Relationship to Puppetry
Doctor of Laughology Programs are "very puppet heavy". Actually he's not heavy, he's my puppet. Programs range from Alcoholism is not a Laughing Matter to birthday parties from 1 to 101. I learned under the guidance of Emiline Dobbins doing mall shows in the 70's. My puppets range from creations with "Duct Tape" and other things found at Wal-mart to traditional ventriloquist figures.
