A few days ago I showed you a video of John Schaibley’s date books (click here to see that video).

Here’s a video showing John Schaibley’s first ventriloquist figure built by Louis Grannat. He purchased this figure sometime around 1915 when he was a lad of about 15. He of course went on to use both Mack and Marshall figures but this was his first.

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:
