One Shakespeare monologue, 25 impressions

This, my friends, is good stuff, and many thanks to NY Mag’s Vulture blog for pointing me to it: Jim Meskimen, impressionist extraordinaire, recites a speech from “Richard III,” using 25 different celebrity voices. Note how, as Woody Allen, he’s got the hand gestures and head movements down perfectly. Also especially liked his George W. Bush, William Shatner, George Clooney, and the way his Garrison Keillor bursts so suddenly into Craig Ferguson, making me wish the real Keillor would do that sometime. Enjoy.
