Chad Taylor

Comedy, Character, Everyman, Funny, Guy Next Door

Voice Description

Baseline voice quality has scratchy, yet rich tones and a naturally fast cadence, with an evident quick wit.

Good at character work, humorous to serious. Could play the hero or villain.

Fortunately, the Pittsburgh accent is gone, though it can be called out for comedic effect.
