"Hi Rob, I performed at some local primary schools (for free) to showcase my skills and practice my show. I handed out cards to all the kids and this led to a number of party bookings & fairs. Puppetry is only the major skill...then comes…"
I am a younger vent, and though I try to advertise by posting business cards around my area, I'm afraid that people just don't take me seriously or don't notice. I have had experience performing in front of an audience, and have been working at ventriloquism for quite some time now. Any suggestions on how to take my act to the next level?
I went to Virginia Beach with my friend, and saw an amazing ventriloquist there. Once I got home I made a dummy for myself and it's been all up from there.
My Puppetry (or Puppet) Hero
Hard to answer. There are two I just can't choose between. There is Edger Bergen, who made ventriloquism what it is today, and Jim Henson, who changed puppetry forever. So, I guess it's a tie.
If I Were a Puppet, I'd Be...
Oh, a muppet! No competition! They always seem so goofy and fun, like nothing puts them down!
More About Me:
Well, I am a ventriloquist and love to act. Spencer, my main puppet, is a teenage frog who has a crush on Katy Perry and eats far to much junk food. My other puppet, Melvin, is a super sweet manatee who really has no idea what's going on. And then there's Renaldo (Wren for short), who is a tennis ball with far to much attitude. I love them, but they can drive me crazy!
I do a one man show, "Rob's: I'm Just Here for the Cookies."
