favour and go take a look.

Another brilliant, new comer (even though he’s been doing this for about 20 years already) ventriloquist, is Terry Fator. I just came across some of his clips on YouTube. He won last year’s America’s Got Talent and if you take a look at some of his clips you’ll see this man is well deserving of the one million dollare prize money.

Terry Fator is releasing  his new book called “Who’s the Dummy Now” – thanks Warren.
