James Urbaniak

James Urbaniak is the velvet voiced master of comedy who provides the silky smooth vocals for Dr. Venture on Adult Swim’s hit comedy The Venture Brothers. He has quite the impressive resume of acting credits listing all the way back to 1994, but if you like hilarity and adorable children, I cannot recommend “The Urbaniak Podcast” enough. You can find it on his Tumblr. You really should follow his Tumblr.
