About Rich Little

Richard Caruthers 'Rich' Little (born November 26, 1938) is a Canadian-American impressionist and voice actor. He has been known nicknamed 'The Man of a Thousand Voices' (a title also bestowed upon voice actor Mel Blanc). Little was born in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, the middle of three sons of Elizabeth Maud (nee Wilson) and Lawrence Peniston Little, a doctor. In his early teens, he formed a partnership with Geoff Scott, another budding impressionist, concentrating on reproducing the voices of Canadian politicians such as then-Prime Minister John Diefenbaker and Ottawa mayor Charlotte Whitton (Geoff went on to become a politician). They were performing professionally in night clubs by age 17.
