The Voice Characters of Harry Shearer
Original Airdates: Nov. 12-14, 2021
TVC 559.6: Part 2 of a conversation that began last week with multi-award-winning actor, comedian, screenwriter, director, voice artist, and radio host Harry Shearer (The Simpsons, This is Spinal Tap, Le Show). Topics include Harry’s career as a voice artist, including when he first discovered his gift for mimicry, why he considers the voices he creates to be characters (versus impressions), and how long it takes Harry to hone down a particular voice before he feels ready to perform it. We also learn which Spinal Tap song is most popular among groupies of the band. Chuck Harter co-hosts.
Harry Shearer is the host of Le Show, a weekly, hour-long romp through the worlds of media, politics, sports, and show business that you can hear every week on NPR stations and other public stations throughout the U.S. and worldwide. It is also available for listening on demand as a podcast through many platforms, including Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and HarryShearer.com.
