On Wednesday, the ConVENTioneers met Aaron. Now it is time to learn more about his life and career. Everyone is back from the museum and sitting in the showroom for Mark Wade’s interview with Aaron. While we can’t show you what is going on, we can share this blurb from Aaron’s biography:
Aaron and Freddie opened on a regular basis for many of the giants and legends of show business such as Sammy Davis Jr., Ray Charles, Gladys Knight and the Pips, Dionne Warwick, The Temptations, Jerry Lewis and many more. Aaron has performed in all of the top casinos, hotels, and clubs coast to coast as well as internationally. The first big break was when the Smothers Brothers took him to New York and Harry Belafonte presented him on the TONIGHT SHOW. That night was very memorable for many reasons. Fondly Aaron remembers he was approached backstage by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. who talked to him about ventriloquism.
During his entertainment career Aaron joined the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s department and soon reached a new popularity with his Deputy Freddie along with a new friend Sergeant McGruff. The team spread the anti-drug and anti-gang messages throughout the schools and across the nation in person and on television. His efforts and accomplishments were recognized with many awards.
Aaron is a master ventriloquist and impressionist. Watching a performance it soon becomes unbelievable that Freddie is not real. Aaron’s skill is so perfected that the conversations between Freddie and Aaron at some points sound like they are both speaking at the same time. If you are looking for superb entertainment, then you are looking for Aaron and Freddie.
Following the interview, we’ll break for dinner. Tonight’s show starts at 7:30 PM (EST). See you then!
