MIKE IS THE VENTRILOQUIST
The Human Ventriloquist Figure: A Crowd Pleasing Favorite!
Mike learned his art by checking books out of the library on ventriloquism and then spending thousands of hours practicing. He has always been fascinated by ventriloquists who weave comedy into routines while conversing with their different figures. The technique is to become two different actors. Then while changing the voice to sound unlike your own, controlling the movements of the puppet. Memorizing lines takes lots of rehearsal while ad-libbing is the icing on the cake in a performance. Many times the ventriloquist can tease audience members, the company president, or CEO for extra laughs.
He has studied the art of puppetry for over 20 years. He began with hand puppets or "Muppet Type Puppets" and moved gradually into ventriloquism. He now is an accomplished ventriloquist with many varied comical routines, but is also proficient at adlibbing.
MIKE'S INFLUENCES are Ron Lucas, Jeff Dunham, Todd Oliver, Willie Tyler, and Jay Johnson.
The BIG Baby is always a hit!
