This Ventriloquist in a Matthews Coffee Shop is the Funniest Thing You’ll See Today

Steve Brogan will be performing at Matthews Alive.

Picture it: it’s a picturesque day in downtown Matthews. The birds are chirping. It’s nearing lunch time at Brakeman’s Coffee Shop, when a guy with a dummy walks in.

Steve Brogan has been a comedian ventriloquist for more than 30 years. So when #QueenCityWknd asked him to hang out in Matthews to help promote his performance at Matthews Alive, it was a no-brainer for him. After all, he’s a town native – having grown up and raised his own family there.

You can catch Steve on September 2nd at 1 p.m. in the Woodforest Bank Indoor Cultural Center Stage. WBTV’s Eric Thomas will be emceeing the festival, with the parade starting at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday as well! (There may even be a special appearance by Storm 3!)
