Charles Fleischer

Comedian, voice artist
Best known as the voice of Roger Rabbit, Charles Fleischer's multi-decade career includes work on stage and on screen, and an online emporium of unusual observations called MonkeyDog.

Why you should listen

Stand-up comedian and voice artist Charles Fleischer hit his stride in the '80s with voice roles in the live action-animation hybrid Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, building a prolific career of roles in cartoons and feature films in the decades since.

But perhaps he found his true calling in more recent years, discovering an interesting relationship between the numbers 27 and 37, which (he tells us) affect everything, as he says, "from protons to neutrons to croutons." This "blueprint for infinity" is called Moleeds, and he explains it in detail on his website, MonkeyDog.

Currently, he runs a media company in Southern California, and contributes writing to television and film.

I’m thinking the universe is either a dodecahedron or a cheeseburger. And for me, that’s a win-win.
