It is currently 5:30 PM in Kentucky and the conventioneers are entering the show room to “Meet Aaron Williams.”


In 5th grade, Aaron assisted a magician who gave a performance for his school. He was fascinated and a teacher showed him a Charlie McCarthy dummy doll. That introduction started his career as a ventriloquist.

In the late 1960’s, Aaron, with his partner Freddie, became the opening act for legends of show business including Sammy Davis Jr., Ray Charles, Gladys Knight and the Pips, Dionne Warwick, Jerry Lewis, The Temptations and many more.

He appeared on The Smothers Brothers television show which led to guests spots on the Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson, The Pat Boone Show, Dinah Shore Show and more.

Aaron-Williams-2 At the height of his fame, Aaron joined the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. He attained the rank of Sergeant and along with his deputy, Freddie, performed anti-drug and anti-gang messages in person and on television throughout the schools in all of Los Angeles County.

After this session, we will all head for dinner and prepare to be back in the showroom for tonight’s Official opening of the convention and the Big Wednesday Night Show. Things kick off at 7:00 PM (EST). See you then!
