Here’s a recent VO I did for the Alzheimer’s Society’s Big Win Weekly Lottery. We did various versions, for TV and online so you may well see it at some point soon! Good cause an’ all.
So I know you much prefer it when you can hear my voice but not see my face, so here’s the #RecycleWeek #UnusualSuspects videos that came out this week. I’m doing the voice of the detective on the phone, and the main VOs at the end. They’ve got Ewen McIntosh (Keith from The Office) in them. Watch all 4 episodes right here!
Back in March I did some voice work for the new Total War: Warhammer video game. The game came out in May but the voices I did were for the Beastmen DLC (downloadable content as I learned) which came out on July 28th. The reason I’m only posting this now is that A) I signed an NDA, and B) I got a bit behind with posting stuff because of the baby (see last post!). Funnily enough I was due to work on another big video game on that very release date (July 28th), but my girlfriend went into labour 2 weeks before the due date so we had to reschedule! Oh well. I’ll tell you more about that game when that’s all out there!
In the meantime, that’s the Beastmen trailer right there. To be honest, I have no idea if any of my voice is in there (apart from the obvious, it is pitched down), and I’ll probably to struggle to identify myself in any uploaded gameplayso if anyone does find any gameplay on Youtube, pitches up a Beastman voice and thinks it’s me, do let me know!

So here’s the first online advert for Love Island that I recorded for ITV the other week. You’d never guess that I did the main VO and the voice of the Small Talkulator itself would you?!
Here’s me being very professional and taking a photograph of myself in ITV studios today, having just recorded some VO for some comedy online adverts for the new series of Love Island. Probably can’t say much more than that at the moment but don’t you worry, I won’t shut up about it once they’re out there.
I know I’ve posted a lot of stuff about Doubleshot this year but I did do a load of stuff for them! The last two videos I did for them, which were actually quick little voiceovers, are now released here! I’m sure it’s just a coincidence that the guy in the videos is bald.

hi guys! So what’s new with you? OK I’ll talk about me for a bit. You probably thought that after my amazing, arguably scene stealing (double scene stealing as I was in two scenes) appearance on The Delivery Man that I’d decided to quit at the top. Retire undefeated if you will. Well no, don’t worry. I’ve just been doing stuff a bit more behind the scenes and haven’t really had the time or motivation to update this blog that nobody reads.
Anyway, my good friend and collaborator Luke Kaile kindly gave me a cameo in his new dark short The Dependents, which is a kind of precursor to his feature The Criminal Audition. This short is also directed by Sam Gridley and features Noeleen Comiskey and Scott Samain. I had some nice little scenes where I could mess around with some blood and knifes in a darkly comic manner, and chase an actress across a field. Should be entered into festivals soon I hear.
Luke, Sam and I have also been working on series 2 scripts for our award winning web series All in the Method. I think it’s coming on really well and I’m actually really looking forward to trying to get that off the ground soon. The idea is an 8 episode series with an arc, but with individual genres for each episode a bit like what we played with in the last 2 epsiodes of the last series. Watch this space…
In June I signed with a new voice agent – Loud & Clear Voices. Jamie is doing a great job for me, getting me castings for video games and the odd TV advert job.. that’s right guys. I recently did a voiceover for a Property Partner advert which should be out soon I think. I also did a voiceover for a Carphone Warehouse advert a few weeks ago but I don’t know when that’s coming out.
I spent quite a lot of July hurriedly catching Edinburgh previews (Lou Sanders, Katia Kvinge, Ali Brice etc) before being cast in the Lidl christmas advert (get the blog title now?) Quite a big thing really – lots of improv and hopefully some nice comedy moments have come out of it despite it being one hell of a shoot! That should air in October I understand until christmas, on TV and in cinemas. I should point out that I had a really great time working with some great actors on that shoot – Ben Green (already a good friend of mine), Martin Collins (previously a FB friend!), Sandy Foster (who was in the same series of McDonalds adverts as me), Katy Schutte, Cicely Giddings, Rosanna Lambe, and dear old Colin Manford (brother of Jason).
But perhaps most exciting of all, is the new podcast Sam LeGassick and I have started… the accompaniment to the hugely successful Rich Keeble Vanity Project… I give you… the Rich Keeble Vanity Podcast! Available now on iTunes, and Soundcloud for free. You’re welcome.
