Bob Abdou – Heart and Soul of a Dummy's Voice


A regular contributor to Ventriloquist Central, Bob Abdou, had a great article on the front page of “The Stateman” in Austin, TX. It also has a wonderful video of Bob and explaining his craft.

I have to say that this is one of the better articles that I have seen, so if you haven’t read it yet, please do.

    Hey Dan & Steve,
    thank you soooo much for posting my story, but the best part is that the website doesn’t do justice, I am actually on the FRONT page and better yet,
    ABOVE THE FOLD, I was told, you can’t get better than above the fold on the front page!! It was a very good day yesterday, thanks again

    As an old newspaperman (Arkansas Gazette from 1065-71; United Press International from 1971-1084), I can tell you, Bob, that Page 1 above the fold is the best. Way to go!
