Todd Oliver Visits The Ventriloquist Central Collection


If you don’t know who Todd Oliver is then you have been living under a rock. Todd has been a mainstay of Branson Missouri and then was one of the runner ups on America’s Got Talent and now he is touring the country with his great Vent Act. Yes he is the fellow who uses Irving the dog. Simply outstanding. He is one of the best ventriloquists performing today.

Todd contacted me because he will be performing in Springfield, MA and then he will be in Keene, New Hampshire. We worked out the right time for him and I was happy to spend a few hours with him showing the collection.

Enjoy the pictures of Todd trying out some of the figures in the Ventriloquist Central Collection.



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:
