Biography

"Human sound-effects machine" Michael Winslow first achieved prominence on the standup comedy circuit in the early '80s. The African-American Winslow went on to a few TV guest spots, including an impressive "straight" role as an emotionally disturbed student on The White Shadow. His greatest fame lay not in dramatics, however, but in his awesome ability to create remarkably convincing sound effects -- police sirens, helicopters, machine gun fire, to name a few -- using nothing more than his voice.

His first television appearance was on The Gong Show in which he squeezed in spot-on sound-alikes of Benji the movie dog, Jimi Hendrix, and Led Zeppelin's "Immigrant Song". He is best known for his role as Sgt. Larvelle "Motor Mouth" Jones in the Police Academy series of movies and TV shows. In 1985, Island released a 12" of Michael Winslow titled "I Am My Own Walkman". Winslow is also a motivational speaker. Since the fall of 2008, Winslow has hosted the motion picture television series called "Way Back Wednesday with Winslow" on the cable superstation WGN America, which features movies mostly released in the 1980s. Michael continues to perform stand-up comedy around the globe.

Michael Winslow debuted his own iPhone and iPod Touch apps in 2010, bringing his sound effects and comedy to a mobile platform. ThatsKungFu generates Winslow's kung fu fighting sounds when the device is swung in a fighting motion.  NoizeyMan, regarded as the "World's Noiziest App", contains video, ringtones, sound effects, and mini games, all created by Michael Winslow.
