HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
"Well kown as 'The Original Character & Imitation Specialist', Mike's great range of voice over styles, Characters and amazingly accurate Celebrity imitations is something that must be experienced.
He has a comprehensive understanding and actual experience in nearly every aspect of commercial, audio and visual production, from soundtrack scoring to motion picture sound design & visual effects, writing, editing, and conception. Put Mike in front of nearly any Script, Silent Video, or Animation, and trust that he’ll know what voices and sounds are most effective for the job. His mic control is part of his art, with an ability to read to live video like few others! He takes direction with precision, and is one of the few talents on the planet who can deliver multiple voices in a single project without being detected as the same talent; a further testament to his incredible range and skill."
Well...he says it better than I can. lol. I'm greatful to be in the business.
I'm hired where voice acting is desired for a particular effect, character realism or presence. Be it Ethnic voices, Accents, Nice guys, Bad guys, Moms, Dads, Teens, Queens or in-betweens.
As a stand-up comic, I'm able lend a professional sense of humor and comedic timing to the production.
As an actor, I can lend that valuable hard-to-find realism to straight reads and serious characters with great effect!
My work is all about the effect on the listener/watcher/consumer. Keep them well entertained, and the product has more success!
I have many straight read styles...but character work is my particular specialty and passion. It's a lot more demanding, but it's a hell of a lot more fun! Especially when working, live, with other talents.
Please visit www.mikekaminski.com for additional voices and info.
I currently provide specialty voice work, world wide, for commercials, animations, and Radio/TV promo work.
Glad to be here!

Mike, I hope you enjoyed your birthday half as much as I enjoyed checking out your YouTube material on your VU page and all the rest of material posted on your official website! My personal favorites were your imitations of the Simpsons, Governor Schwarzenegger, Rush Limbaugh, and your “Voices on the Phone” –They were pure genius! Keep up the great work!
As for my acting with Chris…it was a long time ago (1978). He starred as Richard II in Shakespeare’s play of the same title, and I played Sir Stephen Scroop and Lord Berkeley. We shared a great scene together in which he almost hit me for being the bearer of bad news. He was and is a brilliant actor. One day, when he noticed me visibly worried backstage after having forgotten a line, he kindly asked me what was wrong. After I told him, he reassured me that he hadn’t noticed my adlib and didn’t think anyone else did. Our director Dr. Richard Burgwin, however, was quick to inform me that he noticed the adlib. So much for Chris’ reassurance!
Thanks for writing back, and taking an interest in old history –it was fun recalling those days. Working with great actors like Chris and the late Nick Pennell was an unforgettable, educational experience. I hope to someday have the opportunity of working with you. Your vocal talent is truly amazing!
Hey Mike....its been a long time! I just watched your Simpsons anniversary video where you did Homer in front of the writers & I literally laughed my tail off--- Great stuff!! Miss having you on our station. As Homer would say "Stupid corporate budgets!!!.... Hope you are well! BRIAN, KSTZ, Des Moines.
