I think that ventriloquism is underrated. One of my favorite acts is Jeff Dunham and his character, Peanut. My brother will remember how much we would watch him and just laugh our asses off (ok, maybe me more than him because he has this elitist attitude about how he has a better sense of humor than I do). I found this on youtube and couldn't resist posting it. If you like it, I suggest watching parts 2 and 3 - thats when Jose, the Jalapeno on a Stick comes out.
