2. Darci Lynn

Darci Lynn is most likely the ventriloquist who’s made the most headlines this year, thanks to her outstanding performances on season 12 of America’s Got Talent (which she won).

Her talent as a ventriloquist captivated the public. It was what helped Darci get all the way to the finale of the show and made her famous throughout the world. However, she is not only a fantastic ventriloquist.

She is also a gifted singer with incredible stage charisma and a surprising sense of humor. It is hard to believe she is only a 13-year-old.

In case you need to jog up your memory, here is Darci performing in the finale of the show alongside her now famous puppet friends Oscar and Petunia:


3. Todd Oliver

Todd is among the top famous ventriloquists in the world. Unlike the vast majority of ventriloquists who mainly use dummies in their routines, Todd Oliver has found a clever and creative way to include pets into his performances as well.

By skillfully moving a flap underneath the dog’s bottom jaw, Todd manages to make it seem like the dog is moving its mouth to talk. We know it is probably hard to picture this idea in your head, so check out the video below to see it in action:

This brilliant yet straightforward illusion represented a novelty in the field of ventriloquism, and it is a fun addition bound to bring a new level of enthusiasm and excitement among guests at your event.

Although this routine has been hugely successful, Todd has remained loyal to traditional ventriloquism methods as well. This means he can also bring to the stage interesting dummy characters for which he has developed strong personalities, such as:

  • the fast-talking insult comic Joey
  • the bewildered senior citizen Joey
  • Joey’s dotty girlfriend Miss Lilly.
