Each year, he puts on a ventriloquism contest with an adult and children’s category. The winner gets an all-expense-paid trip to the International Ventriloquist Convention (Venthaven) in Erlanger, Kentucky (just outside of Cincinnati, OH).

Additionally, the winner in each category gets access to Learn-Ventriloquism.com, a high quality ventriloquism course put out by comedy ventriloquist Tom Crowl. Plus, they receive a $350 credit toward Axtell Expressions, one of the world’s leading suppliers of ventriloquism puppets.

Fortunately, Justin (Funny Dummy) was able to take home the grand prize in a recent contest. He was able to attend the ventriloquist convention, receive a free puppet and access to the exceptional course.

In total, the value of 1st place is approximately $3,000.

Justin won by submitting a video where he and his Axtell ventriloquist figure as some women from United Kingdom for directions to Canada.

The women laughed hysterically because Justin and comedy sidekick (as well as the ladies) were in Los Angeles at the time. Maybe directions to Mexico would have been more logical… but there would’ve been no laughter.
