Brad Grusnick stole the lead in his first grade play because he was “the loud kid” and has been acting ever since. Due to the odd structure of the Northwestern University School of Speech, he earned a Bachelor of Science in Theatre in 2001. Though he tells people he is a Theatre Scientist, they can still sniff out the B.S. After college he went through The Second City Conservatory and Second City Writing Programs in Chicago, where he met some very silly people who liked to do Improv. In addition to doing several shows at The Second City Training Center, he was in “The Fling,” a member team at The Playground Improv Theater. As a member of The Fling he helped co-create the stage show and podcast Mohansen High School.
Love of doing silly voices has benefited him greatly, doing voiceover commercials for Hyundai, Nintendo, Target, Taco Bell, Subway, Honda, Chevron, Sears, Hallmark, McDonald’s and many others. He has voiced characters for several video games, including Back4Blood, Elder Scrolls Online, Days Gone, Paragon, Tales from Borderlands, The Devil's Third, Bioshock Infinite, God of War: Ascension, Guardians of Middle Earth, Elder Scrolls:V Skyrim, Resistance: Burning Skies, Crysis, Crackdown 2, and Asura’s Wrath. He was "Mayor Moose" and "Lou Behr" in the Amazon Animated Pilot, Bear in Underwear, "Mumkey" and "Spiderlamb" in WB Animation's Bunnicula, and has a recurring role as "Magnus Finke" and "Gill" in Dragons: Rescue Riders from Dreamworks Animation on Netflix and Peacock.
I would say Brad Grusnick was inclusive and had a relaxed demeanor which helped all of us settle in and bring our A game to classes. He encouraged everyone and gave each person constructive feedback that improved our reads. (Beginning Voiceover: Online)

Brad Grusnick's Beginning Voiceover Combo was my first class. My children have also taken a few classes and we have all enjoyed them. I love that they are taught by working professionals so we can get insight into the industry.

Lots of mic time, great direction from a working professional (Brad Grusnick, Instructor) in both animation and gaming voice acting. You’ll not only learn a lot from your time in the booth, but you’ll learn by hearing the feedback from Brad to other students as well. Highly recommend!!!

This workshop (Brad Grusnick, Instructor - Gaming & Animation) was everything I wanted. There was plenty of material to prepare, cold reading practice was exciting, and the teacher (Brad) was incredibly accommodating. I received direction on creative choices and insight to what casting directors look for. Brad matched the groups excitement for getting into the booth and getting work done. I am looking forward to the email announcing a more in depth course.
