Justin Ver Burg has been asked by The Late Show with David Letterman to come to New York, kept audiences laughing at the Olympic Winter Games and appeared in a documentary on Ventriloquism by Miramax Films.
He knew he had a future in entertainment when, at age 16, he took first place in the “Big Foot Talent Contest” in the major metropolis of Acme, Wa. (population 263). Yeah, that’s a sure sign of future success…
While a student at Wheaton College, he took first place in its talent show. After his performance, he was in such a hurry to get to downtown Chicago to see a concert, he didn’t even realize he had commanded a standing ovation.
Ver Burg got his start in ventriloquism at age 15 when he carved his own sidekick (pictured to the right) out of a block of wood. People suspect he did this because he didn’t have any friends. Can’t get friends the traditional way.. Why not make one? Literally
He says, “I’m so glad I have enough comedy talent to be able to throw away my life, being a ventriloquist.”
