Great Pictures of Ventriloquist Figure Builder, Brian Hamilton


As you know I’m a fan of ventriloquist figure Brian Hamilton and his figures, a few I have in the Ventriloquist Central Collection.

Here are some pictures and an email from Brian’s brother, Todd:

Hi Dan,

The first photo (pictured above) is of Brian at Christmas when he received his first REAL ventriloquists figure head. This was Roger and Brian was absolutely floored by the gift, it was quite expensive and you can see the “howdy doody” in the lower right hand corner which is what we were accustomed to playing with if we did not actually make our own puppets.

The other two photos are a few years later of Brian at the Lane Technical High School (now Lane College Prep) in Chicago performing at the talent night, with Roger.

Hope you enjoy the photos.
