We’ve done a lot of shopping malls, Christmas parties, birthdays, big theatres, outdoor gigs, and a weekly TV variety show, where my cheeky-boy doll, Alfie was a regular judge on the talent quest. That was ventriloquism with a difference – the director didn’t want me to speak at all: just Alfie. Normally the ventriloquist is the straight man/woman in the duo, setting up the jokes and leaving the punch line to the doll. But on that show, Alfie was on his own… which was an interesting experience for me, to say the least.
Alfie is particularly interested in doing any sort of show for children. I just do as I’m told, so if you want to book him, I’ll just tag along, too.
