Do you ever wonder what happens to a dummy when a ventriloquist retires or dies? The Vent Haven Museum is in Fort Mitchell, Kentucky. It’s the world’s only ventriloquist museum and it’s where puppets retire.

Ventriloquism experts offer advice to new and old puppeteers at the Vent Haven Ventriloquist Convention.

According to Forbes, two of the highest paid stand-up comedians in the world work with dummies! Ventriloquists Terry Fator and Jeff Dunham pull in around $20 million a year each!

Both of them were in the same place over the weekend: the Vent Haven International Ventriloquist Convention with thousands of other ventriloquists and even a puppet from New Orleans, Waldo the rabbit! Waldo is uniquely qualified to report on all things puppet-related.
