Voice Actor Rob Paulsen is touring LA to promote his new book "Voice Lessons" By: De Waal & Associates 10/16 @ 7PM PST - Barnes and Noble, The Grove Los Angeles, CA We all grew up watching characters brought to life by Rob Paulsen - Pinky from Pinky and the Brain and Yakko from Animaniacs, Raphael from the original animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles... the list goes on. With over 2,000 credits to his name along with an Emmy and a Peabody Award, Rob is a bonafide legend in the voice acting community. In his memoir VOICE LESSONS Rob tells the story of how he went from living in the suburbs of Detroit, to a roving performer, to booking his first gig, to making it big in the voice acting world. In February 2016, Paulsen was diagnosed with Stage III throat cancer, which threatened his livelihood and almost robbed the world of future joy the likes of which he has brought to the small and big screen for decades. Thankfully, his cancer went into remission and the long process of recovery could begin. Humble and ever-thankful for the support and love from his fans (just take a trip over to his Twitter account), Paulsen went right back to doing what he loves, voicing animated characters across television and film. He brings with him a renewed sense of vigor and interest in his craft, plus a constant appreciation for his fans - the people who helped him enjoy a career spanning more than three decades. Chock-full of "voice lessons," Rob's story proves to be an inspiration for anyone battling an illness, striving to make it big in their careers, or anyone who is currently trying to overcome personal battles in their own lives. For cartoon-loving fans, this book is also laden with humorous behind-the-scenes stories and anecdotes featuring big names in Hollywood that will delight any devotee to the fandom. ABOUT VOICE LESSONS: Voice Lessons tells the heartwarming and life-affirming story of Rob's experience with an aggressive cancer treatment and recovery regimen, which luckily led to a full recovery. Rob quickly returned to doing what he loves most, but with a much deeper appreciation of what he came so close to losing. His new lease on life inspired him to rededicate himself to his fans, particularly the new friends he made along the way: hundreds of sick children and their families. Rob said it best himself: "I can not only continue to make a living, but make a difference, and I can't wait to use that on the biggest scale that I can.”
