With economy on the skids, how's everybody doing in terms of bookings? I'm actually doing better than usual since September. I'm not sure why my business is up when everything else is in a downturn.. but I'll take it

I agree David, things are up. I think we can owe a lot of that to the high profile of Jeff Dunham & Terry Fator. People are thinking about ventriloquism again.

My business is up too. Part of that was because of a re-focus by me on better paying markets (corporate instead of birthdays etc).

I agree with Tom that Jeff and Terry have no doubt given us all a lift.

One thing I have heard from a coupkle of clients is that they have had magicians in the past (many times in some cases) and wanted to try something "new" instead of the same old magic tricks.

I find that Business is up as well..... I contribute it to when the economy is down so are people so they are looking for a few minutes to put there troubles aside and Laugh. Forget everything for a couple of hours and enjoy life again. Just my 2 cents

That only means you guys are good performers...

For some of our peers, business is running slow. Thank God mine is running just fine...

I hope with the new American President and the high hopes all over the world, things will get better soon.

Thanks be to God for His unspeakable gifts...

I am grateful that I branched out to ventriloquism, after starting in magic in the mid-70's.

Yes Vent is in the public eye and does help market my show.

Of course I just do this part time, but it is a great second income.

It is good to share our different talents with the world.

In the future will come a bit with my new ukulele.

Annie my nearly normal wife came up with an idea...She will be called to work he gets mad that I am playing the ukulele...While she manipulates him, I will play the uke and provide his voice....

(sort of an old school version of the robotic puppets.)

It's an exciting time in the vent world..

I'm one who got really interested in vent many years ago, but pretty much put aside all professional ambitions and branched into other aspects of show biz, always had vent on my mind though...

Thanks in no small part to Fator and Dunham, I hope we are going to see a huge resurgence in vent, and, those of us "small timers" can start gettin' "gigs-a-plenty! ; )

Time will tell....
