Yes, humour can reside in the booth when recording long form narration!
Going into the Victoria Day weekend (Canada), and also APAC and the Audies, I thought it would be fun to share a laugh-out-loud funny video about audiobook narration I found on AudiobookCommunity.com.
With comedic timing and humour the likes of Steve Carell, musician, actor and narrator Kirby Heyborne does a great job of bringing the funny into audio recording.
When I asked some of you via Facebook what makes audiobook recording fun, I received the following answers:
"The first audiobook that I narrated was a self-help book. I had the privilege of working closely with the author who encouraged me to read honestly and intimately through each chapter. It was an amazing experience! When I listen to it now, I still hear the segments that touched me deeply during the recording sessions."
"I just enjoy telling a story. The more characters in the book, the better."
-- Brian Bascle
Looking forward to your thoughts! Comments regarding Kirby's video are also welcome :)
