Roger Scott has been making his living in voiceover and also teaching up and coming voiceover talent for over twenty years. He's also worked in the on-camera world of commercials and TV and film in that same period of time, and has also written for every medium, including animation.
His voiceover specialty is comedy, and while he can't make you funny, if you've got a pulse he can help you locate and develop the funny you've got. In a previous life he was a high-school speech teacher, so there will be handouts, but no mimeographs
