As wood as it gets
Presenting Van Trillo and Sam Suede. A fast-talking, no-nonsense detective duo (pictured) with a twist: Trillo is a ventriloquist and Suede is a dummy. "It's Charlie Chan meets Charlie McCarthy; Philip Marlowe meets the Muppets; Humphrey Bogart meets Edgar Bergen. Except that Suede is tougher than Bogie and Trillo (as played by real-life ventriloquist Jonathan Geffner) is a better ventriloquist than Edgar Bergen." There is also a T&S movie, Oxford Park, in the works.
The May 18 program breaks every broadcasting rule in the book by daring to have a voice-tosser on "radio." At the same time, our theater offers a courageous act, a man and a dummy. After all, how many of these do you meet down the Hallelujah Trail?
