Austin Phillips Visits Ventriloquist Central


Austin Phillips is one of the up and coming ventriloquist figure builders and today he made the trip down from Maine to visit with me and the Ventriloquist Central Collection.

Austin has restored a wonderful Len Insull figure and brought him so I could see his finished work. I supplied him with the hair to finish him off so it was great seeing his end result.

We had a great time!!

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:
