Ventriloquist Bob Abdou’s Special Visit

Bob Abdou, also known as Mr. Puppet, made a trek north from Texas this past week and ended his trip with 2 days at my home here in the Boston Area.

Bob told me he has been in Boston previously about 8 years ago when he performed in Danvers MA, but had not been back since. It was my and Helen’s pleasure to have him come and spend some time here with us and it was especially fun because he was here with his wife June, a wonderful woman, and it was his birthday as well. We all had a great time and celebrated the whole weekend.

Bob is a very talented performer and treated me and Helen and Jason, my son, to some wonderful ventriloquism using some of the figures in my collection. He was able to bring life to a few figures and believe me I think they were very happy because they had no spoken for quite a few years.

Thanks Bob for coming and making such a wonderful weekend happen.

By the way, Bob is one of the owners of Ventriloquist Central’s Frank Marshall Nosey Style Replica figures and I was able to do a video of him using the figure and thought you all would like to see it so take a look!!
