Video of my kid show vent routine with the Toucan hand puppet then I switch to a Magic Toucan animatronic. I could have done vent the whole time but wanted to demonstrate the MagicTrax to non-vents at the convention.

I really love the switch between the bird arm / vent puppet to the animatronic puppet! It is done in a natural way, so it comes off very smooth.

Bravo , Steve !

I agree. The switch was terrific, and the animatronic toucan was a marvel to behold. Congratulations on a real breakthrough in puppetry!

Thanks! Running our business Axtell Expressions I just don't have time to be on stage regularly so I love opportunities like this at conventions where I can demo our creations for you regular performers that will use them in your shows. Ax

With your trax running in the background, you were even better than Ashley Simpson, Ax Smile At first I couldn't even tell it was a trax at all.

Best,

Ha! Well unlike Ashley... I wasn't lip synching for my own part. It WAS fun having the voices being able to walk all over each other interrupting and singing together. With Vent, we have to do one voice at a time..but it's an awesome skill! Ax

Steve, frankly, this is the first time I see you perform a whole routine. I only see you with short acts demonstrating your puppets in your website. I also used to see you in a Christian channel with your Donut puppet long time ago.
You are truly a great puppet manipulator aside from being a superb puppet creator. Hope to see more in the future.
Magicians are the most appreciative when it gets to this kind of entertainment in conventions. I don't get that much cheering, applause, laughter and screams in a normal show. I feel like a rock star when magicians are my audience.

You rocked, Steve!

This is the reason why Steve is such a great vent puppet creator--he's a great vent and he knows what we need!

Congratulations!

Thanks so much...I am humbled. Sounds like I should video more often. In order to continue to invent good products for entertainers I need to perform.... I must never loose touch with the audience.

Btw Steve, did you ever get to meet Jim Henson before he died? I bet he would have loved you and your work. It would have been an awesome match!
