Roger Craig Smith, voice actor and stand-up comedian, made it a special day at Seacrest Studios when he visited Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC.) Voice of Ripslinger from Disney’s Planes, Batman in Arkham Origins, and Sonic the Warhol; to name a few, his talent for comedy did not limit the amount of laughter coming from both patients and Seacrest Studios staff.
Hopping from one patient room to another, Smith signed personal autograph copies of Disney’s Planes, while also showcasing hilarious impersonations of Ripslinger and Sonic the Hedgehog. From wearing a hospital gown and gloves for some patients, playing occasional games of air hockey, to leaving personal autographs for those absent from their rooms, he tried his best to make each patient feel special.
During his interview in Seacrest Studios, Smith demonstrated his humbleness, as he talked about his career. Titled as “class clown” in 8th grade, followed by a profession in stand-up comedy after college, it only seemed right that he would end up as a voice actor. To this day, he still can’t believe he’s paid to come to work in jeans and a t-shirt just to make a variety of funny voices in front of a microphone.
Roger Craig Smith may be a big time voice actor with over 100 titles under his belt, but at the end of the day he does it for his passion of bringing out smiles and laughter—the ultimate healing. Many thanks to Roger, for making it such a fun day at CHOC!
