Carla Delaney's name may not be recognizable but her voices are. A Groundlings alum, Delaney is a voice-over artist whose celebrity impersonations have appeared on Family Guy, The Cleveland Show, Conan, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Dana Carvey's First Impressions and a Snickers commercial. In her one-woman show, Voices, which debuted last year at the Hollywood Fringe Festival and won two awards, the actress imitates the voices of Judy Garland, Liza Minnelli, Dolly Parton, Betty White, Drew Barrymore, Sofia Vergara and characters from The Simpsons. But beyond sounding like famous people, Delaney delves into her personal life, tracing the roots of her talent for mimicry and how the other voices in her head function. Directed by Jessica Lynn Johnson, Delaney inhabits more than 30 characters, from family members to inanimate objects, including her brain, heart, respiratory system and even a French horn. She also opens up about having Hashimoto's disease and how the thyroid condition affects her career.
