Scott Correll
Most of us know Scott through his magic shop - SWC Magic - which can be found in the Abbott dealers room and at other conventions. This year Scott is going to share with us his experience and wisdom for the Vent O Rama show. In the past, Vent O Rama was hosted by Paul Stadleman and George Schindler, now the tradition continues with Scott. Scott tells us how, at a magic convention at the age of 16, Scott saw a lecture by George Schindler and he was hooked on puppets. Today, at the time of this writing, Scott has been using puppets in his show for over twenty years! Scott will teach simple ventriloquism and how to make your puppet come alive. You don't have to throw your voice to learn to be a puppet master doing magic with your puppet, so if you have a puppet bring it along.
