Edgar Bergen became famous as a ventriloquist on the radio. On the radio? How can that even be possible? You can't even see if they are moving their lips.
It turns out, that wasn't even an issue. Edgar's characters were so defined they became personalities in their own right. People tuned in to hear the interaction between Edgar Bergen and Charlie McCarthy. Or Edgar and Mortimer Snerd,or even Mortimer and Charlie. They liked the characters and didn't care that it was Edgar doing the talking.
That is the powerful skill of a seasoned ventriloquist. The ability to help people suspend their reality and accept the imaginary, even if just for awhile.
It has been a long time since there has been a ventriloquist on the radio, but now there are three.
Today, Maher Ventriloquist Studios launches the new “Maher Ventriloquist Radio.”
