I have received and read the book, “Ventriloquism: Art, Craft and Profession“, by Al Stevens. This is by far one of the best books on ventriloquism as it covers a wide variety of subject matter that you’ll need to know to become a proficient ventriloquist. Even though some of the material may seem the same as other books on ventriloquism (substitute sound, lip control, etc) , Al has added his own thoughts, techniques and experiences on the subject that are invaluable. I feel this book is a wonderful text book on ventriloquism and if you sit down and study the material and follow Al’s directions on performance techniques, comedy writing, promoting techniques and all the little things that go on behind the scenes, you will be a well prepared Ventriloquist! Al has done his homework on this book. The thing I really like about this book is that Al shares important information that can only be learned from performance/ experience. Al has been compiling this information over several years and now he is ready to share it with you!
So, if you thought you knew everything you needed to know on the subject of ventriloquism, then think again. This Book is a must for the beginner to the seasoned professional!
