CLIFFORD GUEST IN PERFORMANCE
A couple days ago I gave the eBay link to a copy of Clifford Guest's Course in Ventriloquism that I am selling.
Here, today, is a link where you can see and hear him in performance:
You'll see the very funny "Baby Cry" routine, some Polyphony (he was the master of sound effects), and finally a funny routine with his vent figure where the figure tries to run away from him rather than being put into the case.
A few days ago a friend sent me an email asking how I thought he does the "running bit". I think the figure's pants have very "thin limp legs" within. The weight of the shoes and movements of the torso provide all the exaggerated leg movement. The rest is all acting on Guest's part. You can watch it and see what you think. Very simple - very effective and funny!
