A Look At Jimmy Nelson And Friends

Posted by Michael on October 11th, 2019

Ventriloquist Jimmy Nelson passed away late last month. Perhaps best known today as the spokesman for Nestle, Jimmy performed with “partners” Danny O’Day and Farfel the Dog on his own show, Ed Sullivan and even as a game show host.

The only magic on last night’s edition of America’s Got Talent was Dom Chambers’ officially leaked performance (which we shared here)… Michael Paul did appear with his ventriloquism act but he is not the Arizona based magician, and master of the card under drink, Michael Paul.

Ventriloquist and magician Christine Barger not only brought her partner Darlene Hollywood to Penn and Teller: Fool Us but also Carrot Top… unfortunately, she did not fall the boys. Still, it was a great appearance and we are happy she posted it on YouTube.

Tonight is the season finale of Penn and Teller: Fool Us, although it will air again Friday after the season finale of Masters Of Illusion, all on The CW.

Something Is Fascinating About This…
