Bob August

Trustworthy, Characters, Dialects, Slightly Insane

Voice Description

If you're looking for that nice guy from across the street, give me a try. I can sound warm & trustworthy. I can be serious & concerned. (Technical copy & medical jargon are specialties.) My niche is "confident and professional, yet friendly and approachable."

On the flip side, I've been the voice of several car dealerships so high energy / hard sell auditions are always welcome. In addition, I do character voices, dialects & vocal impressions.

I'm a lousy dancer.
