Lucky Charlie Is Completed

It was a long road to bring Lucky Charlie back to life but just before the Ventriloquist Central Birthday Bash he was completed. I waited before showcasing him on the Ventriloquist Central Collection page because I wanted the attendees to the Birthday Bash to have first viewing of this incredible carving from the Master Frank Marshall.

The figure stands 40″ tall and he has the following functions, slot jaw, winker / blinkers rolling eyes, smoker and spitter. Everything is back to fully functional.

From the research I have done it appears that this was the only figure Frank carved like this. Blowing up the photograph shows that every line in the face in the picture matches with every line in this head.


He certainly is a prize and I am happy he is in the Ventriloquist Central Collection and also happy to share him with you.

Ventriloquist Central is the brainchild of Dan Willinger and Steve Hurst. Dan is a ventriloquism enthusiast and ventriloquist figure collector. He has been collecting for over 25 years. He created the Ventriloquist Central Collection. It now has over 100 ventriloquist figures and over 50 of them are Frank Marshall figures. Steve is a ventriloquist as well as builder of ventriloquist figures. He also has a background in sales, marketing, building websites and computers. Because they both love the art of ventriloquism, the website Ventriloquist Central was born. For more information about the website, go to:
