Great Ventriloquist Dennis Spicer Figure Revealed

you tube ventriloquist dennis spicer

Back in January we posted a blog with a video of ventriloquist Dennis Spicer and an interesting looking figure (click here to see the blog). I asked for information about the figure and Dennis’ sister Rose sent us the following information:

The ‘dummy’ here is Kenny Baker who played R2D2 in Starwars. This was just one of the dummies used on the Royal Command Performance 1964 – if you watch to the end you will see that Dennis bows to the audience and to the Queen and whistles to Kenny who gets up from the chair he was left on and ran off the stage with Dennis. I know this as a fact as I am proud to be his sister. Thank you for your interest in my very talented brother.

Thanks Rose for sending this in to us.
