Stunt Ventrilloquist Tim Holland: Mississippi Textile Museum
Saturday, 21 July 2018, 2 to 4pm

The Zany characters Tim brings to life always steal the show. Tim has been professionally entertaining for almost two decades. His performing adventures have taken him across Canada as well as internationally to venues in Europe, Asia, and Australia. He’s shared venues with the likes of Splash and Boots, Sharon & Bram, Fred Penner and Martin Short. Get Set for More Laughs than you can Shake a Stick-Puppet at…
The show features ventriloquism, dangerous juggling objects, and a high unicycle. He has performed for the President of Singapore, trained with masters of comedy, and has a rubber-chicken that dances the can-can. More about Tim at his website here: stuntventrilloquist.com
