Eric Lyden

Rich, Smooth, Sarcastic, Sexy

Voice Description

I've been doing spot-on celebrity impressions as well as character voices in my stand-up comedy performances since 1996. As well as well before I 'Officially' became a professional comedian.

I also know so many people claim they do 'Really great' celebrity impressions as well as 'Awesome character voices'... but when you hear them you're shaking your head and thinking 'Are you doing McConaughey if he had a cold and if he was a 15 year old girl?'. So I've always said you're welcome to actually call me directly to hear for yourself if my impressions and characters are accurate and worth your time and investment.

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

Some of the accents I do regularly include British, Eastern European, and Russian.

Some of the celebrity impressions I do are... Mathew McConaghey, Sean Connery, Sylvester Stallone, Christopher Walken, Arnold Swarzenegger, Mel Gibson, Peter Griffin from Family Guy, Santa Claus from the Ruldolph special.

And because of years of stand-up both on and off-stage I can and have created several character voices including the one I used in the 'Slomin's Shield' clay-mation commercials that are still running after 3 years.

Most people in VO as well as comedy describe my natural voice as 'gravely and resonant with a built-in sarcasm'. I've been compared to Sam Elliot and to the sportscaster Al Michaels.

My Voice Experience

Most of experience up until recently had been on stage as part of my stand-up performances which included... celebrity impressions... character voices including regional accents from all over the world. And my own naturally deep and sarcastic sounding voice that matches my style of material.
