Life and career
Insana was born in Chicago, Illinois on February 15, 1948, the son of Silvio A. Insana, a musician, and Hiloray (Swanson). In 1971, Insana co-founded a local comedy troupe known as the West Compass Trio, along with Steve Beshekas and John Belushi. Insana's highly-distinguishable voice has been featured in many animated television series, most notably Disney's Darkwing Duck as Dr. Reginald Bushroot and Bobby's World as Bobby's Uncle Ted. More recently, he has voiced Pig in Nickelodeon's animated film Barnyard and its subsequent spin-off TV series.
In the 1980s, Insana wrote two episodes for Police Squad! and an episode of Sledge Hammer!; he also served as story editor on both series. Insana then wrote, produced, and acted in Wedding Band and Masters of Menace.
Insana has also made brief acting appearances in such films as Neighbors, ¡Three Amigos!, Who's Harry Crumb?, The Couch Trip, Oscar, and Beverly Hills Cop III. He has also made guest appearances on situation comedy series such as Night Court and Mad About You.
In 2008, Insana voiced the role of Barf on Spaceballs: The Animated Series (possibly due to Insana's voice being similar to John Candy). He has also done voice work in Goof Troop, Camp Candy, The Little Mermaid, Pepper Ann (as Pepper Ann's police officer uncle Jojo), House of Mouse, What-a-Mess, Bonkers, Aladdin, Jungle Cubs, Problem Child, Buzz Lightyear of Star Command, Teacher's Pet, and Tom and Jerry: The Movie.
He was the speaking voice of Mr. Grouper in Bubble Guppies.
On May 31, 2017, Insana died in his home in Los Angeles, California of cancer at the age of 69.
