Bryan Burroughs, who had an exhibition at the Smithsonian in 1855. His act consisted of blowing on a pipe and repeating the words of the poem “A Christmas Carol” to a puppet that resembled Tom Hanks: “Christmas is come, and the merry-makers are gathered out to sing.” Burroughs didn’t know the puppet was supposed to be the character of Tom Hanks.

What did Ventriloquist George R.R. Martin say about his invention?
George R.R. Martin, author of “A Song of Ice and Fire,” is credited with patenting his method of “ventriloquism” in 1881. In his new novel “A Song of Ice and Fire” Martin’s characters use words and phrases from the “A Song of Ice and Fire” series to express their feelings, as a way of getting more reactions from readers. Martin’s invention is the most recognizable type, though others include Mr. Bean, Mr. Potato Head, Mr. W.L. Snicket’s “A Series of Unfortunate Events” series and the film that took moviegoers on an odyssey through the “A Song of Ice and Fire” series, “A Clash of Kings.”
