Hello, I’m Rich Keeble – a professional British voice over artist and actor. There’s actually a good chance you’ve heard my voice on TV, radio or online commercials, video games, corporate training films, animations or audiobooks. I was recently heard as the Radio DJ in the live Halloween special of Inside No.9 on BBC2 and as Frank Fairburne in the video game Strange Brigade. You may actually have even seen my face on TV (among other things, this advert has been on a lot), or possibly some of these TV shows, but more on that later…

I have a very rich, deep, yet versatile voice that, combined with my experience in screen acting and live comedy, allows me to deliver anything from straight, serious reads for commercials, documentaries or on-hold/IVR messaging, through to more extreme characters for animations, video games, audiobooks or even tech-heavy Edinburgh shows!

I’ve provided voiceovers for the BBC, ITV, Carphone Warehouse, House of Fraser, Property Partner, Eon, Gabelle, Pepe’s, have recorded audiobooks for Harper Collins, Hodder & Stoughton, and have worked with big video game developers such as Creative Assembly and Frontier and many more.

I started out in life as an acoustic consultant which means I know how to deal with a microphone. But also, that has meant having to speak the various technical language required with architects, contractors, and mechanical engineers, so combined with the fact I’m learning Polish, I can certainly get my mouth round a difficult word or two!

REELS

Please have a look or a listen to my reels: commercial, video games, animation etc. The video reel contains a few things I’ve voiced. For more examples of work please scroll down or look under “work” in the main menu, where I’ve tried to describe the individual clips by the type of voice used!


And if you’d like to hear my voice and see my face at the same time, here are my acting reels for TV and commercials:

TV & ONLINE COMMERCIALS

Here is a selection of some of these in different voice styles from straight read (Property Partner), to epic comedy (Love Island), deep “geezer” type voice (Carphone Warehouse), and more excited and over the top (Alzheimer’s).

VIDEO GAMES

Other than screen work my main passion is voice acting in video games. I’m terrible at playing them (I played my character at EGX and was dead within minutes) but I love being involved. Whereas on TV I generally play rather unlikable characters, in games I’m not restricted by how I look and therefore have a lot more flexibility. Having said that I’ve voiced a lot of nasty monsters, robots and other creatures (including Ungrol Stoneheart/Beastmen in Total War: Warhammer for Creative Assembly, and The Blightreaper in Vermintide 2 for Fat Shark) but also the hero Frank Fairburne in Strange Brigade for Rebellion (including motion capture), and US pilots, crew or general public in games like Eve: Valkyrie or Elite Dangerous: Horizons for Frontier.

Check out my interview showing behind the scenes on Strange Brigade in the video below right, with some screen grabs from it below left. Then below that is another gallery of characters I’ve voiced plus video game footage reel, audio reel and clips! (Credits available on IMDb)

EXPLAINERS

Most of these online or internal corporate narrative “explainer” videos are with a straight, natural read with a professional yet friendly style. Here’s some examples.

Online Explainer – NATURAL, FRIENDLY VOICE

Online Explainer – NATURAL, FRIENDLY VOICE

Online Explainer – AUTHORITATIVE, EPIC

COMEDY FILMS

Here’s some stuff that fall more into the “voice acting” category. I did a radio DJ on Inside No.9 on BBC2. Hunka Wunda was an online sketch series with some up and coming comedians for which I did a number of voices. This one is an almost “movie trailer” voice. The Recycle Week films involved me playing a detective on the phone in a naturalistic style (I also did the voiceover at the end).

TV (BBC2) – RADIO DJ, CHEESY

Online series – AMERICAN, MOVIE TRAILER, COMEDY  VOICE

Online Films – DEADPAN, NATURALISTIC ACTING VOICE

Commercial – COMEDY, CHARACTER VOICES

(Bit of a cheat cos I’m actually in it as well…)

ANIMATION

Below is the pilot of Drek Steele: Space Pirate!, for which I voiced the title character and the ship’s computer. Drek is a manic sort of “1950’s broadcaster” voice, whereas the ship’s computer is a slightly camp, trans atlantic… well, computer voice. There’s also an episode of 100mph Tales, directed by Tony Garth who not only worked on the original Dangermouse, but contacted me after seeing me on TV!

Animation – MANIC, CHARACTER VOICES

Animation – NATURAL, FRIENDLY VOICE

Animation – DEADPAN, FAST, COMEDY

AUDIOBOOKS

I’m a big fan of audiobooks in general and find them very rewarding. It’s great to bring a story to life with all the different characters, or just read a genuinely interesting non-fiction piece!

I perform at the acclaimed storytelling night Liars’ League when they ask me and I’m available, and they gave me the “Most Valued Player Acting Award” for 2018 which was lovely! (Receiving my prize with Katy Darby and Liam Hogan on the left there).

Below are some audiobooks I’ve recorded for Harper Collins and Hodder & Stoughton. A mix of the comic satire, autobiographical, thriller, surgical, sport and science fiction!

All available on Audible.

The never-before-told inside story of how the Premier League became the wildest, richest, most popular entertainment business on the planet. 

Out December 12th

The history of surgery in 28 famous operations – from Louis XIV to JFK, and from Einstein to Houdini.

There was once a fashionable theory that history was determined not by individuals but by economic and geopolitical forces. Recent years have proved that idea abundantly wrong.

Released 1st June 2017

Mesut Ozil is a midfield magician, casting an elegant spell over opponents and conjuring passes through gaps lesser mortals can’t even see. After an eventful sojourn among the Galacticos of Real Madrid, he has savoured silverware at Arsenal, while in 2014 he lifted the World Cup with Germany.

Released 20th April 2017

A tense, claustrophobic and gripping science fiction thriller from the author of The Testimony.

Released 9th February 2017

Performing comedy short story “Tiny Bald Patch” by Pascal O’Hara at Liars’ League

MOVIE TRAILER VOICE

I think I do a pretty good “movie trailer voice” so I thought it deserved its own section. Here’s a little reel I put together containing the relevant bits from a comedy trailer for a fictional film, and a Pepe’s TV advert (which is also available in the TV commercials section above)

SERVICES

I’m based in London and regularly record in some of the top studios (including Scramble Soho, as featured in Toast of London – “Yes I can hear you, Clem Fandango!”), and am happy to travel to a studio of your choice (I’m always very nice to the engineer). However, I also have my own fancy gear in my acoustically treated home studio – AKG214 microphone, Focusrite 2i4 interface, DT770Pro headphones… that kind of thing. I even know how to use it all.

I can quickly supply WAV, MP3 or whatever else you need via Wetransfer or Dropbox and am happy to be directed via Skype, ipDTL, the phone or by email. I always edit out/redo mistakes, debreath (where appropriate), do basic filter/EQ/normalising (unless you don’t want me to), and expect to do a couple of different variants. I’m also used to getting timings spot on for commercials and I can sync to a video if you have one.

I’m happy to get involved in any of the following:

  • TV, radio or online commercials
  • Narration or explainer videos
  • Animation or video games
  • Audiobooks
  • E-learning
  • On hold or IVR
  • Dubbing or ADR
  • Apps, podcasts, radio shows
  • Comedy theatre shows, art installations… you name it!

ACTING/PRESENTING

Apart from voiceovers I have extensive experience as an actor in TV & film. I mostly get recognised as the bloke on the hippo in the Topcashback adverts, but I’ve recently appeared with Simon Callow in The Rebel (Gold), with Paddy McGuiness in The Delivery Man (ITV), Alan Carr in a few of his TV specials (Channel 4), and I was even in Birds of a Feather when they brought it back. I’ve been in a couple of sketches on The Last Leg too, and did some hidden camera stuff on Dom Joly’s Fool Britannia (ITV).

More recently I was in a sketch with Sally Lindsay that was almost entirely cut from Saturday Night Takeaway, I was offered a part in Greg Davies’ Cuckoo, but was cut from the script redraft… but I got cast in Porters instead – that’ll be out on Dave in 2019! I also just worked on Martin Clunes’ new sitcom Warren which will be on BBC1 in 2019.

All this experience in front of the camera on high profile sets has definitely helped inform my voiceover work.

I’ve tried to keep this site voice specific, but you can find out all about my acting and comedy as well as my music with loads more videos at richkeeble.com.

Oh go on, here’s my current acting showreels again:
