In 2001, artistic designer Mike Brose released the most important book on how to build a professional ventriloquist figure ever written. It was called "Figure Making Can Be Fun?!?" The book was a huge runaway hit and everyone who had ever wanted to build their own professional figure now had the instructions on how to do so.

Still, even with this great resource now in print, many would-be figure makers were still finding challenges with actually making the parts (head, eyes, hands, etc...) needed to assemble a finished puppet. Mike Brose to the rescue again! He then designed and released a ventriloquist figure "kit" which included all of the unfinished parts necessary to build a figure.

If you would like to read more about the "Figure Making Can Be Fun?!?" book, or about Mike's build-it-yourself kit, please visit Mike's website at

One day, mechanical designer, artist and lifelong ventriloquist, Al Stevens, purchased one of Mike's kits and was so impressed with the quality that he not only built several figures from the kits, but also put up a website detailing, with photos, how to build a Mike Brose figure kit.
Al's website is here:

However, there are still many new and seasoned ventriloquists who want a professional ventriloquist figure that do not have the desire, time, patience, or skills necessary to build their own.


Through a special arrangement between Mike Brose, Al Stevens and Lee Cornell, we are extremely pleased to offer "Fred." A completely finished, beautiful, extremely high quality, and most importantly, very affordable professional ventriloquist figure made from the Mike Brose figure kit! 

The Brose/Stevens Fred figure is only available exclusively through the Ventriloquism 101 website.

Each "Fred" is built from scratch when you order. The head, hands, body and feet are made from a tough industrial casting urethane that is used a lot in the prototype and special effects industries. This material will last many, many years. You'll also appreciate Mike and Al's attention to detail and excellent quality in both the materials used and in the construction of Fred.

Al installs smooth, quiet and easy to operate brass controls. He also hand paints each figure, taking great care in the blending and shading of the colors.

Make no mistake. This puppet is no "mass produced" toy dummy, but a real professional ventriloquist figure that you will be proud to use in your show. Since each Fred is hand built and painted, no two will look exactly the same.

Each Fred is built from start to finish by Al Stevens himself. Some companies use several people during the construction process which can affect the final quality of the puppet. Al personally makes each puppet himself to insure that you get a top-of-the-line professional ventriloquist figure.

We are confident that you will not find a professional ventriloquist figure of this quality, at this price, anywhere else!

Important Ordering Info:
If ordering on-line, the price that will show on the order form will be for the Standard Fred. Please list hair color, eye color, right or left handed controls and any additional features you want on your Fred in the "Special Comments" section of the order form. We'll email you to confirm your order and the total before charging your credit card.


As mentioned above, each Fred is hand built from scratch by Al Stevens. Depending on the number of figures he has to build and the options you want on your Fred, the length of time to complete your puppet will vary. However, we are trying to keep production time down to one of the shortest in the figure building business. 
FOR THE STANDARD FRED: Al will attempt to complete your new partner within 3 - 6 weeks.
FOR A FRED WITH RAISING EYEBROWS AND/OR BLINKERS: Al will complete your figure in 8 - 12 weeks.
 In the world of professional figure making, these are still very short time-frames. There are other figure makers who take six months to a year or longer to complete a professional figure.

To make delivery faster, upon completion Al will send your Fred to you via U.S. Priority Mail right from his studio.
