Ted E's Farewell Tour | David Strassman

The shyest little bear in show biz hangs up his show biz shoes… but is this the end?

Popular American ventriloquist David Strassman is on his way to Australia to bid a sad farewell to one of his beloved friends in “Ted E.’s Farewell Tour”. Tragically, Ted E. Bare, the much adored cuddly bear known and loved by audiences around the world, will be announcing his show biz retirement during a forthcoming Australian tour that will include performances in regional South Australia, Victoria and New South Wales throughout May.

Why is Ted E. leaving the stage after so much adulation? An addiction, a scandal, an affair? No! It’s finally just become too much for one timid bear to bare! The pressure, the publicity, the paparazzi, the tabloids! And, most of all, his best friend, but worst enemy, Chuck Wood!

A star-studded tribute to Ted E. Bare’s greatest show biz moments, “Ted E.’s Farewell Tour” will follow Strassman’s journey of discovery to replace the irreplaceable little bear. This moving, hilarious and wild ride will feature the razor sharp wit of Chuck Wood we have all come to fear, as well as uncover some new and extraordinary characters desperate to join the show in a hilarious “You’ve Got Talent- Puppet Edition” segment.

The existing characters you know and love also don’t take long to realize the opportunity that Ted’s exit stage-left offers! Expect to see grumpy Grandpa Fred, the attention-seeking A.N.G.E.L. and intergalactic Kevin battle it out with Chuck Wood to fill Ted E.’s very small shoes.

David Strassman is considered by many to be one of the best ventriloquists in the world. His shows are hilariously funny and razor sharp, featuring full stage production complete with dazzling sets and state-ofthe-art theatrical effects. His shows involve multiple characters and high-tech puppetronics (robotics) that bring his characters to life, even when he has left the stage.

Embraced in Australia since his early performances in the 1990s, his numerous television appearances and his own show on Channel 9, Strassman is now hoping Australian audiences can convince Ted E. to remain on stage.

But will Ted E. Bare really leave for good? Can the show go on without him? … You’ll need to buy a ticket to find out!
