Kinda fun. A few that were misses, but a few amusing hits. :)

I saw Rich Little live once. He was pretty awesome.

Another good one was a SNL episode where Kevin Spacey did a bunch of fake screen tests of famous actors trying out for Star Wars.

IMHO, Frank Caliendo is better than Rich Little. Caliendo is as good a technical impressionist as Little, but is more of a natural comedian.

Boy, I thought he was pretty good. It’s tough doing some of the lesser known guys...but on the whole it had me wondering if the guy was local...and that is the whole idea.

We're also going to try to replace some of our older servers and failing equipment this year so we're going to add a little extra to our FReepathon goals. John is estimating ten to fifteen thousand to do this and I'd like to get it all in place and working before the election cycle is fully heated up, so we'll try to bring in a little more now if we can and the rest next quarter.

I saw Rich Little in the late 90s and he was amazing. His impression of Paul Lynde nearly brought the roof down! After the show I got backstage and had a chance to talk with him for a few minutes. He mentioned how thankful he was to see us “younger” folks there (I was in my 30s). He said it was so hard to do the actors of today. I asked him what he meant and I’ll never forget what he said: “Think of a Tom Cruise movie. Now think of Tom Cruise’s voice.” He was right, most modern actors have pretty generic voices and mannerisms.

I thought Rich Little had passed away. But he’s still with us. He’s 73. Fred Travalina was good, but he passed away in 2003 I think it was.

My favorite was Rich Little doing Jack Nicholson as the President of the United States - "I've got one finger on the button, and one finger for Mr. Gorbachev..."

Of course I was a teen in the 80s when I saw it, must be why it stuck.
