Bobcat Goldthwait Is Now Using His Real Voice on Stage to Make People Laugh
Bobcat Goldthwait, known for his energetic stage persona, has moved on from his unique high-pitched voice; he now uses his real voice for stand-up comedy.
Goldthwait is Back - with His Real Voice
A man of multiple talents—actor, director, comedian, and screenwriter—Goldthwait became a recognizable stand-up performer in the 1980s (Thanks to his distinct voice, political satires, and black comedy style.) But now, the comedian has put his old style behind him - and progressed as an artist.
Goldthwait continues to appear on stage, but he now uses his real voice to make the audience laugh. In a series of YouTube videos posted by Laugh Out Loud Flix in March 2020, he used his genetically blessed voice to perform for the enormous crowd. He did an hour-long act for the audience - who loved his performance and applauded him with loud cheers, claps, and laughter.
However, at points, he used his trademark screech that hits the ‘Old Bobcat’ performance.
During his performance, the stand-up admitted to having a special connection with the live audience. He then immediately added a punchline and said: “I ran out of money, ladies and gentlemen. I’m not going to lie.”
To which the crowd cracked up.
Amazed to see his different side, Goldthwait's fans filled up his YouTube comment section with positive responses. While one user wrote, "Damn, he's still got it, folks! Funnier than ever, actually!" Another fan commented, "Look he's actually funnier now than back in the days. Good stuff!"
Some people even recalled their nostalgic memories while watching the video. An individual commented, "He performed a live show at my college in Memphis back in 88. He was great then, he still has it." Another comment read, "This you made one of the most remarkable characters of the '80s. Legend."
Goldthwait Has Worked in Over 100 Movies
Starting his professional career (as young as fifteen) with his classmate Tom Kenny, the duo performed in a comedy project as ‘Bobcat and Tomcat.’ Later, Goldthwait became a well-known solo stand-up performer - and earned himself a music record: Meat Bob (1988) and two televised concert specials: An Evening with Bobcat Goldthwait: Share the Warmth (1987), Bob Goldthwait - Is He Like That All the Time? (1988).
According to IMDb, the 58-year-old actor has appeared in one hundred and seven movies, to be exact. His first breakthrough role was ‘Zed’ in Police Academy 2: Their First Assignment (1985). Goldthwait continued to reprise the role in the next two movie franchises.

The stand-up comedian featured in the 1991 comedy movie Shakes the Clown, which was also written and directed by him. Goldthwait also appeared as a ‘wild writer’ in Radioland Murders (1994).
