Bio

Greg Berg’s voice is immediately recognizable as Donatello from the 80s & 90s cartoon, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Little Fozzie from Muppet Babies, that ran on Saturday mornings for 9 years during that stretch of time. But the comedic actor and voice talent who has done scores of roles, actually feels one of his biggest breaks was doing the voice of a "honey drop" for a Golden Graham Cereal commercial, and who has been known to sit in a corner and talk to himself in several different voices? For Berg, this is the only way of life he knows. All of this because Greg Berg can do more than 100 voices and impressions and at least 13 dialects, and he does them all over radio, television, film and interactive projects, as well as at the local comedy clubs and amusement parks. Berg's voice-over credits include such popular television shows as The Simpsons , American Dad, and on film in Gnomes and Trolls , Disney's Chicken Little , The Wild , and Toy Story . Greg has also provided voices for such prominent videogames including Desperate Housewives, Everquest, and provided voice matching for Playtime with Noddy. Berg’s impressions range from John Travolta to Casey Kasem to Robin Williams to Gilbert Gottfried. Berg was a regular for more than 20 years on the very popular personality Rick Dees' radio show providing various characters, including John Revolting- who can also be heard on the Rick Dees Grammy Nominated Album "Hurt Me Baby Make Me Write Bad Checks". Dees Says of Berg,"Greg is very talented and one of those gifted people who's a pleasure to work with." Dees continues a bit more sarcastically, "Greg is one of the most talented guys I've met this hour, and he has no chance of making it." Additionally, Berg has appeared with Dees at his various live local stage shows. His characterizations include nerds, surfers, robots and foreigners. After growing up in Cleveland and Akron, Ohio, where he worked his way up from the control panel to D.J. then to a spot as a producer of a celebrity talk show. Berg made the move to Los Angeles in 1978. His training at the prestigious Harvey Lembeck Comedy Workshop and the Second City Los Angeles Performers Group has led to appearances at local well-known clubs such as The Comedy Store and the Laugh Factory, performing with improvisation groups or trying new voice routines.
