Ventriloquist Kevin Driscoll

Thursday, February 20th
Children who volunteer to perform with the ventriloquist dummies will play different drums including the Irish bodhrán, Tahitian toeré, Trinidadian mini-steel drum, and many other percussion instruments.
ATTENTION PARENTS: Doug The Talking Dog will not bite children, he only bites Mommies and Daddies… but he may try to bite the tambourines, maracas, and drumsticks that we distribute to all the children.
Driscoll returned recently from his performance and sessions with Jeff Dunham and 700+ professional ventriloquists at the International ConVENTion of Ventriloquists in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Driscoll performed at the International ConVENTion of Ventriloquists with Darci Lynn, the 12-year-old ventriloquist who went on to win a million dollars on TV’s America’s Got Talent. After Driscoll’s performance at the ConVENTion, Darci’s coach and producer Gary Owen proclaimed: “Kevin, you’re an outstanding performer. I love your stage presence. You’re fun!”
Driscoll, who has taught music for many years, enjoys how his job allows him to combine three of his passions.
“This way I get to combine music, ventriloquism, and education.” Driscoll said. “I get to do what I love, and I get to bring joy to everyone.”
According to Maureen Flanagan, Children’s Librarian at the William Fogg Library: “We encourage all family members to join in this family-friendly event. Grandparents will remember Edgar Bergen, Señor Wences, Sheri Lewis with Lambchop, and the many other ventriloquists on the Ed Sullivan Show. When Driscoll brings out his Charlie McCarthy replica puppet, most seniors recognize Charlie McCarthy and call out his name.”
