Being a ventriloquist in Seattle is a lot of fun because the people in the Pacific Northwest seem to have a particular affinity for the arts. The fact the I made my ventriloquist dummy and many of my ventriloquist puppets also perks their interest. Bottom line though, is that I am here to make audiences laugh. They like the comedy I do with the ventriloquist figures. It’s geared toward comedy club audiences, but contains no profanity or off-color subject matter, so corporate audiences like it at their events to.
Did I grow up in Seattle? No, just North of Seattle in Bellingham, Washington. It’s a beautiful city just between Vancouver, BC and Seattle. When it’s sunny (which can be rare during certain times of the year), I contend that it is the most beautiful area in the world. To be candid, I don’t mind when it rains either. Yes, I enjoy the sun, but there’s something to be appreciated about all weather patterns as long as we can still go about our day and be safe.
Although I grew up outside of Seattle, I did move to Bellevue after graduating from a college out East. It was great to come back to the beautiful Pacific Northwest as a ventriloquist. After that, I moved downtown Seattle to a place near Lake Union so I could be closer to the comedy club scene (Seattle Comedy Underground, the now defunct Seattle Giggles Comedy Club, etc.).
Whether it’s the Eastside of Seattle or downtown, I enjoy it all.
While in Seattle, I joined Meeting Professionals International (MPI) and was heavily involved. I worked with a lot of meeting planners on a regular place, and even received a reward during my time there. The Washington State Chapter of MPI is based in Seattle; however, it encompasses all of Washington State. Events even take place in Spokane from time to time to ensure that those East of the Cascade mountains feel like they are a vital part of the organization as well.
I’m probably sharing much more information than you may want to know, but a lot of show attendees want to know my ties to the Seattle area. It’s a great city, and I am pleased to serve the city through comedy ventriloquism.
