''[[WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries "Sam Riegel's voice gives him super strength!"]]''

Sam Riegel (also known as Sam Regal, or to SpikeSpencer, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aDIjySyEfy4 "The Gay Man with the Fan"]]) is a voice actor, writer and director who has worked on both [[Creator/FourKidsEntertainment 4Kids]] dubs and too many California dubs to list, as well as video games, original animation series and on-camera roles. He is often typecast as a {{Muggle}} or one of ThoseTwoGuys, but when he's not, he'll probably be a [[LargeHam hammy]] antagonist.

He is one of the hosts of Geek Pad, part of the [[http://www.youtube.com/user/comedycomedy ComedyComedy channel]] on Website/YouTube. He has been nominated for a 2009 Daytime Emmy for his writing on Imaginary Bitches. He's recently started a podcast, "[[http://allworknoplay.podbean.com/ Allworknoplay]]", with fellow voice actor LiamOBrien.

Has a Website/{{Twitter}} [[http://twitter.com/#!/samriegel account.]]

You are not going to spell his name right on the first try.

Oh yeah, he's the older brother of Creator/EdenRiegel; a live-action actress who in the recent years entered the voice acting business.
