About Michael Winslow:
Michael Winslow is an American actor, comedian and beat boxer billed as The Man of 10,000 Sound Effects for his ability to make realistic sounds using only his voice. He is best known for his roles in all seven Police Academy films as Sargent Larvelle Jones. Winslow was born in Spokane, Washington, the son of Verdie and Robert Winslow. He grew up at Fairchild Air Force Base near Spokane, and later attended the Lisa Maile School of Acting, Modeling and Imaging.
According to his own account, Winslow had few friends growing up due to constantly moving around. To pass time, he would imitate the sounds of engines, animals, nature, anything that made noise. Following his high school and college periods, he performed in nightclubs and theaters, where his sound imitation skills won him positive appraisal and enough money to move to and perform his act in Hollywood. In 1987, Winslow 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." Some other notable roles Winslow has acted in were, Robot Chicken, The Love Boat (TV Series), Cheech and Chong's Next Movie as well as voicing characters in the movie Gremlins (1984).
