Class of 1967
Jay has achieved much success using his voice. As a talented ventriloquist, he has starred in one man shows, toured with Dick Clark and landed a role on the hit comedy show "Soap" as character Chuck Campbell and his puppet, Bob. He also starred in "Broken Bridges" in 1990, guest celebrity appearances on many game shows and hosted two series of his own, "So You Think You've Got Troubles" (1983) and "Celebrity Charades" (1979). Jay won the 2007 Tony award for best special theatrical event for "Jay Johnson: The Two and Only". He is the only ventriloquist to ever be nominated AND win an American Theatre Wing Tony Award or An Ovation Award. The original "Bob" puppet was inducted into the Smithsonian Institution's Collections of Pop Culture Icons in May 2007. (Source: Wikipedia)
