Meet Skyler

In case anyone needs to ask who’s the dummy; that would be this guy. His name is Skyler

Skyler has been my comedy partner for 21 years. He was carved by the late Finis Robinson(no relation to me). Finis was well into his 70s when he created Skyler.

Skyler is a one-of-a-kind creation from a crude sketch of mine. His original inspiration was Alfred E. Neuman of Mad Magazine fame. But a quick letter from then editor William Gaines told me I had to make significant changes.

Skyler was the result of those changes.

He ain’t your ordinary ventriloquist dummy, he’s equipped with winkers, raising eyebrows and moving eyes, and an upper lip movement that reveals a nice smile.

Skyler has a caustic personality and is most comfortable in an adult audience.

He’s definitely not for “kids shows”

Hopefully by this summer, you’ll be hearing more from him (and me) on a stage near you.

Have a good weekend.
