Early lifeEdit

Wingert was born in Des Moines, Iowa on May 6, 1961,[3][1] but soon moved to Sioux Falls, South Dakota.[3]

CareerEdit

He began his career in radio as a disc jockey in 1977, at the age of 16 years old.[3] He eventually moved to Los Angeles, California in 1987, continuing his radio career.[3]

In 1989, Wingert parodied the Escape Club song "Wild, Wild West" on the Dr. Demento radio show as "Adam West", in response to the casting of Michael Keaton as the titular character for Batman.[3] He continued to work with the radio business with Westwood One, but later left the station and would take a full-time position as an air personality with KTWV.[3] After five years, he eventually left the radio station and would purse a career in acting, singing and voice acting.[3]

Wingert was the announcer for the second incarnation of The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (and its spin-off The Jay Leno Show) as well as the voice of Jon Arbuckle from The Garfield Show. He is also known for his roles as Almighty Tallest Red from Invader Zim (opposite Kevin McDonald), Ant-Man / Giant-Man from The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, the Riddler from the Batman: Arkham series, Renji Abarai from Bleach and Kotetsu T. Kaburagi / Wild Tiger from Tiger & Bunny.

He narrated Impact: Stories of Survival on the Discovery Health Channel, How to Build Everything on the Science Channel, Amazing Medical Stories and That's Gotta Hurt on TLC, some episodes of E! True Hollywood Story on E! and Outdoor Outtakes on the Outdoor Life Network.
