What Ventriloquists do you have performance DVD's (or videos) of? Which ones do you like, or dislike and why? I've been collecting performance videos since I started and am always looking for something I don't have.

Again, this is directed at performance video - but if you'd like to recommend instructional I'm sure the information will help someone.

Hi Tom,

OFF TOPIC:

I was just wondering and maybe you would know...is Tillie the Troll used by Ronn Lucas the same as Bill DeMar's? Smile

No clue on that one Wanlu. Maybe you should e-mail Bill over at World Vents and get the info from him.

As I said, I collect them - so I'll share one to start:

I found David Morgan & Chucky earlier last month. David is not a ventriloquist and claims that - but his comedy and interaction with Chucky is priceless. The puppet's feet in his pants was worth the price of the DVD.

Again, not a ventriloquist - but his interaction and comedic timing is worth studying. You can find his DVD at: http://chuckytheduck.com/
(he's got video there too if you aren't interested in purchasing.)

Tom,

Thanks for the heads up on Chucky the Duck. Very funny! My vote goes for Spark of Insanity & Arguing with Myself by Jeff Dunham. Both very cheap on amazon....

Ken,
I agree that Jeff's DVDs are excellent. He is currently the most popular vent out there today and watching him work an audience is a real lesson.

Another DVD I recently purchased was Ian Varella's. I saw one offered on eBay and bid, but ended up going directly to Ian's site and getting it from him. He was extremely nice and shipped the DVD quickly. He is a pro who is worth watching.

Hey Tom Smile

Will you buy my DVD in the future? Smile

I doubt if you will pick up anything from me but I'll guarantee a laugh or two Smile

You will also learn two things...compassion and gratitude.

You'll feel sorry for me and you'll be grateful you're not me Smile Strassman

Wanlu -
When you offer a DVD let me know! I've found I learn something from all of them.

Strassman has two DVD's - do you have both? I found Strassman Live to be excellent. The Chuck You tour was good, but repeated bits of material from the first. The thing I like about Strassman is his interaction with the characters. They are extremely well defined, their voices are distinct and each becomes a believable entity. Plus he's very funny! I'd love to catch his live show.

Dan Horn also has an excellent DVD called "Stand-Up Ventriloquist." I got mine on his web site, danhorn.com. He is one of the best manipulators out there.

I also highly recommend "Paul Zerdin Live" from England. Great technique and very funny characters.

Bill Boley DVD's (available from Tom Ladshaw--contact him at gottleogeer@aol.com) are classic.

Jim Barber has some DVD's available which include interesting clips from his early career.

Marc Rubben has 3 DVD's available ranging from squeaky clean to his midnight show.

You can find most of these by going to their websites or googling their names.

And don't forget there are lots of vent clips on YouTube.

Happy hunting!

...and Russo Louis, if I'm not mistaken, is using just ONE figure--Brooklyn Birch-- in his whole, full-night shows!

What a great talent!

I'll second creativemac. My favorite two performance videos are both 'Russ Lewis'. One is his act on the Ed Sullivan show when he was around 20. It's great. His speed and timing were very impressive. The other is 'Wall to wall laughs'

Others I have are Dave Pendelton, Mark Thompson, Bill Boley, Bill DeMar, and Ronn Lucas - 'Who's in Charge'. That's my next favorite.
