With all the recent internet brouhaha over the Futurama recasting (which I’ve added yet more updates to my article in the last two days), I thought for a change of pace I’d show some of the lesser-known talents of Futurama cast members, starting with John DiMagggio (voice of Futurama’s Bender, Flexo, Elzar, etc.).
Besides being a great character voice actor, John’s also a stand-up comedian, a skilled “beatboxer” (vocal percussionist), singer, and musician as these videos illustrate:
– John performing live with indie rockers Common Rotation:
– John performs the “Superchargers” theme song at Comic-Con 2008:
– John performs stand-up and beatboxes at Jam in the Dam 2008 [Caution: Adult Language]:
[Special thanks to Save The Voices of Futurama Petition founder Dave LaFaive for bringing the Common Rotation video to my attention.]
