If you don't know what that means, read up!

Ventriloquism is an act of stagecraft in which a person (a ventriloquist) manipulates his or her voice so that it appears that the voice is coming from elsewhere. The act of ventriloquist is ventriloquism.

In layman terms, its like talking without moving your mouth, that is to convince your audience that your puppet is actually talking, when you're making the sound.

I was greatly hooked on to ventriloquism, thanks to a certain individual, oh wait, 2 individuals actually, so much so that i really wanted to learn this art. Oh well, it takes time.

Anyway, about my 2 ventriloquist heroes, Terry Fator and Jeff Dunham.

Terry Fator, which impersonates singers, great singers such as Tony Bennett or even Louis Armstrong, usually connects with his audience with a singing piece. He was after all, the champion of the America's Got Talent 07' competition. And if you don't know what TV Program is that, heh, watch more TV.

Jeff Dunham, popular for his puppets, such as Walter, Peanut and Jose Jalapeno ( Pepper on a stick), does comical acts and jokes on stage. I loveLOVE Walter, a grumpy old man in his 50's who has a very very negative view of modern life. He always makes jokes about his wife too.

Here they are, starting with Terry Fator, singing, "At Last",

Just fantastic, how in the world he projects his voice that well, with his mouth shut?!

Jeff Dunham, the funky comedian,

There are more of his acts, featuring Walter,

Really, really entertaining.

Love em!
