Ventriloquist Figure Maker, Dan Payes – The Marriage Ref

One of the hardest working ventriloquist figure builders today is Dan Payes. Dan is one of the few that can actually say that building figures is the way he earns his living. It is not a part time job but a full time service that he offers.

Today Dan not only build for us common folk but he has a cast of pro vents that he is building figures for as well.

It seems his figures will once again be showcased on a national network television show this Thursday, April 1st, on the show called The Marriage Ref.

Check out the video below.




I know I will be watching how about you?!
