Ventriloquist Ed Thomas & Hugo "Out of Retirement Tour"

Ed Thomas, a regular contributor to Ventriloquist Central, sent us this email and article:

Hi Everybody:

I wanted to show you an article about Hugo and me by Julia Coleman for the hi-gloss. CITY MAGAZINE that is published six times a year and sent to 50,000 homes here in Central Florida.

Last year the Ed Thomas & Hugo “Out of Retirement Tour” appeared in five states from Maine to Florida. Our fun packed 45 minute act performed primarily for 55+ communities. We did however head line in comedy clubs and church functions.

Remember, you don’t stop laughing because you are getting old, you get old because you stop laughing.

Ed and Hugo

    Hugo is a fine looking figure, old by shape of hands, do you know who is the maker?
