This Comedian Puts a Mask On A Volunteer. What Happened Next Is UNEXPECTED & VERY FUNNY !!!

Nina M. Conti is an English actress, comedian and ventriloquist. One of her most popular acts involves a volunteer from the audience. Nina puts a mask on him which she controls with a hand-piece. Then the volunteer is being put in awkward and funny situations. The funny part is that the participant’s body language doesn’t match the speech. Every performance comes out to be unique due to volunteer’s will to cooperate or not. But this guy exceeded everyone’s expectations. He was clearly not happy at first with the situation he’d put himself into, but then decided to go with it, and finished the act with a shebang. This hilarious video will make your day, and Nina’s skill will surely impress you. Please, enjoy and don’t forget to share.


The act of ventriloquism is commonly called in English the ability to “throw” one’s voice. It was originally used in religious practice. The name “ventriloquism” comes from the Latin, which means “to speak from the stomach”, venter (belly) and loqui (speak). The Greeks thought that the sounds in the stomach belonged to the souls of the dead, which were living into the stomach of the ventriloquist. People believed they could talk to the dead through ventriloquist. One of the known early practitioners was Eurykles, a prophet at Athens. In the Middle Ages that ability was considered witchcraft. Ventriloquism became a performance act only in 18th century. The earliest recorded performer was known to perform in 1753 in England. In became a very popular act at travelling funfairs and market towns. But those days the performer would make it sound like the voice was coming from afar, and the dummies came along later. The father of modern ventriloquism is considered to be Fred Russell. In 1886, he was offered a professional engagement at the Palace Theatre in London. His act involved engaging a dummy into a conversation. By the way, the fear of dummies is called automatonophobia.
