Highlights

Alan Safier has a mid-range, decidedly non-announcery voice -- warm and compassionate, trustworthy and authoritative, friendly and approachable, sincere, empathetic and intelligent, believable and likable. Particularly good at talking directly to the listener, one-on-one. Age range: early 40s- late 50s. A definite texture to the voice.

Very funny, great with dialogue, and able to do a lot of dialects and character voices. Lots of Guy-Next-Door types, Dads, Husbands, Bosses. Also does a lot of health care spots -- his voice has that reassuring feeling to it.

He's also a trained singer, and has performed principal roles in over 25 musicals. Safier's vocal range is bari-tenor, and he's put his singing skills to use on many spots.

Dialects include (but are not limited to): New York, Brooklyn, American Southern, American Midwest, Standard British, Cockney, French, Italian, Indian, Irish, Russian, German, Hungarian and Yiddish.

He has been touring the US in the one-man show "Say Goodnight Gracie" as George Burns for the past eight years and tours with "Humbug!", his one-man musical version of "A Christmas Carol" during the holidays.

Experience

Alan Safier has been everything from the Kibbles 'n' Bits Dog to the voice of Turbo Tax. He's a theatre/television/film actor, so he approaches every voice over as if it were a role in a play or movie. He's THE guy if they want "real and natural," and if they don't want it too "announcer-y" or too "sell-y."

He booked his first voice over job when he was 18. In the ensuing years, he's done nearly 1,000 voice-overs.

Over the past 30 years, Safier has taught v/o workshops and has coached privately.
