Michael Harrison, Ventriloquist

When: Sat., Jan. 23, 11 a.m.-2 p.m. 2010

If you grew up in the 1960s, chances are you might have been mesmerized by seeing ventriloquists on TV. Whether it was Shari Lewis (with her puppets Lamb Chop and Hush Puppy) or different acts on the old Smothers Brothers variety shows, I remember being amazed at the talent of someone "throwing" his or her voice, even changing inflections, with little, if any, movement of the lips. You don't see ventriloquists much anymore, but these days one of the best is Michael Harrison, a former finalist on America's Got Talent who has performed in Las Vegas. Now he's touring, and today he comes to Pueblo's Sangre de Cristo Arts Center Theater (210 N. Santa Fe Ave., sdc-arts.org) for shows at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. as part of the Children's Playhouse Series, with tickets only $6. And if the rave reviews are right, you don't have to be a kid to be blown away. — Ralph Routon
