India Ventriloquist Figure Maker K. S. Gode

I was contacted back a few days ago by K.S. Gode about a get together that took place in India.

Over the years I have owned and sold a number of Mr Gode’s figures and I also had the pleasure of meeting and sharing some time with him at the Vent Haven ConVENTion about 5 years ago.

We had a great time sharing stories and talking about vent figures. I was privy to go to Mr. Gode’s hotel room where he had half a dozen figure heads with him. He constructs figures in the Len Insull manner and they are very nice especially for the money he charges.

Here is his email and pictures to me:

It is a nice surprise that you remember me. In India there were only 4 ventriloquists 40 years ago. I built 407 vent figures and created 300 ventriloquists. 1st Ventriloquism festival in India was arranged in Hyderabad (South India) on 23rd December 2012 where I was facilitated. If you could share this news in your blog I will send you pictures.

Thanks and regards,

    Proud of Mr K S Gode sir, there are very few puppet builders who make Leonard Insull type vent figures.
