Michael Winslow (born September 6, 1958) is an American actor, beatboxer and comedian billed as the "Man of 10,000 Sound Effects" for his ability to make realistic sounds using only his voice.
Winslow was born in Spokane, Washington, the son of Verdie and Robert Winslow. He attended the Lisa Maile School of Acting, Modeling and Imaging.
Winslow grew up at Fairchild Air Force Base where, according to his own account, he had few friends. In order to pass his time, he would imitate the sounds of engines, animals, anything that made noise. Following his high school and college periods, he performed in nightclubs and theaters, where his sound imitation skills won him positive appraisal and enough money to move to and perform his act in Hollywood.
