Jay Johnson is a ventriloquist and actor, best known for his role on the television show Soap. He played Chuck Campbell, a ventriloquist who believed his puppet Bob was real and demanded everyone treat Bob as human. Chuck never went anywhere without his puppet Bob, who basically said all the things that Chuck was too polite to say. Jay also starred in Broken Badges, a Stephen Cannell CBS television production where he played a psychologically depressed police officer named Stanley Jones, who was also a ventriloquist. He has also appeared as a celebrity guest on many game shows and hosted two series of his own, So You Think You Got Troubles and Celebrity Charades. Jay's television roles also include a guest appearance in an episode of Mrs. Columbo where he played a ventriloquist who finds his dummy is acting independently of his will and kills the man who carved it. His post-Soap TV career included appearances on The Love Boat, Gimme a Break!, Simon & Simon, The Facts of Life, Empty Nest and Dave's World. In 1999, he reprised his role of Chuck Campbell in an episode of That 70's Show.
