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:

One Response to Ventriloquist Central Collection Video Series – Bill Podgorny’s “Albert”

  1. Lee Dean says:

    It is a shame there’s nothing about the maker other than he was 20-30 and worked an old Capitol movie theater. Perhaps there is something some place, inside the head, arms or legs, to throw some light on his influences, other than Bergen. He is bound to have seen inside the head of one made by another because the jaw action is too good. The hands on the figures are similar, so I’d say he made a lot of them. His figures would be very recognizable as a Harold Hines figure.
