Joe Gandelman

"With each puppet so superb in design, garnering audience immediate reaction, and functionality Landon tops his previous puppet, creating an immediate audience reaction when the character hits the stage! In my 29 years of doing ventriloquism full-time his puppets are my favorites and inspire me to joyously practice and rehearse more!

 

 

Landon Harvey is taking soft-puppet sculpture/art to a new level with puppets utterly superb in design, getting instance audience reaction, and functionality. He is quickly redefining soft-puppet making in the 21st century with puppets that don't just look and FEEL good but also offer the surprise of delightful special effects."

-Joe Gandelman, 2017

Bob Rumba

"Each character that I had Landon build feels like it was made for me. The more you use it the more it fits your hand. I used the dog on a Zoom show, with two jokes and they wanted me to bring him on the next week-I've never had anything like that!

My dog, Lil' Speedy is made in a way that animates himself with no extra effort, and looks as if he's alive even when he's sitting still!

 

Landon can make a puppet that works for you because he, himself, is a ventriloquist and knows what you need!"
