He Knows His Fat Jokes


With his portly frame, geeky glasses, and toothy grin, comedian Greg Morton looks like a cartoon. So it's fitting that he used to be an animator at Hanna-Barbera. "I wanted to be the cartoon, instead of drawing them," he says of his career switch. Morton's onstage voices include characters from Star Wars and The Lord of the Rings, and occasionally he'll tackle something topical: "The President says that we're addicted to oil. Actually, we're addicted to food. We just need the oil to put in our cars to drive our fat asses to the restaurant."
