UCLA’s Disney Club hosts voice of Goofy in Moore Hall

Disney’s iconic Goofy giggle has resonated throughout the world since its creation in 1932 and will soon resonate through the hills of the UCLA campus when Bill Farmer, the official voice of Goofy, makes his appearance.

The Disney Club of UCLA is presenting “An Evening with Bill Farmer” at 7 p.m. Tuesday in Moore Hall. This is the first Disney Club event to showcase a comedic member of The Walt Disney Company, as well as one who is still active in the industry.

The event will begin with trivia questions for the audience and a chance to win prizes that include autographed head shots of Farmer. Then, Farmer will present a video and discuss his experience as a comedian and voice actor, closing with a Q&A; segment from the Disney Club and the audience.
