Ventriloquist James Wedgwood to Perform “The Most Fun You Can Have Without Moving Your Lips”

The Arrowhead Library System announces a fun show for all ages at 10:30 a.m., Sat., Feb 23, at the Cloquet Public Library.

The event is free of charge and open to the public.

Come see James Wedgwood and his amazing comic ventriloquism. Like a one-man variety show, James makes virtually everything talk, from wooden “associates”, to purses, bottles and even audience members - yes, they open their mouths and James provides the surprising words! A game show, singing (without moving his lips) and much more are all part of the fun.

James Wedgwood, who resides in western Minnesota, majored in Theater and graduated with a BA degree from Indiana. He picked up the art of ventriloquism at a young age when one of his aunts sent him a plastic dummy and an audio course on how to be a ventriloquist. From then on he studied acting, improve, and stand-up comedy before
becoming a full-time ventriloquist in 1988.

With outrageous characters and hilarious audience participation, this is a performance unlike any other and one you will not want to miss! The show is appropriate for all ages so feel free to bring the whole family.

This event is sponsored by the Arrowhead Library System and funded by money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund. To learn more about other Arrowhead Legacy Events, please see our calendar at
