Ventriloquist Roy Langer


We received the following email this week:

I wanted to write and let you know that my dad, Roy Langer, passed away August 28, 2015. He was the winner of Paul Winchell’s “Best Young Ventriloquist in America” in 1952 and Edgar Bergan’s “Best Kid Ventriloquist in NY”. He went on to co-host The Horn and Hardart Children’s hour on NBC for 12 years. He continued using ventriloquism in his profession as a speech and media consultant.

He loved your blog and was an avid collector of figures as well, so I wanted to write to you and let you know.

Amy Langer Schwartz

Amy, thanks for letting us know. We are sorry for your loss.



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:
