Lachlan Werner is a multi-talented man. His ‘Voices of Evil’ deep in a cellar in an old building, promises to scare and terrify it’s unsuspecting audience. Instead, he and ‘Brew’, his brilliant Witch co-star have an audience of all ages rolling in the aisles. 

This talented young ventriloquist is also a high-speed comic and the banter between himself as an altar boy and his boss ‘Brew’ is rapid fire and hilarious. The hour-long flits by with demons, dolls, and books of spells. The soundtrack is thumping and the laughter at full blast. 

The audience is called upon frequently, involving everyone from the start and they love it! The script is clever and funny and the scenario so funny. This talented young man makes his ancient art of ventriloquism relevant, contemporary and very, very funny. If you need a great laugh at the end of a long day...this is it!
