Clean comedy with Uncle Ty-Rone

Tyrone Travis, aka “Uncle Ty-Rone,” and his puppet Ba-Be T-Rex sing their ABC’s July 6 at the "One World, Many Stories: Uncle Ty-Rone’s World of Ventriloquism” program at Newport News (Va.) Public Library System’s Grissom branch. The 45-minute show, part of the library system’s summer reading series, included positive hip-hop and clean comedy for children and adults. Travis, a native of Virginia, has been a professional ventriloquist since 1994.
