I had a wonderful evening on Saturday performing some close up magic for the guests at Claire and Ian’s 10th wedding aniversary.
I recently held a competition on my Facebook page Colin Dymond Magic and Ventriloquism to name my new squirrel puppet.
The winner, who named him Dmitri was Jenna Clake. Here she is with her prize, two of my new Snot The Dragon chocolate lollies. These are available, if you book a children’s party for £1.50 each. I will be running a compassion soon where someone can win lollies for all the children at their party!
Make sure you are signed up to my Facebook page for a chance to win.
This July I was exceedingly pleased to be asked to perform at the worlds largest ventriloquist convention, in Kentucky USA.
This was the fortieth anniversary of the convention so it was a big affair with nearly 700 ventriloquist from around the world attending.
We were treated to lectures from Terry Fator, winner of America’s got talent and now star of the biggest show in Vegas. Jeff Dunham arranged for all 700 attendees to be bused to see his show at a local arena, he then came back to be a part of the convention!
I was asked to perform in one of the evening gala shows. To say it’s a little daunting to perform in front of the best in the world is a bit of an under statement. They were an amazing audience and I had a great time. I can’t wait to go back again and hopefully lecture on how I add magic to my ventriloquist routines.
Here is a short clip with the highlights from my show. I hope you like it.
