Warming Glow’s Guide to Celebrity Impersonators You Can Hire on the Internet

By: 11.16.11  •  23 Comments

That jovial, rednecked fellow you see above is not Larry the Cable Guy; it’s an impersonator who “not only looks like Larry the Cable Guy, he has captured the entertainer’s voice and mannerisms, as well.” Any well-known celebrity from Roseanne to Larry David can be impersonated by dozens of actors and actresses online, and then hired by you, for only hundreds of dollars! Win-win. So, the next time you need someone to entertain your corporate event or gathering, why not give Fake Alan Alda or Terrifying Sarah Jessica Parker a shot?

Here are some of my favorite TV impersonators. And if you decide to hire Black-and-White Tim Allen, tell ’em Warming Glow sent you and they’ll throw in a Wilson for free!

Celebrity Impersonators

On Celebrity Impersonators’ photo page, where you can see what the impressionists look like, there’s a description of what the actors can do, and Shania Twain’s name is mentioned in literally every sentence:

“Entertain with celebrity impersonator Jennifer Lopez, Shania Twain, Ricky Martin and Backstreet Boys live! The uncanny appearances of our celebrity impersonators and celebrity look-a-likes will make you the “Entertainer of the Year” like Shania Twain. Reserve celebrity impersonators like the sexy Jennifer Lopez or Shania Twain for your surprise birthday parties, catered events, conventions and live music entertainment. For professional celebrity impersonators like Shania Twain, Ricky Martin and Backstreet Boys, book celebrity impersonators before tickets sell out. We provide grammy-winning Shania Twain shows with celebrity look-a-likes and celebrity sound-a-likes for: corporate events, location entertainment, special events, and occasions like weddings, grand openings, holidays, anniversaries, birthdays, Shania Twain theme shows casinos and fairs. Our Shania Twain, Jennifer Lopez, Ricky Martin are a hit at celebrity impersonators performances at resorts, cruises and advertising campaigns.”

Sadly, Shania Twain isn’t much of a TV personality, so my “Shania Twain theme show” idea will have to wait for another post, and I’ll have to settle for the following:

He looks like an extra from a film “Mystery Science Theater 3000” would spoof.

For a KILLER party. When you want to MURDER your guests with fun. Etc.

What would an O.J. Simpson impressionist actually do? Would he be NFL running back O.J.? Would he be Naked Gun O.J. and recite the entire boxing scene from the second film (“I saw Kid Minneapolis fight once. In Cincinnati”)? Or would he be “Trial of the Century” O.J. and leave leather gloves everywhere?

It’s nice to know that guy from Borat has a second career impersonating Danny DeVito.

I’m seeing double: FOUR Roseannes!
