Wednesday Wonder: Meskimen on Shakespeare

Jim Meskimen is an actor (Frost/Nixon) who also happens to be brilliant at impressions. In this video, Meskimen does Shakespeare — Clarence's speech from Richard III — in 25 celebrity voices, including those of Jimmy Stewart, Garrison Keillor, Robert DeNiro, George W. Bush, Johnny Carson, President Obama, George Clooney, Droopy Dog, Ron Howard, and Richard Burton. His in-a-flash transitions are truly a wonder.

Wow -- he's brilliant. You don't even need the names on the video to know who he is imitating!


(and Droopy Dog has to be my favourite -- but, they all are!)
