In reality however Waldo is an anarchic animated character on a satirical late-night topical comedy show who, once he has lured someone into the studio unleashes a series of humorous innuendo, sarcasm and childish vitriol. Waldo is voiced by a failed comedian Jamie Salter who's public success is in dark contrast with his less than happy personal life which becomes more apparent when this blue bear stands a chance of winning the By-Election
