As some of you may now, I’m a real fan of ventriloquists and I think they’re one of the world’s most talented people. I’m sure you got an email with the video or at least a link to it on YouTube, Jeff Dunham’s ventriloquism act, Achmed The Dead Terrorist.

If you’ve not seen any of his acts yet, do yourself a favour and go take a look.

He won last year’s America’s Got Talent and if you take a look at some of his clips you’ll see this man is well deserving of the one million dollare prize money.

Terry Fator is releasing  his new book called “Who’s the Dummy Now” – thanks Warren.
