7 Things All Ventriloquists Will Understand


Posted on

1. People Are Easily Spooked By Your Hobby


Not gonna lie, some people get pretty freaked out when you tell them you're a ventriloquist. Movies like Goosebumps and Chucky simply give dummies a bad name. It's meant to be funny not make people cry with fear.

2. People Constantly Ask You to Perform on the Spot


Another reaction to telling people you're a ventriloquist is, "oh my gosh, do it!" Honestly, saying something with my mouth closed isn't as amusing without an actual doll to throw my voice into.

4. You've Participated In at Least One Talent Show
