A Master Ventriloquist And His Other Interest

It is fair to say that everyone has interests and they are usually a far cry from what we do for an occupation. Sometimes it is fishing or hunting or archery, playing chess … well you get the idea.

So how about someone that is a full time ventriloquist as a profession. What kind of interest would you suppose a ventriloquist would have to occupy his free time away from the bustle of show business?

Well our friend and donator to Ventriloquist Central, Lee Dean, sent in this wonderful link to a site all about Steam Engines. And to my surprise when I went there they were talking about none other than ventriloquist Edgar Bergen.

Did you know he loved steam engines? He even performed at steam engine meetings. There is a picture of him with another enthusiast in front of a giant steam engine.

So here is proof that everyone does in fact have interests outside of their own profession.

Thanks Lee for this very informative link.
