Bizarro cartoonist Dan Piraro has announced that he’s been cast as the host of a FOX network reality TV show, Utopia. From his blog:
Think about it. I?m at home in my sweatpants working on my cartoon career like I?ve been doing for the past 30 years, a friend asks me if I?d like to do some voiceover work for a TV show and I?m thinking, ?Sure. If I can make a few extra bucks talking into a microphone for a few hours a week, I?m game.? A few weeks later I?m on national TV, posing for publicity shots, and going on press junkets. I didn?t even have an agent or a headshot when this started. People who?ve been working for this kind of break in showbiz for years must hate me, and I can?t blame them. To them, I can only say I?m sorry.
Here’s a teaser with Dan’s voice.
