Dan Horn Ventriloquist Extrodinaire

I must admit that I watch way too much ventriloquism but hey it is what I love and since I don’t perform I love to watch. One of my favorite ventriloquists is Dan Horn. He is one of the regulars at the VentHaven ConVENTion and is known by most everyone who attends but there are a lot of folks out there who read this blog that have not seen Dan perform and I thought it would be apropos to show you some of his work here on Ventriloquist Central.

Dan Horn and Orson

Here is a video from 1988 so he is using his original Orson figure which I just loved. It was kind of crude compared to Dan’s current Orson but I just liked his look.

Dan uses soft figures but for me this guy is so talented with his manipulation as well as his great voice control that I overlook that the figure isn’t wooden. You know I just love the hard figures.

Anyway take a look at this older video of Dan and enjoy. Then you can Google him and look at other videos he has on the web and I am sure you all will agree with me that Dan is one of the best ventriloquist in the world today!!

    Nothing but respect do I have for him as he makes a living from a lost art.

    Dan Horn is one of the most technically proficient vents out there today. Nobody can bring an old man to life like Dan Horn. He is simply one of the best period. No, he doesn’t have Comedy Central specials, but order his DVD and you won’t be able to stop laughing.

    I have his DVD and he is the best. He works mostly cruise ships, and I am sure he works all the time. He is technically the best I have ever seen, and he is very funny.

    I agree with all of the above, but would like to add that he is one of the nicest guys you can meet. At the convention he always remembered my name and struck up converstations when ever we say each other. He simply is the best!
