Who is Voltaire?

Voltaire, is a popular Cuban-American dark cabaret musician. His stage name is his given middle name, which he shares with the famous French Enlightenment writer François-Marie Arouet.

Recently, he has been using Aurelio Voltaire as his stage name, for, quote, "I got tired of there being other people releasing albums as Voltaire. There's an indie band in Germany and some American guy who makes instrumental hip hop. Like, do these people not do a ... google search before naming their bands? Anyway, it was just easier to distinguish myself from them by using my first name."

Voltaire is also an experienced animator and comic artist, and is a professor at the School of Visual Arts in New York.

Famous Quotes:

  • “God is a comedian playing to an audience too afraid to laugh”
  • "The progress of rivers to the ocean is not so rapid as that of man to error."
