Michael O’Karma

Michael O’Karma, born September 10, 1977 and died September 13, 2019 from a long battle with brain cancer, was an American actor who was best known for his comedy series ‘Dead Fred’ which he created, wrote and starred in. Michael appeared in a number of feature and short films in supporting and lead roles as well as in numerous stage plays. Aside from being a brilliant performer and gifted writer, perhaps his greatest talent was creating a diverse range of people’s voices that crossed all ages and demographics. This got him cast as a voice-over artist in a plethora of commercials and films. A formally trained actor in stage and film, Michael earned his BFA from the Hartt School Professional Actor Training Program, University of Hartford Connecticut/United Kingdom. He received wide critical acclaim for his one-man show ‘Flavio, Medium of the Dead’ which he toured across Los Angeles and London, with the Los Angeles Weekly saying “O’Karma’s delineations among his characters are clear, and his dialects are meticulous”, Time-Out London “particularly recommending” the show, and the Royal Vauxhall London saying “The show was funny and moving.”
