This Ventriloquist Uses Humans As Her Puppets And It's Hilarious
Jun 22, 2015
Born in London, Conti has performing in her blood (both of her parents are actors). Although she holds a degree in philosophy, Conti has always worked as an actress and comedian. She started her career on the stage and was a member of the Royal Shakespeare Company for the 2000-01 season.
It was her time at the RSC that led her to become a puppet master. Director Ken Campbell created "Let Me Out!!!," a ventriloquist play, specifically for her. Since then, she has appeared with puppets on stage and television and even won awards for her unique performances.
You've seen ventriloquism, but probably never like this. Putting on a show that is equal parts hilarious and interesting, Nina Conti is a comedian that has found her niche.
