Mystery Ventriloquist


We haven’t had a mystery ventriloquist for some time….so can you guess this mystery vent?




Dan Willinger 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. Because of his love for the art of ventriloquism, Mr. Willinger created the website Ventriloquist Central.

  1. That’s Eddie Garson who just passed away about 6 months ago. Eddie and Chico Chico worked in Miami Beach in its heyday of production shows. A few years ago, I was working as the Featured Specialty act in the Ice Show at the Marco Polo Hotel (Eddie worked in the same show for many years..)when Eddie came to see the show one night. He was very complimentary of my act and we spent hours talking and swapping show-biz stories. He also was a musician and even wrote a Broadway play about a ventriloquist.

    … I think the figure is a Marshall so if the vent is gone, I can only think of one place where that figure is now on display with other Marshall figures. :)

    Of course I’m only guessing :)

    Reminds me much of Bob Isaacson figures by Marshall, one of which I think he sold
