Ventriloquism Help in Australia

I received this email a few days ago from Phil Merto in Australia asking for help with ventriloquism:

Hi Dan,

I have had a Gerry Gee Jr Doll from the age of about 9 Years,and can throw my voice a bit. I’m now 58 years almost retired and would like to meet with other people with more practice than I.

Would love one day to do a show for sick or disabled children. A missed opportunity years ago. Can you give me any contact numbers.

I could even help someone else. Thanks for the reply.

Phil Merto

So, if any of our Aussie friends would like to help Phil out, I’m sure he would appreciate it very much.

    I spent the vast majority of the 2008 conVENTion palling around with Colin Williams from Australia, who i met in the registration line. Sorry i don’t have contact info, as i’ve sadly lost touch with him, but he was also a friend of ron blaskett who owned gerry gee. Colin is one of the very nicest people i’ve met in my entire life, & i was honored to share his first conVENTion in his company.
