The Impressive Piotr

June 14th, 2010 | Posted in General

A few years ago I linked to a number of videos by comedian, impressionist and caricature artist Piotr Walczuk. Piotr (pronouned “Pee-aht”). I thought it was about time to post one of his more recent ones. Piotr was given the rare opportunity to audition for Saturday Night Live last year… something almost any comedian is dying to get a chance at. His impressions are…well, IMPRESSIVE. It’s fascinating to watch his face and mannerisms take on the look of the people he is imitating. He’s a darn good caricaturist as well.

After hanging out with Piotr last year at the San Diego Comic Con, he was kind enough to record a voicemail message for my cell phone in the voice of Sir Ian McKellen… which is cool but know I get people who call me and when I answer tell me to hang up and not answer when they call back so they can hear my voicemail message. Then they don’t leave a message. Very annoying.

That reminds me, I owe Piotr a caricature.

Check out his web page for more impressive impressions.

  2. Love it!
    Piotr is easily one of the best impressionists around.

    One of the best Pacino’s I’ve ever heard.
