Jimmy Nelson has not only encouraged and taught literally hundreds of vents (via his "Instant Ventriloquism" records), he has been a long-time supporter of Vent Haven Museum, Inc. and the annual ConVENTion.  For these reasons (and countless others), the Board of Directors of Vent Haven Museum, Inc. bestowed upon Jimmy the first ever "Dean of American Ventriloquists" title at the 2011 ConVENTion.

One of the benefits of attending the 35th ConVENTion was getting the commemorative book, "A Jimmy Nelson Celebration - 70 Years of Laughter" (now out of print and unavailable).  Until Jimmy writes his autobiography, this is the nearest thing there is to "Jimmy Nelson's Life Story."  The book is in three sections: "A Jimmy Nelson Biography: 70 Years and Counting" -- "A Jimmy Nelson Scrapbook: 70 Years of Memories" -- "A Jimmy Nelson Legacy: 70 Years of Inspiration." 

Due to popular demand, we've slightly updated the book and RE-RELEASED IT!

In the first section, you'll read Jimmy's biography. How he got interested in ventriloquism, how he got his first puppet, how he advanced from amateur to professional, how he broke into the top ranks of show business, and much, much more.

The second section is a walk down memory lane with nearly two hundred photos of Jimmy during his amazing 70+ year career.  Many of these photos were previously unpublished!

The final section is a heart-warming collection of more than sixty tributes from ventriloquists and show business acquaintances.  You'll read stories of how Jimmy inspired people...made them laugh...and made them want to be better ventriloquists (and better people!). 

For this brand new, updated edition, a page has been added that recounts just a few highlights of the 2011 ConVENTion at which Jimmy was honored. Several additional photos have also been included. 

The book features a gorgeous, full-color wraparound cover with original artwork and design by Jeff Dionise. The interior layout was created and executed by graphic design artist (and film producer!) Marge Engesser.  Tom Ladshaw (hey, that's me!) wrote the biography and edited the text.  The book measures 8-1/2" x 11" and has 126+ pages.  It is a quality tribute to a one-of-a-kind human being: Jimmy Nelson.

If you want the ultimate Jimmy Nelson souvenir, don't hesitate....these won't be around forever.
