So, for everyone who ever uttered "S'awright?-S'awright," sang along with Farfel as he spelled his homage to Nestle's "chaw-claaaat" or learned to be nice with Lamb Chop and Charlie Horse, here comes Kelly Asbury's Dummy Days: America's Favorite Ventriloquists from Radio and Early TV, bringing back the best of the Golden Age of ventriloquism. And for those who missed out, don't despair Asbury profiles the five consummate vents who turned a vaudevillian gimmick into an American art form: the legendary Edgar Bergen, the surreal Seqor Wences, the innovative Paul Winchell, the versatile Jimmy Nelson and the invincible Shari Lewis.
"Dummy Days transports the reader back to a simpler time in the entertainment business, when it was all about escapism and fun." --Jeffrey Katzenberg, DreamWorks SKG
Featured in Dummy Days: * Profiles of the five most important ventriloquists of all time * Over 200 rare photographs * Foreword by Leonard Maltin ("I am unabashedly, unapologetically nostalgic about those days," he admits.) * Afterword by Jeff Dunham * "Flip book" corners to see the vents in action
