Laughter for All Podcast with Comedian Nazareth

For decades, audiences of all ages have enjoyed Bill Farmer’s standout work in vehicles and venues as diverse as his talents - from clubs to conventions, broadcasts to podcasts, and TV screens to movie screens. What began in the standup comedy clubs of America’s heartland has become one of the most colorful careers in Hollywood, with a seemingly endless list of live and recorded performances engaging fans of every demographic. While Bill has famously performed as the official voice of Disney’s Goofy and Pluto since 1986, his sterling voice-acting resume includes thousands of leading and supporting roles in film, television, advertising, consumer products and more. For his unparalleled body of animation-voice work with such leading studios as Pixar, Warner Brothers, Universal and MGM, Bill became the first voice actor to receive the prestigious Friz Freleng Lifetime Achievement Award for Excellence in Animation. Equally distinguished is the immortalizing Disney Legend Award (recognizing individuals whose unique talents have helped shape the Disney legacy), which Bill received with entertainment icons Robin Williams and Betty White. Further adding to Bill’s many honors is the 2015 Annie Award for best acting in a television series and an Emmy nomination for his memorable performances in the hit animated series “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.” Bill  can currently be seen on television in Disneys Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Amphibia, The Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse, and as host and executive producer on It’s a Dog’s Life with Bill Farmer on Disney Plus, to name a few.  To help others reach their performance potential, Bill teaches voice-acting students, produces voice-actor demos and offers private coaching through his own production company, Toonhouse, Inc.

MZNOW with Michael Zavala

Disney legend, Bill Farmer talks about his new Disney+ series, It's A Dog's Life. Bill has been the voice of Goofy for over 30-years and is now stepping out, in front of the camera. Plus, Sara Alban joins the show to talk about her new life in New Orleans. Then later, Michael ventures out for the first time since lockdown and reveals why he now regrets it.Isn't [voice acting] the greatest gig in the world?"Yeah, it really is. I love doing it. I've been very fortunate to have such a great series of characters that I've been able to do and to stay busy all these years. I mean, luckily, I don't look the same that I did 33 years ago, but I sound the same. So you can do it for a long time."Now, you're going in front of the camera to meet the dogs in real life."Absolutely. It's a little change. Most actors, get into animation, like Tom Hanks or whoever. No one goes the other way. Now it's an animation actor going in front of the camera."What's the premise of the show?"I've been voicing Disney dogs for 30 years. Now, I'm stepping out from behind the microphone to find out about real working dogs and the amazing jobs that dogs do to help mankind. There's just so many things that dogs can and do on a regular basis, I had no idea about it. It's totally been an amazing experience to put the show together."What kind of dogs do you have?"I have a black lab pit bull mix named,  Boo, who's the sweetest thing. We call her Boo cause she's scared of everything. She's scared of balloons, bubbles, and things like that. And then a little Westie mix named, Roxy. She's got kind of more of the street attitude. She had been living on the street for about nine months when we got her. So she's kind of a tough little thing."It's A Dog's Life with Bill Farmer is streaming now on Disney+.
