Ventriloquist Central W.S. Berger Award


Last year at the 2012 Vent Haven ConVENTion, Mark Wade presented the W.S. Berger Award to Steve and me for our Ventriloquist Central website. Unfortunately, Steve was unable to attend that year.

Our Ventriloquist Central Birthday Bash was the first time since the award that Steve and I have been together so we decided to take the opportunity and have a nice picture taken with both of us and our awards.

We are both humbled and proud of this award. Special thanks to Mark for giving this honor to us.



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:
