      EVENT DETAILS
      Michael Winslow

      Michael Winslow had his first television appearance on The Gong Show in which he squeezed in sound-a likes of Benji the movie dog, Star Trek, and Jimi Hendrix’s “Purple Haze”. Winslow, who was born on September 6, 1958 in Spokane, Washington, played the role of the Radar Operator, who was in charge of the radar and could imitate realistic sounds using his own voice. He is best known for his role as Sgt. Larvelle “Motor Mouth” Jones in the Police Academy series of movies and TV shows. In 1985, Island released a 12″ of Michael Winslow titled “I Am My Own Walkman”. He also appeared as a radar operator in the movie Spaceballs, in which he performs all the sound effects during his scene himself. Mel Brooks (who wrote, directed, produced, and co-starred in the film), stated that by doing so, Winslow saved the film money. Winslow is also a motivational speaker. Since the fall of 2008, Winslow has hosted the motion picture television series called “Way Back Wednesday with Winslow” on the cable super station WGN America, which features movies mostly released in the 1980s. Michael continues to perform stand-up comedy around the globe.
