"Sam Riegel's voice gives him super strength!"

Samuel Brent Oscar Riegel (born October 9, 1976 in Washington, DC), also known as Sam Regal, Jack Lingo, or to Spike Spencer, "The Gay Man with the Fan", is a voice actor, writer and director who has worked on both 4Kids Entertainment 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 Those Two Guys, but when he's not, he'll probably be a hammy antagonist.

He is one of the hosts of Geek Pad, part of the ComedyComedy channel on YouTube. He has been nominated for a 2009 Daytime Emmy for his writing on Imaginary Bitches, and then later won one in 2018 for his directing on Danger & Eggs. He also started a podcast, "All Work No Play", with fellow voice actor Liam O'Brien. He is one of the nerdy-ass voice actors starring weekly in the Dungeons & Dragons stream Critical Role.

Has a Twitter account.

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

He's the older brother of Eden Riegel; a live-action actress who in the recent years entered the voice acting business.

He's also a self-professed unrepentant corporate shill.

Video Example(s):


Something the So-And-So

Big time. One wonders why he even became a villain in the first place. When he seemingly gets ultimate power, he has no idea what to do with it and gives it up with no fight at all. Later Wander easily convinces him to give up the supervillain life.

How well does it match the trope?
