Mr. Nobody Presents: Carla Rhodes

Artist & independent filmmaker, Ethan Minsker, who we've featured here before, has a bunch of new material I'll be running over the next few days. First up is this pilot for the Mr. Nobody Show featuring rock 'n' roll ventriloquist & comedienne, Carla Rhodes.

Carla Rhodes is a rock 'n' roll ventriloquist & comedienne. She caught the ventriloquial bug at the age of nine after seeing Shari Lewis and Lamb Chop on television. Carla later caught the attention of her hero and as a result, was mentored by Shari Lewis.

By the time Carla was a teenager, she was performing all over her hometown of Louisville, Kentucky. While attending Middle Tennessee State University, she recorded a full length comedy music album in Nashville. "I Love Animals," a cut off of "Carla's Golden Hits, vol 6," got rotation on the Dr. Demento's "Top Funny Five," eventually placing at number two. With a Mass Communications degree under one arm, and a puppet under the other, Carla then escaped to New York City.
