I am a terrible impressionist. I can only do impressions of other people doing impressions… like your standard Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sean Connery, etc. They aren’t very good. However I have found that many caricaturists are actually pretty good mimics. It might have to do with some kind of empathy with their subjects. ..who knows?
One such caricaturist is a young man from Hawaii who occasionally comments on this blog, Piotr Walczuk. He’s a fellow member of the National Caricaturists Network, and his talent for voices is amazing. I’ve been meaning to posts some links to his website for a while now, and now he’s got a series of videos on Youtube showcasing both his vocal talents and his comedy writing. Check these out, and then visit his Youtube site and see some of his other amazing videos. Great stuff.
I love the Patrick Warburton impression. My brother-in-law is married to Patrick’s sister, and I’ve met him several times. Dead on impression.
