The Ventriloquist is in town…

Come one, come all…
It’s something new, something fresh…
You’ll laugh, You’ll cry, You’ll scream oh f**k!
Don’t be scared, Don’t be shy, it isn’t jazz…only the doctor and his riotous apprentices…
Come one, come all…
For Bariyu the ventriloquist is in town!

While Lagos slept, just a few minutes short of 3am, when the booze had dried out in the clubs and the last patient had been seen to. Dr. Bariyu got his brain wave…

Yes, he had imaginary friends as a kid, Yes, he is a brilliant medical doctor but No, we didn’t know that he could throw his voice around…
Most of us can’t do more than throw our weight around! This dude is gifted and his sense of humour would give some comedians the shivers!

What is a ventriloquist?
A ventriloquist is a person who can speak with little or no lip movement and throw his voice in such a manner that the voice does not appear to come from the speaker but from another source, as from a wooden dummy or puppet.

Dr Bariyu’s entourage includes:
Dog (commander in chief of the armed forces), Gilbert the gay dolphin (don’t ask!), Baba, Jerry blue, Purple Herc and Toby!

The self-proclaimed “Star of the show”, this gruff-voiced canine is abrasive, rude opinionated & audiences love him for it. You’re never sure what Dog is going to say next, but rest assured, it is totally at odds with his cute, cuddly exterior.

Gilbert the Gay Dolphin is “so gay he can’t swim straight”
Campy, outrageous & wickedly fun, Gilbert believes himself a diva & is on a mission to become a singing star. Obviously, he has never heard himself sing…(Wait till the police catch him) 😉

Baba is an old-timer with a heart of gold, if he can remember where he put it. Hard of hearing & dim of sight, he also forgets where & who he is. The one thing he can never forget is that he likes them young. 😉 Girls take cover!

Others include:
Jerry Blue; the naughty boy from Jand
Purple Herc the singing monster; a favourite of children
Tobechukwu (‘her’ prefers Toby) the toucan!

For more information visit his facebook fan page:

Bariyu’s a class act for all your parties, gala nites, concerts and children’s events…For an out of the ordinary touch of humor!

You can also follow ‘Dog’ on twitter…@bariyusdog (He only just discovered twitter and if we are not careful he’ll be trending soon with pictures of him kissing ermm licking some hot celeb while she sleeps) 😉
