Darci Lynne Farmer lives in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. She was born on October 12, 2004. She is a ventriloquist. She first saw ventriloquism while at a church event, something clicked, and she decided she wanted to pursue ventriloquism. She asked her parents for a puppet to help her overcome her shyness, and on her tenth birthday, her parents surprised her with a puppet. Now, she would like to keep ventriloquism alive because it is not very common.
