The COVID-19 pandemic has wreaked havoc on the standup comedy world, but it has also created a unique opportunity for those looking to study a long overlooked side of the industry — ventriloquism.
The mandate to wear protective face gear in many U.S. cities has opened the world of ventriloquism to a wide swath of talent, even those who can’t talk without moving their mouths. Yes, this long required attribute of the art can be completely skipped once you’re properly fitted for an N-95 mask or one sewn by a crafty Pinterist junkie with a sudden influx of free time.
