Steve Whitmire has performed Rizzo the most times to this date, and it shows. Steve's had decades to perfect his Rizzo voice and accent. 

Dave Goelz filled in for Steve, and despite Dave's great range and talent, all I hear is his Gonzo voice (at least in the first part of the clip).  

Unfortunately, Tyler Bunch doesn't leave much of an impression on me due to the limited material. The voice just doesn't have that Rizzo-ness to it.

Ben Diskin portrays the young version of Rizzo in the 2018 Muppet Babies series. Not only is Ben's voice a perfect fit for Baby Rizzo, but it also would work very well for a grown-up Rizzo.
