This is a video of actor, comedian, impressionist, Jim Meskimen, impersonating various celebrity voices while reciting Shakespeare. It’s very funny and already has over 600,000 views on Youtube.
“Jim is ‘Meskerising’ in his multiple-personality, one-man show deftly directed by Tait Ruppert. Famous stars past and present crowd the stage, magically conjured by the silly, singular Meskimen, a vocal magician who pulls characters out of his head — and even more amazing, like Penn & Teller, Jim shows us how he does it.
Is there no end to his wizardry? No! Act Two introduces his charming British “altered ego”, Professor Knestor Jackdaws, for a terrific and different topper of inspired artistic improvisation.
Go see Meskimen’s Show, and who knows? You may even see yourself…”
– Phil Proctor of the Firesign Theatre
