Ventriloquist Edgar Bergen & Old Charlie McCarthy

Edgar Bergen was without question one of the greatest ventriloquists to ever perform ventriloquism and he was also a fantastic innovator. He was continually updating his act and finding new ways to appeal to all audiences.

I happened to come across this wonderful video of Mr Bergen and in it he introduces a beautiful young girl by the name of Candice and also introduces an old Charlie McCarthy. I always new that Old Charlie, as a figure existed, but I had never seen him being used so this was great to see.

I hope you all enjoy this as much as I did.
