(HawaiiNewsNow) - "Human sound-effects machine" Michael Winslow first achieved prominence on the standup comedy circuit in the early '80s. Winslow went on to a few TV guest spots, including an impressive "straight" role as an emotionally disturbed student on The White Shadow. His greatest fame lay not in dramatics, however, but in his awesome ability to create remarkably convincing sound effects -- police sirens, helicopters, machine gun fire, to name a few -- using nothing more than his voice. This singular skill was one of the few saving graces of the many Police Academy movie raunchfests of the 1980s, wherein Michael Winslow was cast as Sgt. Lavel Jones.
Michael, a master of vocal gymnastics, can imitate over 1000 sound effects using his voice alone. Whether he is recreating the frenzy of Jimmy Hendrix playing the guitar, or the roar of a jet plane, his talent is truly remarkable and his versatility admirable and enjoyable for all ages!
Currently you can also hear him in the Television Hits Robot Chicken and Family Guy. You cant miss him on those great "Geico" commercials. He also was in such classics as Spaceballs, Gremlins, Back to the Future, Part 3 and much more.
