Peter Kelamis is an Australian–born Canadian actor, stand-up comedian and impressionist. He is arguably best known for playing Tail Terrier in Krypto the Superdog, Dr. Adam Brody in Stargate Universe, Goku in Ocean’s English dubs of the animated series Dragon Ball Z, and Rolf from Ed, Edd n Eddy.
Some of his appearances on television were in Eureka, The Outer Limits, Corner Gas, Sliders, Stargate SG-1, Stargate Universe, The Sentinel, NCIS and The X-Files. Film appearances include; Happy Gilmore, Fear of Flying, I’ll Be Home for Christmas, Best in Show, The Sport Pages: The Heidi Bowl, and Everything’s Gone Green. He also had a recurring role in Beggars and Choosers.
As a voice actor, he replaced Ian James Corlett as the voice of Goku during 1997 in FUNimation/Saban’s short-lived original dub of Dragon Ball Z, and also voiced Goku in FUNimation and Pioneer’s 1997-1998 dub of the Dragon Ball Z movies Dead Zone, The World’s Strongest, and The Tree of Might. During 2000, he reprised the role in an unrelated dub produced by Westwood Media and AB Groupe for the UK (and later Canada). He left in the middle of the Cell arc, with Kirby Morrow voicing Goku for the remainder of the production. Kelamis has since stated he would have continued voicing Goku for the rest of the series, but that he was under the impression that the dub was ending, when it was in fact merely on a temporary recording hiatus. He has also famously voiced Rolf in Ed, Edd n Eddy as well as Whiplash in Iron Man: Armored Adventures. Kelamis originally auditioned to play the Eds, as well as the other male characters in Ed, Edd n Eddy but did not land either role; instead, he was encouraged by voice director Terry Klassen to play the character of Rolf. He also voiced Reaper in the video game Devil Kings as well as provided the voice of Byrne in the CGI animation, Dreamkix.
Outside of acting, Kelamis also worked as a stand-up comedian, he performed his very first stand-up comedy act in the fourth grade. Kelamis made his first stand-up comedy appearance at the Punchlines Comedy Club in Gastown.
