Police Academy star Michael Winslow comes to Peterborough as part of UK tour
ONE of cornerstones of surreal comedy is touring the UK for the first time and comes to Peterborough next month.
Michael Winslow, the Man of 10,000 Voices, the bloke who made all the sound effects of Police Academy, yep, him.
After his sell-out show at the Edinburgh Fringe last year, Winslow is bringing his unqiue whirlwind of a show to Peterborough.
Famed for the his vocal dexterity, Winslow can imitate any sound audible to the human ear - from Jimi Hendrix’s guitar to the call of a mating swallow.
Born in 1958 on Fairchild Air Force Base, the Hollywood star would imitate the jet engine but soon found himself on stage at Tulagi’s, Colorado, where Jimi Hendrix and The Doors among others have performed.
