Mystery Ventriloquist, This Should Be Easy

mysteryvent 042911

Here’s the latest mystery ventriloquist. I do have a confession. I’m sure this one will be an easy one for most, but when my partner Steve sent me this picture, I had no idea who it was (apologies to the mystery ventriloquist).

When I found out, I was floored. So, since this may be an easy mystery ventriloquist for some, please name the Frank Marshall figure he’s holding as well.



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.

    The mystery VENTriloquist is Bob Isaacson and Speedy Wheeler.
    It is quite possible that Bob was performing under the stage name
    of Robert Royal when this photo was taken…

    I think that’s Lee Dean. But I have no idea what the figure’s name is. It’s not Kriket. How about an “E” for effort?

  4. Philip Grecian says:

    That’s Bob Isaacson? Okay. We both live in the same state. He doesn’t look like that in my head. I feel such a fool.

      Are you Philip Grecian of ‘its a wonderful life’ radio manuscript? I am tying to get rights to do that play here in Canada. Can you please help me with this?
