Nuff said...they had their fun. Cool!

Now I'm having a little fun of my own expressing how I feel..that's just what it is.

In regards to the silly video of Brad Ross & David Kaye it seems that everyone is looking into this too deep. It was just a spur of the moment goofy silly thing that was so spontaneous and done right on the spot on the streets of NYC. The Super stars Brad Ross & David Kaye, yes they are just that. Here are two guys who make a SERIOUS six figure income doing what most people can not do AND they love doing it. So if you have been in this TRADE for sometime and you have not heard about them, maybe you should stick your head out of the basket just a lil bit more!
A bunch of cool funny guys hanging out with each other!
From: John Carlson (The Camera Man)



With all due respect John...does David Kaye know who Tom Crowl is? Does Brad know what Maher is for a lot of vents? If not...you should also give them the same advise of "stick their heads out of the basket just a lil bit more!"

Wanlu, I am fine with those guys having no clue as to who I am.

IMHO the video was not funny. It is just my opinion. I'd never heard of David and knew of Brad only because he sells a course to magicians. (Like so many other success stories...)

It seemed to upset John that I had never heard of them, so I did my homework.

I have heard of Silly Billy - didn't make the connection. The guy is a popular Kid Show entertainer. He markets books and apparently products. That doesn't make him a superstar.

Brad's got a Disney contract. Great for him, but it doesn't make him a superstar either.

John, why are you, Brad and David hung up on that term? A SERIOUS six figures doesn't make them superstars, neither does the fact they make a living performing. You are working pros - which should be enough.

Superstars are people like Copperfield, Blaine, Robin Williams, Madonna - say the name and even people outside the business know them. Sorry Brad, a Radio Disney DJ had no idea who you were until I told him.

Egos aside, I am done with this topic - it isn't worth wasting my time.

I thought the vent spoof video was amusing, and I'm a ventriloquist. (It's all in good fun and such a niche video anyway.)

For that matter, many of us are quite serious about making sure our shows come across to our audiences as anything but serious.

I think it's a great quality to be able to laugh at ourselves from time to time and not take another's efforts at silliness too seriously.

I think it's funny too til the part hwere they mentioned Maher and blurted a big laugh...it did not seem right to me. They should have mentioned Kidabra instead of Maher since they also have vent lectures there.

I'll ask again...

If it were 3 nobody's doing the video...won't it offend anyone? Is it just "suttle humor" because the video was done by big names so to speak. If it were a guy from Mumbai (India) or Bulacan (Philippines) or Magasanakum (Jupiter) who did the video ...will it still be funny and won't offend anyone specially a ventriloquist.


Tom, I agree with you, it's a waste of time... I appreciate your input...thanks. Smile

John, if by happy chance you go back to this topic and read this...I'd love to know if David knows who Tom Crowl is who happens to be a very busy ventriloquist and well respected by his peers in this branch of entertainment. Does Brad know what Maher is to a lot of vents... if not, then I suppose you ought to give them the same advise you gave us...and please tell them I did not move my lips when I typed this.

David did this video also:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z4cU0ivVTwo

Would magicians be offended? I don't know but it's funny too.

Personally I like it not because they are trying to spoof us but rather I see how creative these people can be.

Watching that video gives me ideas for my next show program.

Can't we all just get along?

Ok maybe the term superstar is a bit much for one guy who has traveled the world and seen by millions of peopl both live and on TV, the other has worked, repeatedly for such Superstars like Susan Sarandan, and some musician who calls himself "The Boss"

My 2 worthless cents
