Another Update from Tom Crowl – Ventriloquist ConVENTion

From Tom Crowl

This morning Ken Groves gave his “Breaking Down The Brick Walls of Showbusiness” lecture. Ken brought out his puppet George and showed the audience exactly why they should take his advice, he’s one of the best you will see! Excellent advice on everything from creating the illusion of ventriloquism to setting up the room for a successful show. Following the Q & A session, Ken offered his book and DVD for sale – he sold out and was taking orders. His book is available on-line through Lee Cornell.

Following a quick break, Tim & Amanda Cowles presented a lecture where they discussed everything from show transitions and music to sound systems and microphones. They used several segments from their educational school assemblies and it was a fun presentation that seemed to go by too quickly. The dealer rooms opened and everyone hit the restuarant – so I took off for a great lunch with David Crone. The amount of information being shared here floors me – I can’t believe I didn’t attend this convention sooner.

This afternoon we’ve got open mics – then tonight – Terry Fator!

Terry Fator was at the Junior Open Mic. MC’d by Bob Hamill – kids did a great job.

Thanks, Tom…..
