Lester Marshall Mystery Ventriloquist

Mr. Rizek, aka “Lester Marshall”

We certainly get the comments every time we post a mystery ventriloquist and this past time was no exception.

Bob Isaacson , Les Lamborn and Joe Lopez all were correct with their guesses on this one. Mr Rizek was the performer and he renamed himself Lester Marshall taking both names from two of the greats of the time. The Great Lester and Frank Marshall.

Mr Rizek also had quite a collection of figures and even purchased figures from Frank Marshall and would resell them. He was also taught ventriloquism by Ray Conlin.

Previously I posted pictures of Ray Conlin and his Figure which was made by Marshall and now resides in the Ventriloquist Central Collection.
