Dummies: Dumb Waiter

Johnny was whittled in 1980, and modelled on popular TV alcoholic Keith Floyd.

Purchased by 'blue' ventriloquist 'Naughty' Norman Smith, the half human / half lacquered wood duo worked steadily at the social clubs and caravan parks of the UK for over twenty years. In 1986, they came third out of four on the revived 'New Faces' TV talent show with a significantly watered down routine.

'Naughty' Norman died in 2002.

Now Johnny waits, he just waits.
