Jeff: There's a stigma against ventriloquists and there's no denying it. When someone says ventriloquist …if they haven't seen a good one they're going to think negative thoughts, they're going to go … Oh, great … not a ventriloquist. Let's face it, it's a very strange way of entertaining people. Think about it for a minute … It's what everybody says … You're talking to yourself. You're reacting to yourself. And that's not quite normal.
