Michael Winslow: The Man Of 1000 Voices
Show type: Edinburgh Fringe 2011
A true Hollywood legend, best known for playing Sgt ‘Motor Mouth’ Jones in the hugely successful Police Academy films, is coming to the Fringe this August for a month of staggering special effects, astounding sounds and a whirlwind of a show like nothing you have seen or heard before.
He was the voice of Stripe in Stephen Spielberg’s Gremlins, and star in Mel Brooks’ Spaceballs, you can also see and hear him in various episodes of Family Guy, King Of The Hill, The Simpsons, and robot Chicken. The original vocal artist of the 20th century, Michael Winslow can imitate the impossible using only his voice. Whether it’s the frenzy of Jimmy Hendrix playing the guitar or a special treat for Star Wars fans, Michael is the master of vocal gymnastics.
