Justin Ver Burg (stage name: Funny Dummy™) is the world’s best natural-born ventriloquist. He is also the ONLY natural-born ventriloquist. (-;
If you saw his first few shows, you’d agree that he was NOT a natural-born Comedian. (-;
Although it took some work to translate his natural sense-of-humor to the stage, after only six months working the comedy clubs, The Late Show with David Letterman invited him to New York to be considered for the Show. He didn’t have an interest in going at the time, but was honored by such an invitation.
Comedians who’ve been hired to open for him have appeared on:
The Late Show with David Letterman (CBS)
Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson (CBS)
and Live at Gotham (Comedy Central)
This story appeared on NBC (SEATTLE) in 2007, 2008, 2011 & 2012.
