A Funny Story From Lee Dean

There are always stories to be told about events that happen to us all and one of the regular contributors here at Ventriloquist Central is Lee Dean. He sent in this funny story of a real happeneing to him and we wanted to share it with everyone.

I will tell you a story about me, Lee Dean, and the magician, John Moehring. At Six Flags we shared an apartment, and performed the three or more shows on first campus review. One night, after our shows we investigated a car that had been parked several days. It was in the middle of block, about a block away from apartment.

There we stood by the car when all of a sudden two blocks away came lights flashing, sirens sounding, cops jumping out, drawing their guns, and our hand went up and held high.

Cop shouted, “Who are you” Moehring said, “I’m a magician” and I replied, “And I’m a ventriloquist”.

Turned out it was a stakeout on a stolen vehicle gone awry.

Moehring was on Sullivan in 1966, and a past editor Magic Magazine, M.U.M.
