Comic ventriloquist Joe Gandelman does thousands of interactive shows for all ages all over the country and in Canada for audiences of all sizes and in any kind of venue He has also done two special 8 month tours of schools in the United States and Canada and been featured in stage variety shows and variety show tours. No venue is too big or too small. He has performed at corporate shows, opened for national music groups such as the rock group The Eels at The Music Box in Los Angeles, entertained on Navy ships, appeared in stage variety shows on big stages and casinos, performed at Camp Pendleton before a speech by former President Ronald Reagan and was seen on ABC World News Tonight with Peter Jennings. Joe and his dummy, John Raven, appeared on NBC's hidden camera show "SPY TV." He also taught comedian Margaret Cho how to do ventriloquism in a segment on her VH1 reality show "The Cho Show." He was a co-presenter at the celebrity-packed Hollywood Beauty Awards at the historic Hollywood Avalon theater, presenting awards with Carmen Electra, Navid Negahban and radio personality Lisa Stanley. His shows and "walk around ventriloquism" are highly popular attractions at fairs and festivals, where they get -- and retain -- big crowds. And at private parties. All his interaction-packed shows feature a BIG CAST of dummy and puppet characters. He routinely CUSTOMIZES his interactive shows for corporations, parties and in school assemblies schools of all levels where his "learning through laughter" thematic school shows include themes such as no bullying, respect, pro reading, anti-drug, anti tobacco, Internet Safety, stay in school, test preparation -- and he will customize shows for schools with a theme of THEIR choice at no extra charge. His holiday shows are (Christmas, Chanuka and more) are always in great demand. He also does shows for summer camps, scouts, malls, adult parties, kids parties and is a highly popular performer at libraries. Joe does walk around as well as stage shows: at one Gigmasters gig, he used 9 characters during 2 `1/2 hours of walk around.One corporation hired him to do a special three hour how-to-do-ventriloquism workshop with the underlying theme of goal setting and goal achieving. Adult corporate show and party clients can fill out BASIC CUSTOMIZATION FORM -- and Joe will customize the show at NO EXTRA CHARGE. Joe Gandelman is included in The Great Ventriloquists trading cards. NOTE ON ABOVE DEMO: It shows a few bits from Joe's family shows where there are kids or kids and adults in the audience. Adult audience shows are NOT completely the same since all shows are geared to each specific audience mix. Kid and teen shows are adjusted for each age group. The SPY TV bit was a special TV stunt. The lip sync at the end is an optional segment offered to clients. Some shows end with an optional how to do ventriloquism segment where a volunteer gets up and becomes and instant ventriloquist.

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on January 29, 2022From Pleasanton, CA

Nothing was too much trouble for Joe. He jumped in with both feet and made our event one to remember. When our friends talk about the night, they gush about how good he is. We whole heartedly recommend Joe for any event and you couldn't meet a nicer guy.

Corporate FunctionReviewed on December 10, 2021From Bakersfield, CA

Joe was absolutely fabulous! He not only entertained our staff but included us in the fun. His lip sync routine was hilarious and we were so happy to have him. We would certainly have him back again!
