Experience of Matilda and Patrick
After teaching himself ventriloquism from Izzy Rizzy’s Home Study Course (a $4 booklet from Izzy Rizzy’s House of Tricks and School of Ventriloquism on Chicago’s South Side), Patrick decided to stop throwing freight and start throwing voices.
His newfound talents landed him in top nightclubs where he honed his craft and sense of humour. After a few successful years, he decided to see the world and started tours that covered the entire US, Caribbean, South America, Australia, Europe, and Asia.
Matilda was born into a talented family. Her father, Winston, is a world-class Limbo Dancer who always taught her the importance of raising the bar. Her mother, Camille, is listed in The Guinness Book of Records as the world’s fastest basket weaver and hair braider. Brother Clive is an airline pilot with Air Jamaica, although he was never able to overcome his fear of heights, he gets by pretending to fly a DC 10 in nothing more than a Buick with wings…
Patrick’s greatest successes came after introducing Jamaican Comedy Diva, Matilda, into his act. This character was developed at the encouragement of West Indian friends and co-workers who thought that Patrick’s talent for the West Indian accent and sense of humour warranted a character that highlighted the islands. Matilda was an instant hit and a beloved character.
In 2002 Patrick married the love of his life Nicole. Although she did bring a little baggage into their marriage… Luckily for Patrick, the baggage contained Antonio the Latino Ant!
Together, Nicole and Antonio bring even more fun and surprises to the show. Residents of British Columbia, Canada, this happy family spends their time on tour making people forget their troubles – both at home in BC and at their condo in Miami Beach, Florida.
