Matilda! and Patrick Murray

Patrick Murray’s family was a little taken aback when he told them he wanted to be a ventriloquist when he grew up. Especially since when he told them he was 23 years old. Up until that time, although he was a clever mimic and full of funny voices, he made his living unloading freight trains.

After teaching himself ventriloquism from Izzy Rizzy’s Home Study Course a $4 booklet from Izzy Rizzy’s House of Tricks and School of Ventriloquism on Chicago’s South Side. He decided to stop throwing freight and start throwing voices. His newfound talents landed him in top nightclubs where he honed his craft and sense of humor.

After a few successful years he decided to see the world and started tours that covered the entire US, Caribbean, South America, Australia, Europe and Asia. His greatest successes came after introducing Jamaican Comedy Diva, Matilda into his act.

Her mother Camille is listed in The Guinness Book of Records as the world’s fastest basket weaver and hair braider. Brother Clive an airline pilot with Air Jamaica, although he was never able to overcome his fear of heights, he gets by pretending a DC 10 in nothing more than a Buick with wings.

This character was developed at the encouragement of West Indian friends and co-workers who thought that Patrick’s talent for the West Indian accent and sense of humor warranted a character that highlighted the islands. She was an instant hit and a beloved character.
