Piotr Michael is an actor, voice aRTIST and comedic performer
Born in Southern California and raised across the United States, Piotr Michael grew up in a very creative and artistic family. His father, a master of mime, masks and puppetry, encouraged him to pursue the performing arts, and Piotr gained experience performing for audiences across the country, from the Midwest to Hawaii. With a career interest in animation, he honed his unique ability to mimic and developed his skills in voice acting. Piotr then shared his talents online, earning keen eyes and ears within the entertainment industry.
Through the persistence of his passion, a dedication to the craft, and focused study on comedy and acting, Piotr has gained an incredible wealth of experience and expertise. He is an alumni of The Groundlings’ Sunday Company, where he wrote and performed new original sketches and characters every week at the historic comedy theater. Piotr has steadily worked professionally as an on-camera actor, comedian and voice actor, and is known as one of the most versatile impressionists in the business.
Since 2014, Piotr has been heard on the "Howard Stern Show", impersonating many notable celebrities like George Takei, Robert Stack, Bernie Sanders, Michael Caine, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Simon Cowell, Mel Gibson, Leonard Nimoy, Charlie Sheen, and even Donald Trump. Also in that year, Piotr had a supporting role in the comedy series, "Impress Me", where he played a fictionalized version of himself. Later in 2016, Piotr joined the cast of the revived comedy series "MADtv", as the “impressions guy”, performing as celebrities and characters in the outrageous sketch show.
With his unique vocal range, Piotr does a fair amount of cartoon voice work, as well as being called upon to voice-match actors and celebrities for film looping and dubbing, commercials, promos and trailers. He is often sought after to perform as characters far beyond his physical age, and sometimes leaves producers wondering if the wrong guy walked into their session, until he gets behind the microphone.
Piotr's talents have been utilized by many studios and entertainment groups nationally and internationally, including Walt Disney Studios, Universal Studios, DreamWorks Animation, Warner Brothers, Comedy Central, TBS, FOX, Cartoon Network, BBC Radio, Ubisoft, Activision, Blizzard Entertainment, THQ, and Square Enix, among many others.

Most recently, Piotr can be heard as the lead villain, "Fearless Leader" in the Dreamworks reboot of "The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle", and “Oogway” in “Kung Fu Panda: The Paws Of Destiny” both streaming on Amazon Prime. Also, look forward to the summer of 2019, “Where’s Waldo?” debuts on the cable channel Universal Kids, with Piotr Michael voicing the cast member “Fritz”, a mischievous talking ferret .
