New York City
The self-proclaimed President of the Uninformed States of America is coming to the West Village’s Duplex Cabaret Theatre.
Donald J. Tramp is a ventriloquist’s dummy that bears a striking resemblance to the 45th U.S. President, complete with an orange quaff, squinty eyes and an outrageous mouth. The ventriloquist is April Brucker, a petite, Monroe-esque actress, comedienne, and media personality who launched a YouTube video series for Mr. Tramp’s presidential campaign on April Fools’ Day 2016.
“From Jeff Dunham and Walter all the way back to Edgar Bergen and Charlie McCarthy, ventriloquists’ dummies have always gotten away with outrageous remarks,” says Ms. Brucker. “Now there’s going to be a President who makes professional dummies look like amateurs.”
