About Ventriloquism

Ventriloquism, or ventriloquy, is an act of stagecraft in which a person (a ventriloquist) changes his or her voice so that it appears that the voice is coming from elsewhere, usually a puppeteered 'dummy'. The act of ventriloquism is ventriloquizing, and the ability to do so is commonly called in English the ability to 'throw' one's voice. Originally, ventriloquism was a religious practice.
