Sammy King


You asked for a return engagement by ventriloquist extraordinaire Sammy King and his wiseacre partner "Francisco," and the Follies obliged!

Born in Brownsville, Texas in 1940, his career began after seeing mentor, Paul Winchell, on television. "I sat my kid brother on my knee and squeezed the back of his neck to cue the 'dummy'," says King.

Since 1958, he has given over 25,000 performances including the very last Ed Sullivan Show. He played the Crazy Horse Saloon in Paris for ten years, appeared in ten major Las Vegas production shows, and has opened for Rich Little, Bill Cosby, Cher, Ray Charles and Tony Bennett.

King's long-lived success is due, in no small part, to Francisco, his ever-present and ageless companion, who apparently hails from Mexico. For 50 years, the colorful "bird" has relentlessly abused and tormented King. Francisco, in a word, is "a smart-ass," who "because of King's exceptional talent and skill" has become real to countless audiences.

Together, they are truly one of the last remaining and most beloved of the great performers who once stood upon America's vaudeville stages.

The Follies joyfully welcomes them back for their final appearance anywhere (Francisco has decided to retire to his hacienda in Tijuana following this engagement.)
