Often voices slobs or characters with one track minds
Deep monotone voice with deadpan delivery.
I need to lose some weight. I'm getting really fat. But I'm getting older, and I just can't stop eating wonderful food. Rich, wonderful food.
I never pursued acting with, like, auditions. If anything, I was given roles by people who knew me and liked what I did.
It's physically hard for me to work. I start to break down, physically. My joints start. I get weepy eyes. I don't sleep well. I was never a hard worker, I guess. So the voiceover work ethic is really great for me - couple days a month, two hours a day.
Cute girls and burgers. What more can you ask for? That's why we live in America.
I'm not opposed to putting myself in danger for meaningless comedy.
I've learned to wait 'til an idea is worth making. That's not really a lesson I've learned; I sort of always did it that way. But there's no reason or need to make videos prior to when you make a show, because then you need material for it.
I've never worked for a show or was on a show where I didn't have a lot of control creatively, but then again, I haven't worked on a lot of shows.
I started doing comedy with no plan to do voice work. Voice work came as a function of doing comedy and meeting people who eventually develop shows like that. I didn't seek out from an early age to be on cartoons.
If you do nothing long enough, something's bound to happen.
