Carlos Alazraqui

Carlos Alazraqui has worked hard to establish himself as one of the funniest men on television today. He is a voice we hear almost on a daily basis; we just don't know it. And now, we get to meet the man behind the voice.

Currently, Carlos can be seen playing Officer James Garcia, a cop who takes his job a bit too seriously on the Comedy Central series Reno 911!, soon to begin production on its fifth season.

Carlos is probably best known as the voice of a very famous Chihuahua, popularizing the slogan Yo quiero Taco Bell. In addition, he can be heard as Monroe in The Life & Times of Juniper Lee and Laszlo and on Camp Laszlo, both airing on the Cartoon Network.

Carlos can also be heard as Mr. Crocker, the schoolteacher on the Nickelodeon hit series Fairly Odd Parents, Rocko on Rocko's Modern Life, as Rikochet on Mucha Lucha, and in the PBS series Handy Mandy, Maya, and Miguel. Carlos has made guest appearances on Even Stevens, Lizzie McGuire, The Brothers Garcia, Men Behaving Badly, and That 70s Show. He also starred in his own half-hour comedy special for Comedy Central.

Carlos played one of the wacky penguins alongside Robin Williams in George Miller's animated hit film Happy Feet (Warner Bros.). Carlos's past film credits include Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius, Osmosis Jones and A Bug's Life.

Carlos performs his stand-up comedy routine on a regular basis. He also is in development on several of his own series. His one-man show, I Want to be Liked and Make Money, prompted Paula Warfield from Backstage West-Drama-log to write, "Carlos is anyone or anything he wants to be. He belongs to that rare category of chameleon-esque actors -- an extraordinary talent."

In his free time, Carlos is an avid tennis player and skydiver -- he has participated in over 525 jumps.
