Episode 054 – Jamie Alcroft

Welcome to another episode of The HERO Show. I am your host Richard Matthews, (@AKATheAlchemist) and you are listening to episode #54 with Jamie Alcroft – The Splendours of Voice Acting & Comedy and Living Life for Two.

Jamie Alcroft entertained audiences as one-half of the comedy duo Mack & Jamie for over 35 years. His appearances with Mack on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson and Jay Leno lead to 125 original episodes of the syndicated half-hour COMEDY BREAK WITH MACK & JAMIE. Jay Leno said, “…Mack and Jamie are at the top. They are the funniest duo, working today!”

Jamie is also in the elite corps of LA Voice Actors. Providing voices for many National Commercials, plus The Simpsons, Rugrats, Power Beach, Justice League, Adam Sandler’s Eight Crazy Nights and scores of Video Games, most recently Gears of War I & II & III & IV, Transformers Halo, and numerous film looping for celebrities such as Sean Connery, Harrison Ford and even John Lennon.

Jamie was named “Westlake Village Citizen of the Year” for his successful fundraising for area schools. He has been named one of the “Top 25 Most Influential People in Ventura County.” He can be seen on YOUTUBE, with Phil Proctor of Firesign Theatre, by going to BOOMERS ON A BENCH.

Jamie recently published THE TIN MAN DIARIES which recounts his adventures at Cedars Sinai as he received a new heart and liver. He has since become an Ambassador for One Legacy/Donate Life and he speaks to groups about Organ Donorship.

Here’s just a taste of what we talked about today:

  • What is the business aspect of voice acting?
  • Discovering the luxuries of running a voice over business.
  • As a voice actor, your agent is your source of work.
  • Make use of the protection that the agency you work for can provide.
  • The journey from silversmithing, to radio voice acting, to comedy, and back again to voice acting and podcasting.
  • The superhero who saved Jamie from congestive heart failure.
  • A superhero will do the right thing at the right time.
  • If you need to share something on stage, you have a secret to share and that gives you a superpower.
  • Laughter – may not be the best – but it is a good medicine.
  • If you can extrapolate, exaggerate, and surprise, then you’ve got comedy!
  • Your life partner knows more about you than anyone else.
  • Follow the right path and pay attention to the signals from the cosmos.
