Since 1989 when The Simpsons began Azaria has done the voices for most notably Moe Szyslak, Chief Wiggum, Comic Book Guy, Snake Jailbird, formerly Lou, Apu Nahasapeemapetilon, Carl Carlson, and Bumblebee Man, and many others.
In April of 2017 Azaria also starred in Brockmire a television comedy about a baseball play-by-play announcer, Jim Brockmire. Brockmire suffers an embarrassing and very public meltdown on the air after discovering his beloved wife’s serial infidelity. A decade later, he decides to reclaim his career and love life in a small town, calling minor league ball for the Morristown Frackers.
After four seasons on IFC “Brockmire” ended in May of 2020 and less than a year later Azaria is returning with “The Jim Brockmire Podcast.” The half-hour podcast will feature guests from sports and entertainment, including Joe Buck, Don Cheadle, Steve Cohen, Colin Cowherd, Rich Eisen, Jemele Hill, Dan Patrick, Ben Stiller and Joy Taylor.
Azaria talked about returning to the Brockmire character and what to expect with the podcast, saying… “This is sort of more returning to the frivolous, fun, silly version of the character that’s making fun of everybody and everything and himself. It’s definitely a comedy and it sort of works whether we have folks on who are kind of in on the joke and like to play along or who are just completely playing it straight — it works just as well.”
