The Ventriloquist Academy Launches
I'm thrilled to announce that my new website, The Ventriloquist Academy, launched this past Monday, July 23rd.
So far, subscriptions have been brisk. It's good to see even more people wanting to learn how to become a ventriloquist. My goal over the past 21 years has always been to try and help keep the art of vent alive and growing - by offering the best quality educational and entertaining materials I can to the ventriloquist community.
The Ventriloquism 101 website, which launched in 1997 with just my single VHS video - then added a DVD edition and other videos, CD's and books - has seen a drop in buyers in recent years. And I think that has to do with folks not wanting to purchase physical DVD's, CD's and books anymore.
Today, people want access to content immediately and they want to be able to access that content on computers, laptops, iPads and mobile devices.
That's why I started The Ventriloquist Academy. To get into the streaming and digital age.
Ventriloquism is growing again as an art form. With the likes of Jeff Dunham, Daric Lynne Farmer,Terry Fator and others helping lead the charge. And it's showing no signs of slowing down any time soon!
We had good numbers again this year at the Vent Haven ConVENTion, with near 100 first time attendees.
And with a new museum on the horizon, the future (and past) of ventriloquism looks strong. Check out what's going on at the museum here:
