In the early 80’s Ace started studying ventriloquism and soon created the character Dudley the Talking Rabbit. Ace quickly became an expert ventriloquist and Dudley went on to become a huge hit in all of Ace’s shows. The highlight of the ventriloquism act is an original bit of business called “the Voice Switch”!
Circus Minimus was another original creation that Ace performed for years at festivals and fairs. This show always included his daughters on stage, his wife and friends helping backstage and many guest performers over the years. Some of the guests included: Dean Hankey (illusionist), Steve Chaney (ventriloquist), Christian Fitzharris (from the film Sister Act) and John Gilkey (currently starring in Cirque du Soliel).
Over the years Ace has been seen in numerous television spots and commercials for companies like Toyota and appearances on the Disney Channel, Mornings on 2 and the A&E network’s Good Time Cafe with Ellen DeGeneres. Ace has spent countless hours of practice developing his prestidigitation skills (many of which during high school which were supposed to be for homework). He performs this intimate style of entertainment wherever groups of people gather. From the very first trick he performed for relatives at the age of five, sleights such as card manipulation and coin flourishes to mind reading and “psychic key bending” have always been favorites of Ace’s.
