Early lifeEdit

Wingert was born in Des Moines, Iowa, but soon moved to Sioux Falls, South Dakota. In the early 1980s, he appeared as disc jockey "Dennis Jimenez" (Dennis the Menace) on KELO AM1320 in Sioux Falls.

CareerEdit

He was the announcer for the second incarnation of The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (and the short-lived primetime spinoff The Jay Leno Show before it), and the current voice of Jon Arbuckle (due to Thom Huge's retirement that same year) in The Garfield Show. He is also known for his role as one of The Almighty Tallest in Invader Zim (along with 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.

MusicEdit

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 title character for that year's Batman film.

Personal lifeEdit

He currently works and lives in Los Angeles, California.
