Ventriloquist Central Faithful,
When we (Steve, my webmaster and I) started Ventriloquist
Central our goal was to share any and all information dealing
with the Art of Ventriloquism. In the beginning it was mainly
my ventriloquist dummy collection and some historical
That was two and half years ago and we’ve come a long way since
then. We’ve added much more content, including more pictures,
audios, videos and we have plans to add innovative ways to
bring you even more information with cutting edge technology.
Ventriloquist Central just keeps growing and growing.
It’s you the faithful that are making it possible. Without
your loyalty, sharing your help, information and ideas….this
could never happen.
However, there is a price to pay for all this. Steve and I never
thought that Ventriloquist Central would be the size it is today
(and as I stated it’s still growing). In fact, at
times it feels like a full time job.
Now don’t take that wrong, we enjoy providing you with
information on the website but it can be very time consuming.
Here’s Something For
Both Steve and I
own quite a lot of historical ventriloquial information
which consists of books, pictures, periodicals,
brochures and advertisements….some of this information is from
the 20’s to the 50’s. All of this information has been legally
attained and the copyrights have expired.
We decided to pool our information
and created, “The Ventriloquism Historical Information
Collection, Volume 1.”
We painstakingly went through all this information, compiled it
together and created an historical information collection that I’m sure you’ll want.
"Just wanted to let
you and Dan know that I really enjoyed the
Historical Guide/Book that you guys published. It
was really a joy to read, and very interesting. I
really enjoyed some of the great pictures included."
Dan Leighly 'MontanaDan'
"I am really happy
to have the Historical project. It is truly amazing.
I will really enjoy going through it -- often."
Here’s what inside this informational collection:
Books – There are some wonderfully old “how to” books in
this collection such as, how to do ventriloquism and how to
make a dummy. It’s great to see how they
approached the art of ventriloquism and to see their dummy
Advertisements – Some great brochures and advertisements
from the vaudeville days up to the 50’s. It’s interesting to
see how the ventriloquists of the past marketed
themselves. As a side note, some of these methods are so good
that they could be used today.
– We also have a few pictures that in this book. Some you may
have seen but there might be one or two that you’ve
Bonus, we are also including two issues of “Double Talk.”
Double Talk was a periodical for ventriloquists put out by
Revello Petee in the 30’s. This was before the “Grapevine” or
“The Oracle”. One of the issues we’ve included is
actually the VERY FIRST Double Talk.
All in all there are
22 different items making up the 130 pages in this
historical informational collection. If you were to buy each individual item off of eBay or
some dealer, the minimum you would pay for each of these items
would $5.00 (and in some cases, probably more). Using this
yardstick, all this information would cost you a minimum of $110.00 if you
were to go out and buy each item separately.
We've taken all this information, made it into a pdf collection
and put it on a CD so you can access it any time you want.
Because we appreciate all your support for the Ventriloquist
Central website, we are
going to offer “The Ventriloquism Historical Information
Collection, Volume 1” on a CD for only $19.95 (plus
shipping & handling). That is a bargain.
