Otie, Tanya and Friends

Otie and Tanya Vititoe, children's evangelists and multi-talented entertainers, along with their dummies and puppet sidekicks, delight audiences everywhere with their own distinctive skills as ventriloquists, vocalists, puppeteers, comedians, and illusionists.

They WOW the children while instilling Biblical and moral principles in their hearts. They are widely known for their children's praise and worship, puppet ministry, creative sermons, object lessons, and their unique gift of communicating with kids. Many precious children have accepted the Lord during their programs.

Characteristic of Edgar Bergen and Charlie McCarthy, Otie and Tanya, using their numerous character voices, co-hosted Kids' Stuff LIVE!, their own radio program that reached thousands of listeners each week for 11 years. They have also hosted children's TV shows and have lent their voices to numerous radio commercials.

Sensational stage shows feature animated fast-paced variety with colorful, life-sized handcrafted puppets and ventriloquial figures, gospel kid tricks that teach a message, and just good clean fun! Everything from the crazy antics of a cartoon-like rabbit named Dougie to a red-headed dummy named Jazz!

Otie and Tanya serenade and amaze the audience with their remarkable repertoire of voices, vent characters, stories, jokes, sight gags, music and sound effects that are creative and comical!

As bona-fide crowd pleasers, Otie and Tanya know the importance of getting everyone into the act and a lot of loony laughter and untamed applause comes with the participation of on-stage volunteers! But look out! When they start throwing their voices around, they get everyone into the act! Puppets or people, the characters in their show come alive with an extraordinary attraction. How is it done? They're no dummies . . .

"It was our pleasure to have you minister to our children…. I believe that any church, regardless of denomination, could benefit from your ministry". 

Rev. Dave Callicoat --Jefferson Avenue Church of God, Huntington, WV


"For years Otie and Tanya have delighted audiences young and old alike … Their antics are wholesome, clean and suitable for family audiences.  Not only do they draw kids like a magnet, but they are super to work with.  I gladly recommend “Kids’ Stuff LIVE!” as one of the finest puppetry presentations in the Tri-State region."

Richard E. Abel, Deputy Director – Greater Huntington Park and Recreation District


"Otie and Tanya’s animated performance as “Kids’ Stuff LIVE!” delighted the crowds of all ages during our Fox 11 Kid’s EXPO.  The audience quickly became part of the high energy, fun and excitement taking place on stage! … Human dummies, picked from the audience and brought on stage, were a highlight of the shows.  I am pleased to recommend Kids’ Stuff LIVE! as a superb act for any family-type event.  Otie and Tanya’s humor-packed entertainment will ensure your audience a great time of laughter and amazement."

Mindy Bradley, Marketing Director – WVAH-TV Fox 11
