In the 1970s, Richter became famous in West-Germany as television presenter of Disco, a music show filmed before a young live audience in which he also performed in sketches. As an actor, he played several roles in films and in theatre. As a voice actor, his most prominent role was lending his colourful, peppy voice to Timon from The Lion King. He also provided the German voices of Mike Wazowski in Monsters, Inc. (due to Nathan Lane and Billy Crystal having similar-sounding voices) and Dave in The Penguins of Madagascar. Richter wrote several books. He lives in Berlin and has one child.
