Ventriloquist figure builder James Manalli is carving basswood ventriloquist figures and is in fact taking orders. His very first figure he decided he wanted to become part of the Ventriloquist Central Collection.

He sent me an email to let us know he now has a website. Here’s his email:

Hi Dan,

I just wanted to let you know I now have a website.

Thank you,
James Manalli

Ventriloquist Central is the brainchild of Dan Willinger and Steve Hurst. Dan is a ventriloquism enthusiast and ventriloquist figure collector. He has been collecting for over 25 years. He created the Ventriloquist Central Collection. It now has over 100 ventriloquist figures and over 50 of them are Frank Marshall figures. Steve is a ventriloquist as well as builder of ventriloquist figures. He also has a background in sales, marketing, building websites and computers. Because they both love the art of ventriloquism, the website Ventriloquist Central was born. For more information about the website, go to:
