The Business Of Show Business

Ventriloquist Figure Building

I am delighted to carry on the great traditions set forth by Fred and Madeline Maher, founders, and Clinton and Adelia Detweiler, who took it to the next level.  Although the studio was closed for a period, Mark Wade, Ken Groves and I brought it back to life in 2013. Mark & Ken departed Maher Studios at the end of 2016, leaving me to forge the future of Maher Studios & the International Ventriloquist Society.
