If you are not familiar with ventriloquism or ventriloquy, it is an illusion of sound or the act of throwing one’s voice to make it sound like it can come from somewhere else.

For Jamie, he made his voice come from his friend and ventriloquism dummy, Chuck, the chicken.

The act starts off well with lots of laughs from the audience.
