Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

Non-accented North America, American regional accents, Irish (various regions), British (various regions), Scottish as well as other European and Asian.

Recent characters have included a "Drunk Irish Singer" in the new Christian Slater/Cuba Gooding film "Lies and Illusions", an over the top Oakey folk-singer for an animatronic, and a foul mouthed but lovable New York Jewish ex-vaudeville beaver (yes, the animal) for a cable network pilot. (Still under non-disclosure). I'm more known for authoritative reads, but sometimes I think this is where I really shine. Need a character voice? Just fill me in and I'll make one.
