Candi Milo is an actor, singer, and stand-up comic best known as a voice talent on the children's animated shows " Dexter's Laboratory" and " The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius." Milo, a trained vocalist, began her career as a singer at the Disneyland theme park. After stints in Los Angeles as a nightclub singer and stand-up comedienne, Milo starred alongside Jennifer Holiday as a featured performer in the original touring production of the musical "Dreamgirls." But it was her behind-the-scenes role feeding lines to actors on the Ralph Bakshi-directed live-action-animated feature "Cool World" that led to Milo's first jobs as a voice actor. Much in-demand for her ability to draft a unique voice for each character, Milo went on to create hundreds of voices for major animation studios such as Hanna Barbera and Warner Brothers, including, most notably, the voices of the injury-prone Big Man On Campus Nick Dean on the Nickelodeon series "The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius" and the pint-sized (and Russian-accented) scientific mastermind Dexter on the long-running Cartoon Network program "Dexter's Laboratory."
