I was recently a guest on "The Mitch Albom Show" on 760 WJR in Detroit--Not only as Donald Trump, but myself! It was fun talking to old friends and co-workers on the air there. I even threw in some local reference to the Trump jokes I used. And here's the bonus: Mom and Dad both listened and said they enjoyed it.
You know, being a voice actor, and recording voice-overs for a living, "recording" becomes the operative word. You get comfortable knowing you can record a take, then another, then delete, and record a voice-over again if you're not happy with it. That is not the case with live radio. You live in the moment. It's happening NOW. You have to commit. Even when you make a mistake, you have to own it, and keep plowing through.
Well, fresh off my CNN experience last week where I was featured in a report about people who do Donald Trump impressions(and in my case, people who make "How-To" videos about doing Donald Trump voice impressions) I called into the "Mark in the Morning" morning radio show on 100.3 The Sound in Los Angeles, where Mark wanted to congratulate me on my new publicity. But this was a staged bit, where instead of saying thank you as myself, I responded with 21 celebrity voice impressions. It was a lot of fun, and I thought I'd share the video of that phone call from my end of the line. Hope you enjoy it!
Did you have a chance to watch "I Am Cait" Sunday night on E! ? Well in case you didn't, My Caitlyn Jenner voice impression has been promoting it pretty hard on the radio. In fact, I blatantly give out so much detail(which we've completely made up because we don't watch it), my impersonation of Caitlyn Jenner basically tells you what happens in each episode. Take a listen for yourself, when I called up the "Mark in the Morning" radio program in Los Angeles on 100.3 The Sound:
Earlier today, Former President Jimmy Carter revealed in a short statement that he has cancer. Our thoughts and prayers go out to President Carter and his family.
I was fortunate to have the chance to speak with him over the phone during a radio interview, shortly after he won his Nobel Peace Prize in 2002. He was very kind with a quick wit, and an excellent sense of humor.
Here's an clip from that radio interview that aired on the Mojo in the Morning show, Channel 955 in Detroit:
