Neale and Clarice the Chicken were featured performers on Zoink’d which aired on YTV, Canada’s Youth Channel. He is an experienced family performer who makes guests of all ages laugh!


Neale Bacon was born and raised in the Vancouver area of British Columbia and has been providing quality entertainment for children and their families since 1977. He first became interested in ventriloquism at the age of 6 through a local kids TV show Pete’s Place hosted by local ventriloquist and magician Peter Rolston . Neale also heard about a ventriloquist named Edgar Bergen, and he tracked down all the records he could of Bergen’s old radio show. In the following years Neale also became very active in theatre. In 1977 he returned to Vancouver and continued his studies in acting, mime and clown work.

Since that time, Neale has become an international performer, having performed in both Canada and the United States. He has represented Canada at the International Venthaven Convention of over 400 ventriloquists from around the world. Neale is one of very few full time professional ventriloquists in Canada, and is dedicated to providing good clean family entertainment to a new generation.


“Neale was a solid act and is very professional. I'm sure Neale & his critters would be a hit with your group. Neale has what it takes to make your event a success."
Ken Groves, Assistant Director Venthaven Convention
