Bob Baker - Gastrointerologist by day, Ventriloquist by night and a true crowd favorite at every comedy night event.
Bob taught himself to “throw his voice” at the age of 9 after seeing Chicago ventriloquist Terry Bennett on television. Bob also learned magic, mentalism, and hypnosis. All these skills led to his performing in clubs, restaurants, and resorts--and helped him pay his college and medical school bills.
Since 1982 he has been practicing internal medicine and gastroenterology in Great Neck, NY. He has authored a book for patients on preparing for surgery and has written several scientific papers.
In 2008 Bob returned to comedy, and by 2010 he was a finalist in the “Long Island’s Funniest Comic” contest. He has won rave reviews for his new restaurant show “Close-Up Comedy with Bob Baker & Friends.” In 2011 and 2012 his performances made him the talk of the convention at the International Ventriloquists Association.
Bob donates all his performance fees to charity.
