Yesterday, I checked out this documentary on Netflix, called “I Know That Voice”. In essence, the documentary highlights the careers of many talented voice actors, both present and past. One of the actors that was spotlighted on this documentary goes by the name of John DiMaggio. If you Google him, you will be surprised by the amount of work this guy has put in over the years. Nevertheless, the documentary showed a snippet of a character he played in this animated short. I immediately fell in love with what I saw and began my YouTube quest to find out everything I could about what this “thing” was. Turns out it’s a series of shorts called, “Off the Curb”, which is very reminiscent of the kind of conversations you hear in a barbershop.
I love everything about this. Why am I JUST now finding out about this?!
The other characters portrayed are below. All VERY talented as well.
