Who he is: When Crowl is on stage, his good pal Dangerous Dudley Duck usually isn't too far away. Crowl, of Westminster, is a comedy ventriloquist with three decades of performing experience. When Crowl is on stage with Dangerous Dudley Duck, the crowd needs to be on alert. The duck's been known to crack some one-liners at the expense of his audience. And he makes fun of Crowl, too, of course.
What he does: Crowl performs for all kinds of audiences, typically at corporate events. But every once in awhile, Crowl, the duck and the rest of his friends can be found at a public event in the county. He performed at the Carroll Arts Center in Westminster earlier this year.
"I love the fact that he can do a squeaky clean family-friendly show as well as a PG-13 show," Carroll County Arts Council Executive Director Sandy Oxx said. "Not an easy feat, but Tom does it."
