Ventriloquist Nina Conti - In Your Face

From The Weekend, 10:45 am on 22 January 2017

The World Buskers Festival is underway in Christchurch and one of the headling acts is UK ventriloquist Nina Conti. She's performed around the world, appeared on Live At The Apollo, and her and her puppet Monkey were in the cast of the Christopher Guest mockumentary series Family Tree. As well as having a host of characters she regularly returns to, Nina somehow manages to persuade audience members to get involved and become her living ventriloquist dummies.
