Impersonations are hard. We’ve tried our hand at it and have been called a “garbage fire” at worst, and “not good” at best. Hopefully we can pick up some pointers when master impressionist Rich Little hits the Vegas stage.
Calling Little a “master impressionist,” is a bit of an understatement. The dude is a comedy icon. During the ‘70s he was a regular on “Hollywood Squares,” “The Judy Garland Show,” and even was a guest host on “The Tonight Show” 12 times. Name a person or celebrity and Little can drop a spot-on impersonation. His Ronald Reagan, Frank Sinatra and Kermit the Frog bits are legendary. He’s so good, he’s been known to step in for stars who can’t do their own soundtrack dubbings.
Little is going to teach a master’s course on impersonations. Feel free to borrow our notes afterwards if you want.
