Tidbits in a Minute


Bob Abdou sent us this email about his “Tidbit in a Minute” videos:

Hey Dan and Steve,

I know it’s been a while since I made a Tidbit in a Minute. My summer
schedule is the best ever. I have 120 shows booked from May to August. Plus I just signed a contract to work with Officer Phil for 2014/2015. That adds another 300 plus elementary school shows to my schedule.

I have enjoyed making the Tidbits in a Minute and plan on doing more. I have 3 in the works and plan on sending some out in august.

While performing in Lakeway Texas I had a mother come up to me and say that her family enjoyed my Tidbits in a Minute. It startled me a bit because I thought only ventriloquists would watch the videos? Well, her son received a vent dummy for Christmas (see photo) and wanted to learn how to use him and they found my videos and thanked me in person. That made me feel extra special (there is a lot of work that goes into making these videos plus my hairdresser’s expense). Knowing that others outside the vent community know about Ventriloquist Central and my videos assures me that the art of ventriloquism is just strong as ever

Below is another email just received about my Tidbits in a Minute. This
email assured me that others are learning from my experience of performing almost 6,000 shows since 1996 isn’t going to waste.
This new ventriloquist is named Win. With a name like that, how can he


Dear Bob

My name is Winfield Pipher I am new to Ventriloquism I attended my first
convention in 2013 it was great wonderful people lectures the dealers room etc.

I am E-mailing you to thank you I came across your Tidbits in a Minute and they have been very helpful I have enjoyed all of them and I hope you will be making more of them Oh by the way I located the two Milton Berle joke books online got them both for under ten dollars not bad.

I’m sure you are pretty busy getting ready for the convention I am not
going this year but plan to go in 2015 hope to see you there next year.

Thank you

Win Pipher
