Biography

Christine Barger is a nationally touring LA based entertainer.

Her film and TV credits include iCarly, American Pie: Beta House, Dexter, Days of Our Lives, 90210 and more. She has been seen as a comic ventriloquist on USA's Character Road Trip, The Tom Joyner Show, Last Call with Carson Daly and many live venues. She is also a member of the Academy of Magical Arts at the Magic Castle.

Christine was born and raised in Indiana and began performing ventriloquism at the age of 7. She discovered her natural gift as a result of losing her baby brother at an early age. Making her imaginary friends talk was her way of coping. She then began helping others through her performances and sharing her story. Christine took this tragedy and transformed it into her passion of helping others by making them smile.

She volunteers with many non-profit organizations. She also began teaching improv comedy as a way to help others improve their self-esteem, public speaking and teamwork skills.

As a result of her work with improv, Christine has discovered a new way of bringing laughter to her audiences. She has combined two of the things she not only loves, but is very skilled at: Ventriloquism & Improv Comedy creating "Ventrilo-prov".
