Review of W.C. Fields Ventriloquist Dummies
W.C. Fields was one of America’s greatest-ever comedians, with impeccable comic timing, sarcastic quotes and a cantankerous – yet charming – persona.
Little wonder then that W.C. Fields doll is one of the best selling ventriloquist puppets, so much so that there are FOUR different upgrades of dummy available!
W.C. Fields basic ventriloquist dummy
The W.C. Fields basic ventriloquist doll is 30 inches tall, dressed in a smart suit and wearing his distinct straw boater hat. A vinyl carrying case is also included to pack him into when he’s not busy making everyone laugh.
By pulling a string in the back of his neck, the ventriloquist can make the doll’s mouth move.
Also included is an informative “Seven Simple Steps to Ventriloquism” booklet to help you master this fun and interesting skill!
