Ventriloquist has his hands full with his latest show

DAVID Strassman's latest show might be debuting brand new wireless technology, but the veteran ventriloquist promises it won't be without his old tricks.

"It's going to be 95% hand-up-the-bum traditional ventriloquism," says Strassman.

"Because that's what we all want to see."

To the pleasure of audiences the show sees the return of old favourites such as the evil Chuck Wood and delightfully cute Ted E Bare who team up with a number of new characters including an Aussie inspired koala puppet.

Strassman says his latest show, which is currently enjoying a successful four- year run, is his most refined show to date.

"It's a journey through time and space." Strassman said.

"Chuck figures out that if I ever leave the show, he'll die.

"So he decides to bribe all the puppets to take over my brain to control me.

"When I find out, I get very angry and wish they never existed."

While this won't be Strassman's first performance at Maryborough, he is quick to insist it also isn't his last.

"I love being in Maryborough, with its beautiful theatre right on the river." Strassman said.

"Australia is my second home.

"There is a great attitude, it's laid back.

"Barbecues, a cold stubbie on a hot afternoon, you just can't beat that."

Strassman performs at the Brolga Theatre at 7pm on Friday, March 28.
