"Saw me open and count my rings." That's the answer Willie Tyler's little buddy Lester gives when asked how old he is. Inspired by TV ventriloquists like Paul Winchell, Tyler took a correspondence course in ventriloquism at the age of 10 and was soon performing around his hometown of Detroit. After four years in the U.S. Air Force, Willie returned to Detroit and signed with the Motown Record Corporation. For the next eight years he and Lester toured with all the Motown greats, including Smokey Robinson, Diana Ross, The Supremes, The Temptations and Marvin Gaye. Tyler and his pal Lester have appeared on The Tonight Show, Jimmy Kimmel and The Late Show With David Letterman. You'll never forget this little "chip off the old block" once you see him perform at the Boca Black Box in Boca Raton.
