Ventriloquist shows have risen in popularity thanks to a couple of very prominent entertainers.

Jeff Dunham draws huge ratings on Comedy Central. His act is listed as the top grossing touring comedian by Forbes Magazine. One of his tours even made the Guiness Book of World Records for most tickets sold.

Ventriloquist Terry Fator won America's Got Talent. He ended up signing the largest contract ever offered to a reality TV show contest winner. Now Terry headlines his own show, in his own theater, in Las Vegas.

Ventriloquist Paul Zerdin of the UK followed Terry's feat by winning America's Got Talent in 2015.

Ventriloquist Nina Conti has exploded on social media for her stage performances using the Human Puppet mask. (Little known fact – when Nina wanted to purchase a mask, she contacted Tom for information.)

While some may not realize it, ventriloquist shows have been around much longer than today's current crop of stars.

Other Famous Ventriloquists

Edgar Bergen became famous for his radio show, which made him one of the biggest stars of his day. Ventriloquist Paul Winchell had his own television program and voiced many popular cartoon characters. Ventriloquist Senor Wences was so popular on the Ed Sullivan Show that they named a street in New York after him. Ventriloquist Jimmy Nelson made the Nestle' Chocolate jingle famous. Shari Lewis entertained and educated children for generations with her puppet Lamb Chop.

If you have an audience of mixed age ranges, few things will appeal to them like a ventriloquist show. Although it may not be the first form of entertainment people think about, it will be remembered!
