AdvertisementThe ancient art of ventriloquism: revered and feared, mystical and misunderstood, fantastical and fanatical, insert another clever alliteration here.
From the Oracle of Delphi to AGT, ventriloquism has seen and done it all. Come meet professional ventriloquist Karl Herlinger and learn the basics of ventriloquism. If you already know the basics, get more practice and insight. If you’re already a professional ventriloquist, come deliver your tribute and bow down to Master Herlinger who definitely did NOT write this introduction himself no sir. Ahem.
In this workshop, you will work. You will learn the proper techniques from a skilled performer, up close and personal. You will get personalized feedback and instruction. You will hear funny anecdotes that may potentially endear Karl to you if he doesn’t blow it. The workshop is an overview that covers breathing, lip control, figure manipulation, the best chocolate chip cookie recipe, presentation skills and staging, and how to build an act. With this foundation, anything is possible. Bar Mitzvahs! Birthday Parties! Cruises! Puppet Slams! Solitary Confinement! You will beat the “B.” You will attempt the “M.” You may even fight the “F” and win!
