Gareth Oliver

£1000 - £2000

Gareth Oliver was originally brought to our screens in the 2009 screening of Britain's Got Talent. He closely missed out on the final, much to judge Piers Morgan's dismay. He later claimed that 'we need some great variety acts in the final, and he should have been one of them.'

 

Gareth goes out with an array of characters, including Pava Potts, Charlie the Monkey, Keith Teeth and Grandpa George, along with the last piece of the puzzle... Alice.

 

Alice is the newest member of this vent family. Their double act show not only pushes the boundries of ventriloquism, but is also guarenteed to have everyone totally and utterly confused!

A ventriloquist who uses a female stage partner, a member of the audience and at one delightful stage a glass of water to display his talents really is different. Gareth Oliver looks like the Russell Brand of ventriloquism and as I recall his first ever stage act, named Cheese Before Bedtime also featured a female stooge. Oliver is different, innovative and seems set to take the art of the vent act forward. The big hit of the second night certainly and possibly a star in the making if he receives a much deserved telly break.

It was sensational, you are a real showman, you sold yourself well, it was very inventive and you have, well he (the puppet), has a great singing voice!
