Impressionist Mikey Bolts takes on the 1999 Blackalicious classic Alphabet Aerobics, matching each letter of the alphabet to a cartoon character, and raps each part in their voice. We swear, the more we look at Mikey, the more we think he’s actually Peter Brady.
Impressionist Jim Meskimen turns in a wonderful reading of Clement Clarke Moore’s Christmas classic in the voices of 27 different celebrities. The usuals, like Morgan Freeman and Ian McKellan are there, but it’s his Paul Giamatti that made us spit out our coffee.
On The Howard Stern Show, Dana Carvey did a bit from his new Netflix special, Straight White Male, 60, in which he envisions a conversation between Paul McCartney and John Lennon where Paul tries to explain Kanye West. His micro-impressions are amusing too.
During her appearance on The Tonight Show, Céline Dion and Jimmy Fallon challenged each other to sing a variety of unexpected songs in the style of various musicians. Céline’s Cher impression was spot on, but her Sia at the end made us spit out our coffee.
Actor Ricky Gervais thinks that the guys on YouTube who rattle off a bunch of impressions are just a bunch of showoffs, and he told Jimmy Fallon that he can do it better. Though Ricky has a much looser definition of what an impression is than real impressionists do.
The Walking Dead and The Impression Guys actor Ross Marquand showed off his specialty on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, impersonating different celebrities accepting an Oscar. It’s not as good as his prepared ones, but for an on the spot performance he did a great job.
Most recently, we’ve been watching Ross Marquand kill it as Aaron on The Walking Dead. But you might not realize that he’s also an impressionist. In this clip for Vanity Fair, Ross performs a variety of improvised impressions of celebs thrown into random situations.
