Action Figure Therapy features action figures talking (well, mostly ranting) to therapists about their problems at work and at home. The series is produced by Dan Bialek and is co-written and predominantly voiced by one of my fav rising star Atlanta comedians, Jarrod Harris. Jarrod let me ask him a few questions about this kick-ass series he is in and his life song.
Who are the characters you voice on Action Figure Therapy?
Jungle Recon (star of the series)
Jungles’ Grandpa (the old man)
Snow Patrol (black dude)
Nesbit Faulkner (weirdo)
Bomb Squad Betty (the woman)
Communications guy (Another weirdo)
I will be introducing some more later on too.
How does it feel to be on a top web video series, but continue to go completely unrecognized because it’s voice acting?
It’s good to be doing something that is growing and really can’t be stopped That is GREAT! It’s very frustrating when people love something you do but don’t really care that it’s you behind the thing they love so much. It’s like being jerked off on and when everyone’s done they just leave and don’t offer shit in return. What I’m saying is if you like AFT, COME TO MY DAMN SHOWS! Now there are a lot of people who care enough to click on the info below the videos, find me and actually like my fan page and come to shows, and those people are amazing. I really need people to know about what I am doing in order to keep doing comedy and not get a real job. Hopefully, these people will stop dumping their loads and take the time to find who they been spewing on, find my fan page and start coming to shows fuck nuts! I’m kidding but I’m kind of serious. If you’re not going to come to a show then at the very least, let me spew on something of yours.
Which AFT character are you most like?
None of them. They are just annoying people I’ve lived around my whole life. It’s easier to make fun of them than it is to punch them. You’ll go to jail for that. And even though I have a good KO average, I’m not exactly prison ready. I haven’t worked out since the 90′s and I don’t need prison rape to get in the way of my life goals.
You are in LA, then Atlanta, LA, Atlanta, LA, Atlanta…So are there two of you, LA Jarrod and Atlanta Jarrod? How do they differ?
I’m just me. I don’t understand the question. I don’t change anything about myself when I go to LA or when I am in any other part of the country. LA Jarrod doesn’t sweat as much.
Most people don’t know about your past profession. What was the hardest thing about being a Vietnamese Lounge Singer?
That would probably have to be the fact that I don’t even speaking Vietnamese.
