Greetings! I'm a professional face painter, newbie balloon twister, amateur clown and I just recently developed a relationship with an inexpensive orangutan/ape hand puppet named Zulu. I've always wanted to master the art of ventriloquism but now I realize that at my age, it's not easy learning a new language... because I truly believe learning to speak for your puppet is like learning a new language! I want to introduce this furry little animal in my clown act but I think I'm going to bring her in as a silent pet... one that whispers in my ear. I manipulate her pretty well - as a matter of fact, my husband looks at her instead of me when I practice!

I need help in figuring out how to incorporate Zulu in my clown act. My clientele are children & they would love to meet Zulu, I'm sure but I don't really what to do with her!

Any help would be appreciated!

Hello from Middle Tennessee, I am a amateur close-up magician-- cards, coins, and sponge balls. As far as your Zulu dilemma goes, I have no idea, but you can probably find some tips in the "I'm a real boy!" section under "Carnival of Fun."
Good luck, Roy.

Welcome SmileyFaceArt,

Kids love a little prankster and they love being nice to a little kid who doesn't know any better because she is just little.

Both avenues offer a lot of comedic possibilities.

Hi - ventriloquism is one of my fav's
(Nina Conti is not only pretty, her shows are excellent Smile,
plenty of them around in Youtube)
Dunno if I'm the correct person to say "welcome" since
I've been here for only a couple of days, but I wish you
all the best with the puppets!

Hello, Christine! Do you ever perform as far down as Hixson? I think we met briefly at the Cici’s on 153 about a year ago? Once in a great while I’ll run into other Café members at lectures or conventions. East Tennessee is starting to jump! Smile

Anyway, Welcome Aboard! You’ll like the Café.

Hello DWrackley!

Yes, I certainly cover Hixson & the greater Chattanooga area but I was not at Cici's on 153 :-(

So far, my internet searches have only come up with 2 face painters... myself & a girl that often works for me. If there are others out there, they don't have an internet presence at all.

I will be at Kidabra in August in Pigeon Forge... do you plan on attending?

Thanks for the welcome!

Alas, no. I can generally make one convention per year and I’m saving up for Winter Carnival, still in Pigeon Forge, but not until March.
