Often joking that he was voted “Most Likely To Be Someone Else” by his high school classmates, two-time Emmy winner Maurice LaMarche has been doing character voices and impressions since his childhood.
He started actually getting paid for it at the tender age of 19, when he began performing stand-up comedy at Toronto’s “Yuk Yuk’s” comedy club, launching his career at the same time as longtime friends Howie Mandel and Jim Carrey. Moving to Los Angeles in 1980, Maurice began a ten-year stint in stand-up, during which he served as the opening act for such performers as Rodney Dangerfield, George Carlin, and Kool & The Gang, as well as being showcased on HBO’s groundbreaking Rodney Dangerfield Presents The Ninth Annual Young Comedians Special in 1985. In that same year, he was cast as Chief Quimby in Inspector Gadget, and Egon Spengler in The Real Ghostbusters, in rapid succession. The voiceover work has kept coming ever since; Maurice has performed on over one hundred and fifty animated series, and has been Emmy-nominated five times for his voice talents. In 2011, he won the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Voice-Over Performance in Futurama, where he played a dozen regular (and about sixty recurring) characters, including Morbo The Newscaster, Calculon, The Donbot, Clamps, Hedonismbot, and Zapp Brannigan’s long-suffering sidekick, Kif Kroker. The following year he took home his second Emmy for Futurama in the same category, and he was nominated one last time for Matt Groening’s much-loved sci-fi cartoon in 2014.
Maurice is also frequently heard in the advertising world as the voice of Toucan Sam, the “spokesbird” for Kellogg’s Froot Loops, a part he’s played since 1987. Since 2009, he’s been the signature voice of the entire Lexus TV and radio campaign in the US.
