A lot’s been going on so let’s get right to it.
I continue to narrate the hit History Channel documentary series, Ancient Aliens and am proud to say we have completed our 13th season of production with over 145 episodes aired. I’m also thrilled to report that The Curse of Oak Island, which I also have the honor to narrate, is the highest rated show on The History Channel checking in as the #1 Original Program on Cable Tuesday nights with nearly 4 million viewers tuning in each week! We’ve aired close to 80 shows and are now into our 6th season. I also narrate The Curse of Civil War Gold now in its 2nd season.
Speaking of Ancient Aliens, Alien Con the convention dedicated to the History Channel show, has been incredibly successful. The Pasadena convention in June was completely sold out with over 30,000 Ancient Aliens fans from across the galaxy in attendance. We then took the show on the road to Baltimore in November where again over 25,000 fans braved the November cold to see the stars of the show. We come back home to Los Angeles Jun 21-23 where we invade the Los Angeles Convention Center for 3 days of everything Alien. I look forward to seeing you there and whispering Ancient Astronaut Theorists say… yes! into as many ears as possible.
For the gamers out there be sure to get your Play Stations ready for the highly anticipated The Last of Us: Part 2. I had the thrill of doing Motion Capture with Troy Baker and Ashley Johnson. I am also pleased to be the voice of The Black Knight in Nintendo’s Fire Emblem Heroes and Super Smash Bros: Ultimate. You can also catch me in Lego: The Incredibles, Star Wars The Old Republic: Knights of the Eternal Flame, Batman: The Telltale Games Series, Mafia III, Final fantasy XV and a few others that those nasty NDA’s prevent me from naming.
On the advertising side I can be heard on TV or Radio spots for Oracle, DirecTv, IXIA, Shell Oil and seen in a national spot for United Healthcare.
I’ve also been busy working in Animation. Thank you Brad Bird and Terry Douglas for casting me in Pixar’s Incredibles 2. You can catch me as Captain George Stacy, the father of Spider-Gwen in Disney XD’s Ultimate Spiderman, Cartoon Network’s We Bare Bear and Higgabottom the Owl in The New Adventures of Max from Bento Box.
For those interested in what I look like, in 2018 PixL Entertainment aired the Television Film, Groomzilla where I had a starring role as the Father of the Bride.
I also had the honor of being a guest speaker at Yale University in New Haven Connecticut, where I discussed my career as a working actor in Hollywood with a group of graduate students. Go bulldogs!

Be on time, be prepared and don’t take yourself too seriously… Picasso once said it took him 4 years to learn to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child. From booking his first on camera job in 1971 (Gaines Burgers with Cheese) to his current ongoing gigs as the narrator of The History Channel’s hit series Ancient Aliens and The Curse of Oak Island, these are the qualities that Robert Clotworthy brings to his 45 years of a sustained acting career.
