A multi-talented entertainer, Joey Fatone (born Joseph Anthony Fatone Jr. in New York City) is a well-known American actor, singer, dancer, and game show presenter. Brooklyn, New York, USA is the place where he was born on January 28, 1977. In addition to being a member of the ‘N Sync boy band, Joey is also a well-known actor.
The Singing Bee and its spin-off, The Singing Office, were both NBC talent competition shows he hosted in 2003 (against Fame star and producer Debbie Allen). He was a contestant on Nick Arcade before this. Dancing with the Stars was also a part of his career. Until Rubin Ervin took his place in 2015, he was the announcer for Steve Harvey’s Family Feud.
Joey Fatone’s Career
Chris Kirkpatrick and Fatone became friends in the summer of 1995. They were both stage actors at Universal Studios Hollywood. After being rejected by the Backstreet Boys, Kirkpatrick met with Lou Pearlman to discuss the possibility of forming his own band. In agreement, Pearlman agreed, and they went out to locate other members of the organization.
Kirkpatrick, Justin Timberlake, and JC Chasez formed NSYNC with Fatone’s help. After Jason Galasso, the group’s original bass singer, left, Lance Bass was brought in to fill the void. For their first record, the band went to Sweden to collaborate with BMG Ariola Munich. On November 18, 1996, their first single, “I Want You Back,” was released in Germany.

When it sold 2.42 million copies in a single week, this record stood for over fifteen years.

In fact, “It’s Gonna Be Me” topped the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States. There has been no new material published since their highly successful 2002 Celebrity Tour, which brought in about $30 million.
Despite several additional public appearances, the group has gone on indefinite hiatus with no new content. NSYNC received eight Grammy nominations in all. Also, they cooperated with prominent artists like Elton John and Michael Jackson and played at significant events including the World Series, the Super Bowl, and the Olympic Games, and collaborated with artists like Elton John, Michael Jackson, and Stevie Wonder, and Britney Spears, among others.
Game Show Announcer Leigh Dickey’s Family Feud Demo
Hello, there, and thank you for stopping by! What’s going on? I hope everything is going great for you all! Today, I’m going to give you all a gift! “Family Feud” is one of the most popular game shows around the globe, and a few years back I decided to record an announcing sample of my own. I grew up watching reruns of the Richard Dawson and Ray Combs versions of the show and have always been a fan.
There were many memorable moments from that syndicated run when Louie Anderson hosted and Burton Richardson was the announcer, including when the show returned in 1999. When it comes to Burton, I’ve always been a big fan of his announcement technique. He’s a lot of fun to be around, and I think that enthusiasm was reflected in both the studio audience and the viewers at home.
This sample was recorded during Steve Harvey’s fourth season as host of the show and Joey Fatone’s fourth season as an announcer, respectively. I’ve always wanted to be an announcer on a game show, so I figured recording would be a nice way to get closer to that goal. In my opinion, I did an excellent job with this demo.
In order to draw emphasis on my announcing and voiceover skills, as well as to stretch the announcer’s introduction as much as possible, I felt that Fatone’s intro was too brief and spliced into the beginning of each episode, so I decided to do something about it. For the demo, I improvised everything and then wrote it down for future recordings.
Please enjoy this demo tape, this little surprise. I hope you enjoy what you see and hear, and if you do, please consider subscribing to my YouTube channel so that I may continue to provide you with quality content like these and more! We’d want to express our gratitude to each and everyone I’ll talk to each of you soon.
