Learn the Art of Ventriloquism
This book is all about ventriloquism, how to do it, the techniques of voice manipulation, and creating the illusion of throwing your voice. I have included a bit of history of the art form and its earliest practitioners. There is a personal section, a chapter of my beginnings and first attempts at building puppets.
In addition, there is anecdotal material covering my more-than-fifty years as a performing artist. There is a complete section detailing puppet construction, and it offers a woodcarving course, with complete details showing the process of dummy building. Included are useful tips on performance, script writing, puppet manipulation, and stagecraft.
