The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon
Sep 10 2014
Cross one off the old bucket list. I can now say that my voice was on the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. I got to pretend to be Morgan Freeman and made people laugh. That’s pretty much the best thing ever.
How this transpired is not a particularly interesting story, but I suppose it’s a testament to my speed in responding to a request and delivering on a really great sounding bit of audio. Quite literally, one minute, I’m recording some narration for use at a young man’s Bar Mitzvah, and then next moment, I get the honor of my work appearing on the Tonight Show. If I’m not totally mistaken, that’s a similar trajectory of some very cool people who have appeared on the Tonight Show – Buddy Hackett, perhaps.
That old adage that simply showing up is a large part of any success is very true – but being tenacious and putting in the work to get good at something also doesn’t hurt.
If you’re not the Tonight Show, but you have a project that requires a voice over – a character, a specific style of voice, or a particular vibe – I’d be very happy to hear from you to talk about it.
