I am looking to buy this wonderful illusion from anyone who has a used one. Also, I would like to network with anyone who is willing to share with me, as I am new at the art of venting.

I've used the bird on arm illusion (the non-animated one). I like it. It looks much better than having your arm stuffed up the animal's...

I'm not a master vent or anything, but I'm happy to talk privately if you have questions or want to bounce around some ideas. Please feel free to send a private message, or use my email address from the profile.

I use one (check out my pic with Axtell's
"Vern" on the left). Axtell sells the Axtrax CD's on his website, which includes routines for birds. I like looking at the scripts on his website (which you can view for free) to get ideas for routines (I have bought a few too). Also, there are bird joke books at the Maher Studios web site, which are good when developing routines.

It can take some time to develop a routine to go along with it if you don't want to use a canned script like Axtrax provides. I find myself continually evolving the routine, which includes magic. However, the kids love the bird, which they can relate to in a
"Sesame Street" sort of way.


I forgot to mention the bird arm illusion. It's great. I would not use the bird without it. You have to decide if you want the left or right hand version when you order. I have learned to use the left hand for the puppet (even though I am right-handed) because I like to keep my right hand free for doing any "magic" that might be included in the routine.

For ventriloquist networking, I sugest you to join ventriloquist mailing list. There are several of it on and others.

The most active ventriloquist mailing list in yahoogroups is Worldvents.

Or you can attend several ventriloquist convention/festival. Check the dates on the mailing list.

Hope this help you.
