#46 Ventrilo-Card

Al Getler
(Card #10, Set #4)

Al Getler became interested in ventriloquism at the age of eight, when he received a Danny O'Day figure for Christmas. He taught himself the art of ventriloquism with the help of Jimmy Nelson's records, and performed for the first time professionally when he was twelve. He was inspired to become a ventriloquist after watching other ventriloquists on TV in the late 1960s.

Al has performed for many fortune 500 companies, casinos, conventions, comedy clubs, schools and colleges. He has been featured on FOX-TV, CBS News and ABC-TV's "Good Morning America."

Al continues to perform his act for corporations and groups around the country. He was appointed to the Board of Advisors for Vent Haven Museum, and has served as chairman of the Ventriloquist Convention twice, once in 1990 and again in 1995. Copyright 1995 OO-LA-La, INK.

    Al Getler ALSO organized the wonderful Senor Wences testimonial luncheon I attended in 1989. I will always be grateful to him for that, & to you also Clinton for telling me about it in time for me to be able to go! Bill Smith
