David Malmberg - comic ventriloquist, brings many characters to life and making voices appear out of anything.
David remembers the first time he saw Paul Winchell on TV and whamo instint urge. At the age of 13, he began throwing his voice in his classroom, to the confusion of his teachers. At the age of 15 with thought of David's ability of being a fine Ventriloquist, his parents bought him his first dummy. He began performing at Blue and Gold Banquets and other community functions. David went off to serve his country as a member of the US Navy. While in boot camp he continued fooling his fellow recruites with his voice throwing. While serving he was assigned a DJ position for American Forces Radio, in Cuba and Spain. While in Spain he took up the classical guitar studying with the American Guitarist Martinez Serrano, this did him justice, he has recorded 6 Albums to date.
David made music a part of his ventriloquist show, when he returned to the United States. So returning to Minneapolis MN and landing work k102 and WDGY as an operations director for the next 20 years. David received many industry awards during this time including being named one of the ‘Top Ten Program Directors’ in America in 1990 by Inside Radio. It also gave him continued opportunities to practice voice characterizations on the radio and in hundreds of commercials.
Davids desire to perform live forced him to step down to move forward. For the past 17 years David has Zig zagged the country with his Vent Program and His Musical Guitar, doing about 125 shows a year. Opening for such luminaries as Merle Haggard, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Juice Newton, BJ Thomas and The Statler Brothers, to name a few.... He wrote a book in 2004 for Montgomery Press “Secrets of Ventriloquism”. If have any other thought s of this fine ventriloquist please enter an e mail and place a comment.
