Featured Figure:
Coach

 

Date Created: Circa 1999

Created by: Barry Gordemer (Handemonium)

Used by: Tyler Ellis / Bruce Beyer

Trivia: 
1.This soft figure was designed by Barry Gordemer of Handemonium Puppets to be look a like figure for ventriloquist Tyler Ellis.
2. Coach has blinking eyes and moving eyebrows. According to Ellis, this figure was the first figure for which Gordemer ever created moving eyebrows.
3. As might be expected with a look a like figure, Ellis gave the figure the name "Taylor," which was very similar to Ellis' first name.
4. Ellis sold the figure to Dr. Bruce Beyer of Nashville, Tennessee, who donated the figure to Vent Haven Museum in 2002 in honor of his parents.
5. As might befit a coach, this figure is currently on display on the bleachers of Building Two. He cannot be seen, however, on either of the Quicktime Virtual Pans of the building.
