    Press Release:

    The world-famous Hollywood Improv is proud to invite you to join Emmy and Annie award winner Rob Paulsen as he talks about his experiences in voice acting!

    About Rob Paulsen:
    Born in Detroit, Rob Paulsen spent his childhood in Livonia and Rochester, attending Junior and Senior high school in Grand Blanc, Michigan. Rob loved cartoons like most kids but aspired to be a professional hockey player. “Fortunately, thanks to some big, strong, kid from Winnipeg who drilled me so hard my ears are still ringing, I learned around age 18 I had neither the talent nor the temperament to make a living playing hockey. So, I turned to my other passions: singing and acting.”

    The goal of bringing absolute believability to a fictional character, live-action or animated, is what every actor strives for. Those who are committed to their career and who combine experience, passion and skill are likely to succeed.

    Those gifted with exceptional talent who focus on maximizing their potential by finding their own niche, quickly break away from the pack. After years of honing their craft and consistently delivering memorable performances in which the character impacts an indelible image on the viewer, the public and the industry take notice, singling out the best.

    “I’m getting paid to do what I got in trouble for in the 7th grade,” jests Rob, who won a Daytime Emmy in 1999 as “Outstanding Performer in an Animated Program” for Pinky and The Brain (Warner Bros.) Though nominated twice previously, the victory was especially sweet due to some formidable competition – fellow nominees Louie Anderson, Ernest Borgnine, Dennis Franz and Jeffery Tambor. In addition to his Emmy, Rob won back-to-back Annie Awards in 1997 and 1998. “I absolutely love what I do and thank my lucky stars for twenty-five years of full-time employment in this business,” he says.

    “It’s a treat to portray a complex character,” Rob explains about Pinky, a goof-ball mouse with funny teeth, a head filled with clouds and an inane imagination that is punctuated with a staccato laugh. “Besides … where else could I find a job where emotional outbursts and odd exclamations like ‘Egad!,’ ‘Narf!,’ ‘Poit!,’ ‘Splonk!,’ and ‘Zort!’ are allowed and in fact, encouraged?” With over 2,000 half-hours of animation to his credit, Rob’s versatility shines in his starring roles as the voices of Yakko, Pinky and Dr. Scratch ‘n’ Sniff in the Peabody and two-time Emmy award-winning series “Animaniacs.”

    Some of Rob’s other well-known animated characters include Raphael of the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” Arthur in “The Tick,” the title role in “The Mask” (for a WHOLE lot less dough than Mr. Carrey, thank you), the title role in “Mighty Max,” Carl Wheezer in “Jimmy Neutron, Boy Genius,” Jack Fenton in “Danny Phantom,” Bobble in the “Tinkerbell” series of DVDs and hopefully more to come.

    Paulsen’s extensive credits include on-camera roles in numerous motion pictures including Body Double, Stewardess School, Eyes of Fire, The Perfect Match, and Warlocked. His television acting credits include guest-starring roles on MacGyver and St. Elsewhere. Additionally, he is one of the most sought-after voice actors in the commercial arena, performing in over 1000 commercial spots.

    As passionate about “paying it forward” as he is about his lucrative career, Rob supports various charitable organizations, particularly those benefiting children and military veterans. Rob’s volunteer work with GOALmodels has been particularly rewarding. GOALmodels, a high school program in Reseda, California, is designed to inspire 9th graders to set goals and overcome obstacles in life. Blending his life experiences with passion for his work, his presentations are informative, entertaining and inspiring. In his leisure time, Rob enjoys golf, riding his motorcycle and occasionally lacing up his skates for another chance to relive his past glory on the rink. He spends the majority of his free time with his wife, Parrish, and their two Yorkshire terriers, Pooshie and Tala.

    Claire Keane, a visual development artist at Walt Disney Animation Studios (where she made significant contributions to both Frozen and Tangled), appears at Powell’s City of Books on Saturday, July 25th at 11:00 AM to read from her highly anticipated debut picture book, Once Upon a Cloud (Dial Books).

    Celeste wants to give her mother something special — but what? As she drifts off to sleep, Celeste is swept away. Up, up, into the sky, where the sun, the moon, and the stars are eagerly awaiting her arrival. How grand! They receive her with such kindness that Celeste positively sparkles with delight. And on her way home, it comes to her: the perfect gift. Chosen with care and wrapped with love, it’s just what Celeste was hoping to find.

    THE X-FILES MEETS THE DA VINCI CODE!

    This is London, 1991. Lawyer Samuel Waterhouse investigates a ghoulish murder mystery set in alternate English history that’s all religious mania, secret societies and the plague. Imagine an England under religious rule – a rule so iron-fisted that science and technology has been set back decades…

    Das has worked in both film and advertising as a conceptual artist and writer for clients as varied as Walt Disney, Saatchi & Saatchi, Universal Pictures, BBH, and the BBC. He also worked at Neal Adams’ Continuity Associates in New York, and wrote a JAMES BOND series for Dark Horse, as well as being an art director at Cartoon Network. When writing RING OF ROSES he was working on a feature for Steven Spielberg, and developing the TV series, TALES OF BEATRIX POTTER. He is currently completing his first novel, a supernatural thriller called WINTER OF THE SUCCUBUS.

    John is a respected fine art painter, comic book artist, and visual development artist in film. After working on Ring of Roses, he moved to LA to develop TARZAN and ATLANTIS for Walt Disney. He has also worked for world-famous companies, including Saatchi & Saatchi, Ridley Scott Associates, Francis Ford Coppola, Dreamworks, Twentieth Century Fox and Disney. John drew SANDMAN MYSTERY THEATRE, BATMAN, and DEADMAN for Vertigo.
