Ever since Jeff Dunham got more mainstream we’ve managed to see a whole slew of copycat comedians practicing their art. We’ve seen stand up shows, skits and it’s safe to say that while many are good at what they do, the comedic value is lacking. Maybe is was the initial shock factor that made it so funny, but even going back to some of Dunham’s original shows you can still laugh along to this day. Well, even though there aren’t as many decent ventriloquist comedians out there, this little girl is giving them all a run for their money.
Meet thirteen-year-old Darci Lynne Farmer. She may be young, but the talent she has is as undeniable as the passion she shows. Ever since she was a little girl, well, more little than she is now, she’s wanted to pursue ventriloquism to the fullest. These days she travels all across the globe to perform her acts to all types of audiences, and wouldn’t you know, she comes from Oklahoma.
Performing on the show Little Big Shots in England, she whips out her pigtailed puppet Katie and sets her down on a bail of hay. Immediately the little girl’s phone rings and she’s quick to answer to brush off the caller, after all she’s about to perform! Katie slowly looks towards Darci with annoyance in her voice, asking, “Would you get off the phone?” Innocent jokes told from an innocent little girl follow, but the show doesn’t just center around those.
It’s not long before a very country tune blasts over the studio speakers and the “duet” began one heck of a musical number. As the music continues to play the back and forth singing styles clash less often than you’d imagine, but even then it wasn’t over. The two begin to yodel, Darci using a deeper pitch to reserve the higher notes for her partner Katie, all the while barely moving her own mouth. Whether you like country music or not, that’s some serious talent on display!
Previously Darci had won the competition on America’s Got Talent, and she’s got no inclination of stopping with just that.
