Bruce Carey has always pushed the behavioral envelope. A performer from a very early age, he enjoyed doing impressions, dialects, writing and playing the class clown. At 13, Bruce traded in his oversized shoes for a leather jacket in the Central Ohio Children’s Television Workshop.
It was a recurring role on a syndicated show called “The Judge” produced by WBNS-TV, the local CBS affiliate, as a juvenile delinquent gang member. Finding acting a constructive creative outlet, he also performed in several children’s theater productions.
Later, an opportunity arose to join a local radio station. This began a radio career writing and performing characters, mostly on morning shows, for such illustrious and irreverent institutions as WLUP/Chicago, KCBQ/San Diego, KZEW/Dallas and five years with ABC Radio Networks.
Along the way were stints at several universities, including four years in the San Francisco Bay area earning an associate music degree. Playing small coffee houses and ushering at the S.F. War Memorial Opera House gave Bruce a chance to sing and wear a tuxedo – but not at the same time.
His career has included commercial and industrial voiceover for accounts like Wal-Mart, Pizza Hut, Miller Beer, Frito-Lay, U.S. Navy, McDonald’s, Greyhound, Haggar Slacks, Lincoln-Mercury, Pier One Imports, Universal Studios Florida, and as the male voice for America Online, network and cable.
Acting in industrial films and a couple of “B” science fiction movies, Bruce walked the thin line between fantasy and reality. All the while, writing and honing those characters which would one day get him noticed or put on stronger medication.
Through his company Voices Carey, Bruce now performs, produces and directs voice talent, and offers custom creative services and advertising concepts, specializing in a very “real person” conversational, contemporary approach.
Bruce Carey was featured in three episodes of Walker Texas Ranger starring Chuck Norris– Justice For All, Justice Delayed, Countdown. In the sci-fi horror movie Stealth Hunters he’s an investigative reporter assassinated for discovering a black ops arm of the government is creating a horde of zombie killers.
He has been the principal talent in TV promos like Paramount 21 Star Trek Next Generation Las Vegas promoting Star Trek, The Experience, a Sci-Fi Fantasy Action Adventure Drama in which you take on the role of William Shatner or Patrick Stewart on a simulated, USS Enterprise bridge in the Star Trek universe. In 2008 he was the principal on-camera spokesperson in six very high production value financial TV commercials and acted in several American Heart Association videos.
