Mr Puppet Bob Abdou at Ventriloquist Central Collection


Bob Abdou spent the weekend at the Ventriloquist Central Collection and he told me he was just enamored with the Frank Marshall figure named Freckles

Bob did some great venting with Freckles and it was great to see him bring the figure to life. Carole Sylvester I am sure would have been happy to see him back in action.

I would have taken a video but unfortunately the camera was not available when the routine took place. I was so upset!!

We had a great time and it was my pleasure to play host to Bob and his wife June.

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:

  1. Freckles to me, has that ultimate look of a ventriloquist dummy. Thank you Dan for letting me do my routine with him!

    You had better do a dummy count now that he’s gone.
