Chris is a stand-up comedian and versatile voice actor in commercials, promos, animation and more than 100 video game titles like playing Cid Highwind in Final Fantasy.

He describes what the life of a standup comic on the road is like and the way his comedy skills have helped him transition to working as a voice actor. He offers solid advice to those wanting to work in the voiceover business that includes getting stand-up experience, developing your acting chops and using your fear to motivate you to move forward. Chris talks about his 9th season working on The Simpsons doing a variety of different voices and explains the process of recording the episode from table read to ADR. Chris recalls the times when he and voice actor friend, Nolan North installed crown moulding to “make ends meet” as shares some of his other odd jobs he got fired from including the Whispering Canyon Café at DisneyWorld.
