NBC always finds good ventriloquists.
Randy Feltface, the puppet act made famous by ventriloquist Sammy J, will be part of the “Variety” portion of the upcoming Bring the Funny competition coming soon to NBC. The series will air on July 9th for NBC and will feature Amanda Seales as the host and Chrissy Tiegen, Kenan Thompson, and Jeff Foxworthy as your judges. The competition will run for ten episodes and will crown a winner for $250,000.
For those that don’t recall, Randy Feltface was half of the aforementioned “Sammy J & Randy” stage act that would then be adapted for the excellent Seeso series Sammy J & Randy in Rickett’s Lane. Since then, the duo has stayed mostly in their Australian home stage, but appears to be making another stab at American shores. Watch a teaser below to get a sense of the series:
