Ventriloquist Central Birthday Bash Overview


I just can’t believe that the Ventriloquist Central Birthday Bash is already done and passed. It was a wonderful time and I know my sweetheart Helen was watching and was happy to see how well everything went. She was an integral part of the Bash and I did everything for the event the way she wanted.

We had folks that came from as far away as Romania and Canada. All of the attendees made the trip to my house to see the Ventriloquist Central Collection and had a ball taking pictures and videos of all the figures on display.

After the viewing the collection the bus shuttled all of the attendees to a nice little Italian restaurant named Massimo’s for us to enjoy a group luncheon of authentic northern Italian cuisine .

After lunch the bus again shuttled everyone back to the Hyatt Place Medford and we had a complete afternoon of lectures and open mike session. we broke for supper and then everyone returned for the evening entertainment which consisted of Mr Dead Guy aka David Deneen, then David Pendleton and Mac Elroy his original McElroy figure and we ended the evening with the Funniest Al Getler you ever could possibly see.

It was a sublime event and you really don’t want to miss this the next time!!!

P.S. If you don’t believe me…..ask anyone who was there……..

    Boy, my son, Stephen, and I really wish we were there. We had planned on it, but then I started a new job and couldn’t get off. Sounds like a great entertaining and learning experience.
