nina conti

i found nina conti on youtube via an article in the grauniad re the current edinburgh festival. i watched a short video interview with her and decided i needed to know more. apart from the fact that when i was 14 i had a massive crush on her dad, in those days known as the thinking girl's crumpet, i was just drawn to her act. those of you who know me well may understand why she has caused me to consider learning how to be a ventriloquist. enjoy!


  1. This is the funniest thing I've ever seen. And, yes, I do understand why you want to take up ventriloquism. I don't know how LanLan will take to having you put your hand up his bottom.

  2. ah, but i shall not have to put a hand up his bottom. since he does not have a mouth, i shall have to develop something else. mind-reading, perhaps?
