Ventriloquism Is Child’s Play

FORT MITCHELL, Kent. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Ventriloquism may sound challenging, but it’s actually child’s play.

That’s according to Mark Wade, Executive Director of the 33rd Annual Vent Haven ConVENTion, which brings 450 of the world’s best ventriloquists to Fort Mitchell, Kentucky, tomorrow (Jul. 16) through Saturday (Jul. 19).

Anybody who can speak can become versed in ventriloquism, but kids have a built-in advantage.

He says, “Kids are great because they have natural creativity. We lose the imagination factor the older we get, but kids haven’t been around enough to have been told ‘No.’”

While the convention features a ventriloquism performance from America’s Got Talent’s 2007 champ, Terry Fator, it’s still easy for voice-throwing tots to steal the show.

Wade says, “We have a six-year-old who’s great. And there are no stage parents, so they can perform without being pressured.”
