An amazing mimic, Steve Bridges, website is at http://www.stevebridges.com/.
I got the link from one of those e-mails that floats around the internet. He does impersonations of presidents and one governor. I watched his impersonation of President Barack Obama & also his impersonation of President George W. Bush (he has multiple President Bush videos, the one I watched was done at the White House Correspondents Association annual dinner), and laughed my ass off at both videos. Both videos are available at Bridges’ website, although for some reason the page with Bush impersonations took a very long time to load earlier today.
Bridges’ ability to impersonate people is astounding. He gets the posture, hand gestures, typical facial expressions, voice intonations, and even accents down pat. And also the phrases, analogies & themes each president likes to use in speeches. It’s a pleasure to watch him for his ability as well as for how darn funny he is.
If you’re looking for a good laugh, please do go check out some of his videos.
(On a side note, I’ve seen rumors around the internet that our current President, President Obama, is not particularly pleased with Mr. Bridges impersonation. A quick web search was unable to find any mention of this other than unsubstantiated rumors passing from blog to blog, so I’m going to assume it’s a false rumor. President Bush did not appear to have any problems with Mr. Bridges impersonation with him, the video from the WHCA dinner is Mr. Bridges doing his President Bush impersonation right beside the real President Bush, and at the end of the video the real President Bush said he was the one who invited Mr. Bridges to the dinner. )
