Barking dogs, squishing, soggy sneakers, Jets roaring, spine tingling scratches from a chalkboard, radio noises, guitars screaming, cell phones - every noise you can imagine, Michael Winslow is a master of vocal gymnastics who can imitate over 1000 sound effects using his voice alone.
Born and raised on an Air force Base, the youngest of six brothers quickly started to imitate the sounds around him. After High School and a short-lived college stint he packed his bags and hitchhiked to Venice Beach where he would be homeless for a short while. He auditioned for the “Gong Show” hosted by the infamous Chuck Barris and won, went to Los Angeles with the winnings and started to perform at the local comedy clubs. His big break came in 1984 when director Hugh Wilson and producer Paul Manslanski saw him perform and wrote him into the script of the unforgettable “Police Academy I through VII”. The movies were a hit and so was Michael. Mel Brooks’ “Spaceballs” followed along with several voice-overs for Disney and Universal Studios. A unique comedian with a special talent, his versatility and high energy makes him a favourite in entertaining families across the world.
