and Lindsay Goffman
train the spotlight on five ventriloquists who have devoted their lives to making audiences laugh with the help of some truly colorful friends. When withdrawn 13-year-old Dylan
finds his voice in the form of a flippant black puppet named Reggie, his father just wishes he would put down the doll and play football. Meanwhile, former beauty queen Kim
keeps schoolkids in stitches while seeking a job on a cruise ship, veteran cruise-ship performer Dan
strives to stay in his wife's good graces, Terry
makes a play for the top prize on America's Got Talent
, black sheep Wilma
brings smiles to senior citizens and Walmart shoppers, and a visit to the annual Vent Haven convention in Ft. Mitchell, KY, finds ventriloquists from all around the world converging to exchange jokes and bond through puppetry.
