About Michael Trupiano

"Thanks so much for all your hard work this weekend. It really was a pleasure to shoot with you and I'm very aware that the weekend could have panned out quite differently had you not been so excellent with your lines. So we were very lucky with you!"

Claudia Lee, head of production at Regiepapst Medienproduktion GmbH

I'm a dry comedic Midwestern American performer with a bass-baritone voice.

Specialties: deadpan, physical comedy, confusion - see my commercials for proof. Excel at playing arrogant, incompetent authority figures. Leslie Nielsen fan.

I've performed comedy improvisation and standup in Chicago, New York City and Berlin. A few of my improv teachers were Amy Poehler, Matt Walsh and Charna Halpern.

I do documentary narrations and English language dubbing. I also record audiobook projects in my home studio.

Und mein Deutsch ist nicht schlecht. Sag mir, wo die Blumen sind, bitte.
