Gabby's Birthday

Gabby turned 9 this year and we had a small celebration in school with Tito Marcus and Lolo Carling and lots of balloon hats and giveaways courtesy of PARTY STATION AND ALL4FUN PARTMAKER :)



VENTRILUSIONIST...Visual and Voice Illusions

Hindi Ventriloquism and Magic show ha...NO doves, rabbits, cards, mentalism etc etc...this one is strictly Full Ventriloquism and Illusions...

Palagay ko ako palang unang gagawa nyan.

Last night I tried it at the Celebrity Club but 1 illusion lang. I did the Voice Box, then Don Dom then the Mask then Nicolo then the Modern Art Illsuion and it was a kiler routine na. Imagine if madagdag pa Compressher at Broom Supsension...

I think ito na yung sinasabi nilang Signature Act

Suuuper Duck!!!

Meet the latest member of my gang of puppets...Tatarara!!! Suuuper Duck!!!

Made by Ms Mary Ann Taylor (MAT)

Suuuper Duck is strong, fast and brave. He has a big appetite for pizza too :)

Newspaper clipping below shows the Duck as a female duck :) and the previous owner Ms Val Hilliker from Alberta, Canada who is so kind and generous.

Me and my Vent Act at Padi's Point

Last night, I performed my Vent Act at Padi's Point QC. When I arrived at the venue, I immediately saw a big banner that says MAGIC SHOW. I panicked because I did not have my Magic act with me because my agreement with them is for me to perform my Vent Act. I asked the manager why and the reply I got shocked me. Apparently, the word VENTRILOQUISM might be too heavy for their target market so they opted to use the term Magic Show.

I love doing Magic and Ventriloquism...I can do a full Magic show or a Full Vent show or a mix of both. But I just can't imagine doing a Vent show for a crowd expecting a Magic show...or vise versa.

It's a good thing I had my Axtell Special FX Drawing board with me and my spongeballs :)

In any case, I learned a lot of things in this gig and I got paid in the process... so basically, it's another good night for me and VENTRILOQUISM.

Special thanks to my friends who were there to help me. Flooch, Symond, Chayno, Arnold, Chris Orbon, May Almazan, Bob, Alma, Hazel, Frieda, Abraham and my wife Debbie :)

Ony Carcamo at CCP

One of my Vent mentors...the Philippines' premier ventriloquist, Mr Ony Carcamo. I was seated in the gallery during this show at the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP)...the show was really fantastic. Ony is featured in this video with an antique Mack-Marshall figure he calls Nonoy :)

Ony Carcamo is a very generous vent, teaching the new vents in the Philippines and sharing his ideas and techniques during our local Vent Jams.

Thanks for the visit...
