on American television as “the world’s greatest
ventriloquist” died yesterday aged 79.
I’m not a big fan of ‘vents’ & anyone who has seen the film ‘The Dead Of Night’ will understand why but he was the only one who never creeped me out.
Not to mention the fact that he was REALLY good. I never once saw his lips move when Lord Charles was talking & he never resorted to the ‘gottle of geer’ style of speaking that so many vents do.
If don’t know this great man or his work I recommend that you follow this link & read his obituary http://www.guardian.co.uk/tv-and-radio/2010/may/24/ray-alan-obituary If you have never seen him work you have missed a treat.
