What’s the old saying….”time flies when you’re having fun”, well that is exactly what’s happened here.

Hard to believe it’s been 6 years since my partner Steve and I started the Ventriloquist Central website.

This past year is especially memorable with the receiving of the W.S. Berger Awards for both of us. Very high praise indeed and we are very honored.

(This years ConVENTion will always have a very special place in my heart because Steve and I were honored by Mark ” He’s A Great Man” Wade. While I was on the stage to accept the award for me and for Steve, David Crone, the photographer for the ConVENTion , was right in front of me snapping the pictures. Afterwards I asked Dave if it would be possible to have that picture of me receiving the award from Mark and with the permission of Annie Roberts, Dave sent me this shot so I just had to share it with all of you. I think it is great.)

Lots has happened over the past 6 years and we have more in store. So Happy Birthday to Ventriloquist Central and thanks to all of you for your support!
