Carla Rhodes... Coming Soon!

CARLA RHODES is the world's foremost (and only) rock'n'roll ventriloquist. Hailing from Louisville, Kentucky, she's been throwing her voice since the age of 9 and was mentored by the legendary Shari Lewis.

Notable venues include Bowery Ballroom (opening for Neil Hamburger &  Tim Heidecker), Joe's Pub, The Cutting Room, Terminal 5 (opening for the Eels), The Slipper Room and just about every rock'n'roll, burlesque and alternative comedy venue in NYC. She's been up and down the ol' USA from performing in Los Angeles to Dragon*Con in Atlanta at the sold-out Puppet Slam. She's been across the pond to The Glasgow Comedy Festival and appeared on cabaret and vaudeville shows in London too! Whew!

Past honors include Andy Kaufman Awards Finalist and Ars Nova's ANT Fest. Solo shows include “The Continuing Story Of Carla Rhodes” and most recently, “The Plight Of Cecil.”

Unfortunately, you've most likely seen her cantakerous sidekick CECIL SINCLAIRE in the gutter, not looking at the stars.

Dubbed by New York Magazine as one of the "Ten New Comedians That Funny People Find Funny," according to Backstage "Carla Rhodes isn’t your typical ventriloquist... She's intent on shaking up the norm..." and described in The Villager as "the Savion Glover of vents, almost single-handedly injecting a notoriously uncool and backward-looking performance branch with a badly-needed kick in the ass," Carla Rhodes is certainly bringing ventriloquism screaming into the 21st century!

CARLA RHODES & CECIL SINCLAIRE currently reside in New York City.

Short Documentary



Carla & Cecil was made for the International Documentary Challenge. Directed by Emily Sheskin & Veena Rao, the film is a short character study of Carla Rhodes, a ventriloquist in New York City.
