If you were wondering who's voice that is on Air America....
doing the voice overs "The radio Rush Limbaugh would listen to if he hadn't ruined his hearing doing drugs" and such it's:

Keith David





He also does the "What can Brown do for you" on UPS ads.

"Men at Work"
"There's Something about Mary"

I have no confirmation of this but I am RARELY wrong about voice overs. It's a "gift".

3. My colleague was right
First day we listened to AA, he said that the voice overs sounded like Rowdy Roddy's friend from They Live.

I think you are (both) right. It sure sounds like Keith David.

4. The very first time I heard the voice, I knew exactly who it was.
Thank you for telling me his name. That is the one thing I did not know.

9. "You stop spraying that s**t on your feet or I will kill you myself"
Tom Berringer to Keith David's character (name?) after he put bug spray on his feet to avoid patrol.
