Not really a fan just stating a fact. His actual speaking voice wasn't as grating. It was a stage persona he adapted. There are many comedians that do it. Bobcat Goldwaith is another annoying voice that actually speaks normal in actuality. Larry the Cable Guy is another comedian with a fake persona.I never heard his real voice. Real or fake, what I heard was like fingernails on a chalkboard to me.
If you were a big fan of his I’m sorry, but his act didn’t do anything for me.
