Ventriloquist David Turner Performing

Ventriloquist David Turner

I met a lot of people this past summer at the Vent Haven ConVENTion. One such person was Troy Anderson and his family. Troy sent in this great video with clips of ventriloquist David Turner performing along with this email:

“My wife & I got a chance to catch David Turner performing at the Wilson County Fair just east of Nashville, this summer. It was fun visiting with David and his wife between sets. I shot some video of his performance. Unfortunately they had a large speaker near his performance area that always seemed to announce The Gunfight At The O.K Corral will start blah blah blah . . right on one of his punchlines or a poignant moment in a song, not to mention the rock band across the way. Like a true pro David didn’t skip a beat. I put together a short montage of clips minus the announcements. We were very impressed. He is a talented guy. Not only does he build his own figures & have a great singing voice, but just watch the lip control.”

After you watch this video I’m sure you’ll agree that David is indeed a very talented guy. On a personal note, I especially liked the figure that David carved and had at the ConVENTion (pictured above).

Thanks Troy for sharing.
