Barbara Jean found her interest in ventriloquism starting at age 11, when the Lawrence native saw a ventriloquist perform and decided she wanted to become a professional ventriloquist. “It’s pretty steady year-round, “she said. Barbara Jean has performed as far away as Japan, Hawaii and Scotland, at banquets, company parties, conventions and “suffered through a few cruise ships!” She also has emceed pageants and talent shows, which she is very familiar with for she was a former Miss Michigan and the Miss America Talent winner in 1984. Barbara has performed with such talent as the Beach Boys, Meadowlark Lemon, Tom Hall and Gary Morris. When not on the road, Barbara Jean lives in Paw Paw with her husband and daughter. She will be bringing a couple of her favorite friends, Granny, whom she describes as a “feisty little old lady”, and Joey, “a typically spunky young man,” but, there will be other friends there too, waiting to entertain you!
