“Ten years in the profession, maybe. I’ve talked to the other people I played with. They said, ‘I think there’s an hour to get to know you.’ There are all these other things that go into it. You start off playing something else, you become a different person.”
“The first day I started, I never learned the word for a dead body, so I used the word “foul corpse.” I had never seen a dead body up close,” says the veteran ventriloquist. He quickly learned the rules of ventriloquism, and his fellow performers say his skill developed rapidly as he gained experience.
The ventriloquists say that the only thing they have a problem with in the act is being forced out of character.
“I am not sure it’s done intentionally on purpose. It could be that I did it as part of what I did to get into the acting profession. A lot of people will take something and think it is the truth,” he says. “Most of those people are going to have some sort of cognitive impairment or other mental disorder and it can’t be helped.”
“You come in prepared. You are always smiling or laughing, but I have to tell you that, if there is ever a situation in which you do not need to be doing it, then you do not know how to do it,” he says. “At the beginning, you don’t necessarily know how to do it and if you are not prepared, you just may be unable.”

Caleb H. Williams III, a former professional comedian who now splits his time between Las Vegas and L.A., was once involved as an apprentice with the ventriloquists. “It wasn’t a great experience, but it was good, because there was a lot of hard work to do, and he did all the practice material over and over and didn’t let me know,” he recalls. Williams, 41, says that he eventually became so comfortable with the material he had practiced, that he could even get away with his “foul corpse” gag.
“I think it’s a good gag. The whole thing is like playing a comedy character,” he says. “What people don’t understand in an act is it’s not just me being a comedian. The jokes I do just happen to be very dark and funny in that manner.”
