Australia’s #1 Ventriloquist Stage Show

Darren_CarrAt the tender age of eight, Darren Carr started playing with dolls and talking to himself. Much to his parents’ relief, these peculiar traits were not the result of “too much chlorine in the gene pool’”, but Darren’s interest in the art of ventriloquism. From these early beginnings, Darren has gone on to become Australia’s Premier Ventriloquist, performing both here and abroad to wide acclaim with his “One man and a cast of several” show.

He has also created and presented specialised programs for such varied clients as: Tooheys, Wild Turkey, Westfields, Westpac Careflight, Lend Lease, Aristocrat, Darling Harbour, Cancer Council, AFL, Breville, Tattersalls, Starlight Foundation, Campbell’s Food Stores, Tandy Electronics, Mazda, Ferraro Foods, Adbrook, Dominelli Ford and Dick Smith, to name but a few.

Darren has been honored with numerous “ACE” and “MO” Entertainment Awards as “Specialty Performer of the Year” and in 2005 and 2006 he received the ACE Awards “Club Performer of the Year” trophy. He has also twice accepted invitations to appear as a headliner at the International Ventriloquist Conventions in the USA.
