What Clients Say About Pat Duke 
Brian Catalina
Original Media
Executive Producer of History Channel's 'SWAMP PEOPLE'

, “Casting the voice-over artist for Swamp People was challenging. We listened to hundreds of reads and then discovered Pat Duke. Pat's reads are so powerful and spot-on, he has become a key "character" in our series and an important reason why Swamp People has become a break-out hit for History Channel. Pat's skills extend beyond the command of his remarkable voice— he is a consummate professional who is easy to work with, breathes life into our words, and makes every session fun. I'm his biggest fan!” Ivo Knezevic
VP/Executive Producer
DraftFCB, Chicago

, “Pat Duke was the voice of KFC for 5 years. We’d listened to hundreds of voices, but still hadn’t found the perfect fit. Then, we heard Pat. Those great pipes with just a hint of southern cut right through. Combine that will with the ability to massage copy (even when it's moving fast) and the talent to subtly make every word 'taste' good, and you’ve got Pat Duke.”

Those great pipes with just a hint of southern cut right through. Combine that will the ability to massage copy even when it's moving fast and the talent to subtly make every word 'taste' good and you’ve got Pat Duke. Great voice, great attitude, fun to work with and a total pro. I recommend finding out for yourself.
