The West Wing

Ventriloquists and their dummies from Dumbstruck.

Q&A: Doc Filmmaker Mark Goffman on Dumbstruck

Screenwriter Mark Goffman (White Collar, The West Wing) became fascinated with the world of ventriloquism when his shy mother-in-law used it to make a speech at a family event. Several months and thousands of miles later, he had a documentary about this lovable, tough, heartwarming world of professional and amateur ventriloquists.
