Lately I found some great YouTube videos of ventriloquist, singer and songwriter, Gary Willner.
Gary Willner has performed as a singer and ventriloquist all over the world and has appeared on national television many times. Famous impresario John Hammond once said of Gary’s voice, “Gary has one of the best sets of pipes I’ve ever heard!” In the 1970s Gary and his brother had a writer’s contract with Chappell Music Publishing Company, writing songs for other artists. Gary continues to sing and write songs and his album “Is it Sinatra?” is available now. Gary is in the process of recording an album of all original songs and will be available soon!
Gary has opened as a ventriloquist for stars such as Don Rickles, Robert Klein, Joel Grey, Debbie Reynolds, and Alan King, to mention a few. Gary has appeared on many national television shows such as The Tonight Show, The Statler Brothers Show, The Charles Grodin Show, Into the Night Starring Rick Dees, Robert Klein Time. Gary is presently working in comedy clubs and doing personal appearances.
Check out this video of Gary using his Nat King Cole and Frank Sinatra figures.
As you can see, Gary is an amazing talent. You have to check out his other videos where he really shows off his singing talents.
As an extra bit of information, the master ventriloquist figure builder, Ray Guyll, built Gary’s Nat King Cole and Frank Sinatra as well as some of his other figures.
Gary’s new album of 14 Sinatra classics is available now. Gary sings these Sinatra standards in the style that made “old blue eyes” a legend.
I’m sure you’ll agree, that Gary Willner is an amazing and talented person.
