I am hoping someone might be able to help me. A while back on Ebay, there was someone selling a video of a ventriloquist show filmed in Los Angeles in 1979. On the bill for the night was a gentleman who performed with a mechanical acrobat name Ioni. I wrote to the gentleman and he confirmed it was Ioni. So I thought I will bid on this tape....well, I forgot and the auction ended. So, I am now looking for a copy of this show. I thought maybe someone on this forum might know where I might buy a copy.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

I suggest contacting Frego at:

He has the most extensive collection I've seen. He may know where you can get a copy.

Good luck,

Here is information on that particular HBO special from 1979. I had several special friends who performed(Stu Scott and Jay Nemeth both fellow Las Vegans). This show was quite memorable for me since it contained a tribute to Bergen(whose final performance I attended) I have a VHS master tape from that show in storage. I'm not sure who has it for sale. Hope this helps.

Also try Lee Cornell's site. I know he sells various Ventriloquist videos. If he does not have it, he should be able to tell you how to get it.

Good Luck!!

Many thanks to both of you!! Thank you Tom and thank you Duane.
Duane, what you wrote is exactly how the listing on Ebay read so I know it is the one I am looking for.
I truly appreciate the help!
