Charles Fleischer

Charles Fleischer began his career in the Goodman Theater in Chicago. His unique vocal abilities and comedic talent in the role of Roger Rabbit in Robert Zemeckis' 1988 film Who Framed Roger Rabbit? brought him national awareness and led to an hilarious pairing with Robin Williams at the 1989 Academy Awards Show.

Fleisher's debut starring engagement in Las Vegas and his one-man show for HBO's One Night Stand have been critically acclaimed. His non-stop concert dates at major comedy venues across the nation attest to his emergence as a superstar on the American comedy scene. His wild flights of improvisational invention have kept audiences coming back for more, as no two performances are ever the same.

His recent television appearances include episodes of Drew Carrey and For the People. Among his film credits are Permanent Midnight, with Ben Stiller, Back to the Future, Nightshift, The Hand, Nightmare on Elm Street, Warren Beatty's Dick Tracy and Straight Talk with Dolly Parton.

Fleischer is also the author of The Moleeds, a book of his own mathematical theories which has received resounding praise from academicians. The complex theories are hilariously woven into many of his comedy performances. His love for and desire to teach science to children has brought him much recognition, in particular for an educational CD-ROM for 7th Grade called Virgil Reality, and as a host for The Fleischer Files on Discovery's Next Step. Fleischer blends his love of technology and comedy in his popular website, monkeydog.com, where users can view art, read about the Moleeds and use the insult engine to send personalized insults anonymously to anyone on the internet.
