The Vent Haven Convention

 Vent Haven ConVENTion launches today, the annual three day ventriloquist convention held at Vent Haven in Fort Mitchell, Kentucky. The sight of hundreds of ventriloquists and their dummies all in the same place at the same time is a degree of insanity I DEMAND from the world, and I hope to see it before I either die or become possessed by a malevolent ventriloquist dummy. Instead, tomorrow I’m blowing town for another convention (see here tomorrow for news on that). At any rate, I’ll be with you in spirit today, vents! (A little wordplay there. Very little).

To find out  the history of vaudeville, consult No Applause, Just Throw Money: The Book That Made Vaudeville Famous, available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and wherever nutty books are sold.
