JIMPRESSIONS, a two-act homage to the art of vocal mimicry, is his ninety minute, two-act tour de force in which he relates his observations of and experiences with over 65 different celebrities, from George Clooney, to Kevin Spacey, from William Shatner to Morgan Freeman… and even Flipper.
He has performed the show in Hollywood, Tampa Bay, Toronto, Vancouver, Baltimore, London, Chicago and Sydney, Australia, where audiences embraced the JIMPRESSIONS show and demonstrated a strong appetite for a new, fresh look at the art of celebrity mimicry.
He was also chosen as a presenter at the prestigious E.G. 6 Conference in Monterey, CA, and also La Cuidad De Las Ideas (City of Ideas) in Mexico City in November 2012.
With â€śShakespeare in Celebrity Voicesâ€ť, which went viral on YouTube in July of 2011, followed by â€śCelebrity Alphabetâ€ť, the holiday themed, â€śTwas the Night Before Christmas in Celebrity Voicesâ€ť, and â€śShakespeare in Celebrity Voices Part Twoâ€ť, viewers worldwide began to â€śAccept Imitations.â€ť
Meskimen ups the ante in the live show, offering a live version of â€śShakespeare Impressionsâ€ť, with volunteers from the audience challenging him with random celebs to speak the Bardâ€™s verse.
â€ś…Expert celebrity impersonator Jim Meskimen gives the freshest, funniest take on Clarenceâ€™s death dream (from Richard III) weâ€™ve seenâ€¦ well, ever.â€ť said Entertainment Weekly.
â€¨The New York Times.com said, â€śMeskimen is a very talented impressionist, but whatâ€™s most impressive here is that he not only imitates obligatory celebrities like Arnold Schwarzenegger, George W. Bush, Jack Nicholson and Jimmy Stewart but also people like George Clooney, Paul Giamatti and Ricky Gervais, celebrities you wouldnâ€™t think were ripe for impressions until you hear his takes on them.â€ť
Now, Meskimen brings his full range of vocal talents directly to fans of spot-on celebrity impressions in his touring one-man show, JIMPRESSIONS, now available for corporate events and private parties.
