Comedian Dana Snyder's ability to pull off a seemingly countless number of foreign accents and bizarre voices has made him one of the leading lights in the recording booth at Cartoon Network's companion network, Adult Swim. The former burlesque-act comedian fell into the fold when he was invited to join the cast of "Aqua Teen Hunger Force" as the obnoxious Master Shake after being suggested to its creator, animator Dave Willis, by a mutual friend. His many appearances on Adult Swim include stints as The Alchemist on the superhero spoof "Venture Brothers" and as an eight-tentacled, redneck grandmother on "Squidbillies." "Songs for Helping," a Web series in which two crudely drawn angels offer misguided answers to their viewers' most-pressing questions, showcased Snyder's skills as a singer and ukulele player. His collaborations with 16-bit animation aficionado Adam de la Pena have led him to play Todd on G4's office-based comedy "Code Monkeys" and Hork, a pant-less nomad, in MSN's "Your Dungeon, My Dragon." The latter, a spoof of role-playing games, premiered via Xbox Live in November 2011. One of his major influences is irrepressible Hollywood black-list survivor Zero Mostel. Snyder has landed roles originated by Mostel in regional theater productions of the Broadway farce "The Producers" and Steven Sondheim's ancient Roman comedy "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum."
