Bob Bergen
Voice Actor and Coach
- Wednesday, June 28th from 6-9pm PDT -

Three-time Emmy nominated actor Bob Bergen announced to his parents when he was five he wanted to be Porky Pig. His mother replied, “Honey, you can't be Porky Pig. You're Jewish." Despite this, he was determined. At fourteen he phoned Mel Blanc after researching a dozen or so phone books, crashed a recording session pretending to be Blanc's assistant, and watched him in action. Realizing he needed training, and for his voice to change, he began studying voice-over with every vo coach LA had to offer. Combined with two years at a Meisner acting conservatory and three years of improv study with The Groundlings, he was able to secure an agent at eighteen and pursue his dream, while tour guiding at Universal Studios allowed him to eat. He's performed in all aspects of on-camera television: from sitcoms to soaps to game shows - hosting Jep!, the kids' version of Jeopardy! for Game Show Network. 

His voice is heard in thousands of commercials, promos, games, animated series and specials. He's voiced dozens of animated features, including Minions: The Rise of Gru, Sing, Wreck it Ralph, The Secret Life of Pets, Trolls, Tangled, Spirited Away, Cars, A Bug's Life, Monsters, Inc., Iron Giant, The Emperor's New Groove, WALL-E, Toy Story 2 & 3, and Up. Recent series work includes Star Wars: The Bad Batch, Ridley Jones, Marvel's Avengers Assemble, Robot Chicken, Oddballs, I am Groot, Bugs Bunny Builders, Animaniancs, It’s Pony, Spidey and his Amazing Friends, Blaze and the Monster Machines, Pretzel and the Puppies. 2023 marks his 33rd year voicing Porky Pig. He currently stars as Porky in over 200 new Looney Tunes Cartoons shorts on Max.  Bob is also one of the most sought after coaches for animation voiceover.  In January, 2024 he and Mary Lynn Wissner will be teaching on their 2nd VO Cruise, round trip from San Francisco.  This is a Mexican Riviera cruise with 5 full days of animation, commercial and marketing voiceover workshops.  https://www.bobbergen.com/Cruise/VO_Cruise_2024.pdf
