Otto and George
Otto & George is a hilarious adult themed ventriloquist comedy team composed of comedian Otto Petersen and his dummy George Dudley. Otto began performing with George as a street act in Manhattan and Brooklyn in the early 1970s. In the late 70s the act moved into night clubs and began to evolve into the “x-rated” current act.
Otto & George are frequent guests on the Opie and Anthony radio show, have appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman, Penn & Teller’s Sin City Spectacular & Bullshit! programs, and Showtime’s Full Frontal Comedy. The duo have also appeared in the feature films Comedy’s Dirtiest Dozen with Chris Rock and Tim Allen, and performed a version of the “The Aristocrats” joke in Paul Provenza’s & Penn Jillette’s film The Aristocrats.
Performing for over 30 years, Otto is well renowned as both a comedian and a ventriloquist. One notable aspect of his ventriloquism is that his lips still move while he speaks with the George voice, but the illusion of there being a different speaker is made with the sharp contrast in the George voice with his own. Otto speaks with a low, rather nervous voice whereas George speaks in a loud, harsher voice.
Otto & George perform all over the U.S. and Canada. The duo have performed several times at the annual Just For Laughs Comedy Festal in Montréal Canada. The first season of the Pig Roast with Otto and George on BashBox TV has become an internet TV sensation.
