Michael Winslow Returns To Australia This July and August

Get your eardrums ready for a hodge-podge of sound, voices and comedy as Hollywood’s Man of 10,000 voices returns to Australia this winter by popular demand.

Embarking on his most extensive stand-up Australian tour to date, ‘human sound-effects machine’ Michael Winslow, will be showcasing his incredible talent in Brisbane, Gold Coast, Penrith, Revesby, Mulgrave, Geelong, Doncaster, Chelsea Heights, Hallam, Mount Evelyn, Hobart, Darwin, Adelaide, Yarraville and Wollongong.

The master of vocal gymnastics sold out all nine Yarraville Club performances when he was last here in Australia for Melbourne International Comedy Festival two years ago. He also garnered rave reviews along the way including a four-star review from the Herald Sun.

Winslow broke to prominence on the stand-up circuit in the early 80s after doing voiceovers for both Disney and Universal Studios for films like Back to the Future and Terminator.

His portrayal as Sgt. Larvelle “Motor Mouth” Jones in the Police Academy movie series made him a household name, a role specifically created to showcase his vocal talents. Notably, his is the only character to appear in all instalments of Police Academy.

Audiences were also stunned by Winslow’s incredible ability to create remarkably convincing sound effects – machine gun fire, helicopters, a harmonica, police sirens – using nothing more than his voice. More recently, Winslow has been animated (and voiced himself!) on The Simpsons and Family Guy, and his in-demand talents have been showcased on countless video games and apps.

Winslow’s live show is not your ordinary stand-up comedy routine – a mix of impersonations, impressions, story-telling, music and sound effects. His signature renditions of rock gods like Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin, as well as a re-enactment of an entire Star Wars battle scene, have made Winslow’s live show a ‘must-watch’ performance.

Don’t miss icon of comedy’s golden age, Michael Winslow, live this winter.
