In episode #6, of SIN CITY ER, Michele LaFong and her "backseat driving puppets" share their never been told story of how their lives and careers dramatically changed following a high speed, head-on collision that occurred in 2003, while driving to a three month engagement at The Flamingo Hotel & Casino in Laughlin Nevada.
Michele LaFong is the protege of the legendary Senor Wences, the most famous international ventriloquist in the world who "passed the torch" to her, by "handing-off" his original puppets, together with the exclusive rights to perform his famous characters Johnny, the lipstick hand-puppet, and Pedro, the head in the box, as documented in LIFE Magazine, March 1998. Both make cameo appearances in Michele's stage show and on SIN CITY ER. They will also be featured in her upcoming book.

puppeteering skills are extraordinary. She's going to be a star!"

"Her bread and butter closer is a tour de force and all ventriloquist -
multiple voices, voices from various distances, heavy stuff, and our favorite lipstick hand puppet Johnny is top shelf."

And we can see why her, may we quote here ... 'Easy for me difficult for you' from her classic Johnny routine was needless to say
