Ventriloquism ain’t dead yet. My review [£] of a magical, hilarious night:
Conti’s latest offering is devastatingly witty and full of daringly unscripted flights of fancy. She giggles endlessly and occasionally flirts with disaster as she summons members of the audience to help her on stage, yet the evening turns out to be a masterclass in pure showmanship. Ventriloquism is too often dismissed as naff or old-hat. Watching Conti is to realise that the art form is timeless.
