    Is there anybody on here from Sydney, Australia, who might know about Cecil Parkee, AKA Lai Moon Chee Ventriloquist?

    In particular, would like to know the name of the doll in this picture?

    Thanks for your reply.:) I think he may be retired now, but was a regular performer in China Town.

    You might have more luck asking on the Magic Cafe, which has a Vent board in its forum, or try one of the Facebook groups devoted to Ventriloquism. There are a lot of very knowledgeable Ventriloquists hanging out on Facebook, you just need to seek them out. There is a Facebook Group devoted to puppeteers in Sydney and NSW, that might be a good place to start.

    Thanks. I have found out that the Dummy's name is Wally. I now have the head and have made a new body for him. Sadly, the head needs restoration.
