Someone recently sent me a link to the list of ventriloquists on Wikipedia and asked why I wasn't listed.

I have no clue.

At one time someone had added me, and apparently someone else removed my name. The Wikipedia list includes names of people who are not ventriloquists, several amateurs and some who no longer perform.

So I felt it was time to put up a list of ventriloquists that I have.


IMPORTANT – Just because a ventriloquist is on this list does not mean they are recommended for performances. Some people on this list are amateurs or beginners who have only done a few shows. If you are searching for a ventriloquist for your event, please contact our office for assistance.
