Yakety Yak® is a privately owned, ingeniously managed voiceover agency and for over 28 years we have been renowned for our innovative and exciting roster of voices, as well as for our fast, friendly and imaginative casting advice.
Voiceovers are all we do because that's what we're the best at. We are not owned or dictated to by any production company/theatrical agency/recording studio. Our user-friendly website features style specific clips in their chosen categories, which makes searching for that perfect voice an easy and thoroughly enjoyable experience.
We represent a wide range of respected and successful talent from around the world and we are also keen nurturers of emerging artists. The voices we represent can bring the most mundane script to life and make your best script an award-winner. We pride ourselves on our ear for fresh, original - and sometimes unusual – voices and our industry knowledge is second to none. We are always happy to offer free specialist casting advice, however big or small your production.
We supply voices for just about everything including TV and radio commercials, animation, video games, documentaries, audiobooks, corporate programmes, podcasts, exhibition/museum tours, ADR - basically anything with a voice on. We can supply artists for a one-off job or long-term regular bookings and our rates are extremely competitive. We generally don’t do free tests, as we don’t feel it is necessary with the variety of clips on our website, but get in touch if a test is vital and we’re happy to discuss rates. The majority of our artists now have home studios independently approved by external sound engineers - so we can turn around recordings at broadcast quality quicker than ever before.
If you need any sort of casting advice or have a particularly challenging brief and need a strategic helping hand – don’t hesitate to get in touch! The best way to discuss your project is by dropping us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or giving us a call on 020 7430 2600 (we love a chat) and our casting guru will create a bespoke casting list for you.
