REPLAY – Ventriloquist Central Interviews Bob Abdou

Last week we had an incredible interview with Bob Abdou (AKA Mr. Puppet). If you missed it, you are in for a real treat.

Bob gave out so much useful information that this is a MUST listen for everyone. In fact, even if you did here the interview, I suggest you listen again and this time take lots of notes.

Here’s the replay of Bob Abdou’s interview:

Here is an email we received from George Boosey about the interview:


It was great. I just lurked and laughed. Dan, Steve, thanks for scheduling this one.

And, Bob, when you talked about the disappointment you feel when others steal your material, I thought about how Johnny Main refused to perform during the last decade or so of his life at the convention just because of that. I was sitting with him one night in the hospitality suite and he asked to hold someone’s dummy and was playing around with it when someone pulled out a pocket recorder to try and record it and Johnny put the puppet down immediately and walked away.

Pete, thanks for calling in and taking the show to its end. As we all know, a good strong ending leaves everyone feeling good about the show!
— George..
