Why Book Bill Farmer?
For decades, audiences of all ages have enjoyed Bill Farmer's standout work in vehicles and venues as diverse as his talents from clubs to conventions, broadcasts to podcasts, and TV screens to movie screens.
What began in the standup comedy clubs of America's heartland has become one of the most colorful careers in Hollywood, with a seemingly endless list of live and recorded performances engaging fans of every demographic.
While Bill has famously performed as the official voice of Disney's Goofy and Pluto since 1986, his sterling voice-acting resume includes thousands of leading and supporting roles in film, television, advertising, consumer products and more.
For his unparalleled body of animation-voice work with such leading studios as Pixar, Warner Brothers, Universal and MGM, Bill became the first voice actor to receive the prestigious Friz Freleng Lifetime Achievement Award for Excellence in Animation. Equally distinguished is the immortalizing Disney Legend Award (recognizing individuals whose unique talents have helped shape the Disney legacy), which Bill received with entertainment icons Robin Williams and Betty White. Further adding to Bill's many honors is an Emmy nomination for his memorable performances in the hit animated series, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.
Currently in production is The 7D a new Disney-animated TV series conceived as an irreverent prequel to the landmark film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, with Bill now voicing the role of Doc.
Never straying from his comedy roots, Bill and his more than 100 celebrity impressions and dialects has continued to thrill adult audiences with standup routines at clubs and corporate events, and through his monthly improvisational performances with Fred Willard's sketch-comedy group, The MoHo's, at Hollywood's Second City Theater.
To help others reach their performance potential, Bill teaches voice-acting students, produces voice-actor demos and offers private coaching through his own production company, Toonhouse, Inc.
