Shot with eight simultaneous cameras, this big screen adaptation of the Tony Award-winning, stand-up comedy memoir features master storyteller Jay Johnson as he traces his artistic ascent within the world of ventriloquism. Johnson, who rose to fame playing the schizophrenic role of Chuck and Bob on the groundbreaking TV sitcom SOAP, showcases his immeasurable gifts through dialogues with his hilarious and outrageous ventriloquial personalities and ultimately re-imagines and redefines the wonderful art of ventriloquism for contemporary audiences. “What a treat! Jay Johnson dazzles us with his magical gifts and comic savvy.” - Leonard Maltin.
