West started his career in Boston in the 1980s as a comedian and radio DJ. Following a move to New York City, he joined the raucous staff of "The Howard Stern Show," where he provided many character voices, including those of Connie Chung and Rudy Giuliani. West has voiced over 120 different characters in commercials, TV, video games, and film -- including the animated sports movie "Space Jam" with Michael Jordan and Matt Groening's cult hit "Futurama," where West voices series lead Fry.
