10 Incredibly Accurate Impersonations By People You Wouldn’t Recognize

Published by at 11:00 am under Lists,Television


I’m always up for a good impersonation.   In fact nothing pisses me off more than when someone does a bad impersonation.  Not only do you want to tell them to shut up, but the fact that they’re even attempting the impression usually means they think they’re good at it.  So that actually pisses me off even more.

However, when someone gets it right, you definitely have to give them credit.  And sometimes you’re even amazed at how accurate their representation of the imitated character is.

Here are 10 incredibly accurate impersonations by people you wouldn’t recognize.

Young guy doing Michael Caine


This is amazing.

Aries Spears Rap Medley


There’s no way you could tell these weren’t the real people if you didn’t see this guys face.

Stewie Griffin


How old is this kid?  His voice is awfully low.  Hell of a good job here though.

Reggie Reg does Denzel Washington



A Great Al Pacino Impression by Craig Gass


The “hoo hah” at the end sucked but other than that, damed good.

I Have No Clue what this is


But it HAS to be good.  The crowd was going ballistic

Christopher Walken


It’s only 15 seconds but it works

Nicholas Cage Impression


This is amazing.

Pablo Francisco does the Don LaFontaine


This guy could easily replace LaFontaine

Howard Stern


Dead on

    Holy Shit.

    Pacino I’ve seen, the Michael Caine was SPOT ON.

  2. kvfitzon 13 Nov 2008 at 4:27 am

    The Howard Stern is… seamless. He’s so spot on, it’s not even really satire.

  3. Lotus Eateron 13 Nov 2008 at 8:13 am

    LOVED Pablo’s Don LaFontaine… that is one hard voice to do! I’ve been working on it myself since he passed away (and can do a passable Ahhnold) but the way he seamlessly transitions between Don, Arnold and Keanu is priceless. Will have to check out more of his stuff. Also dug the Michael Caine and Howard Stearns guys…

    Damn, no Frank Caliendo?

  7. Benon 13 Nov 2008 at 10:40 am

    Youtube apparently is killing any website that digg posts a link too. This is very annoying, bad youtube, bad!

  8. your momon 13 Nov 2008 at 12:26 pm

    yeah, no frank caliendo??? the list is nowhere complete without him

  9. SyXXon 13 Nov 2008 at 1:24 pm

    DC Lugi does a way better Pacino.

  10. brendanon 13 Nov 2008 at 1:32 pm

    No Frank? That’s tirubble.

  13. NYCon 13 Nov 2008 at 2:10 pm

    That Stern impression is the best.

  14. ntopicson 13 Nov 2008 at 2:13 pm

    These are great impressions! I like the
    Nicholas Cage Impression best.

    thanks from tony

  15. Rahxyon 13 Nov 2008 at 4:49 pm

    Does it count if it’s a celebrity impersonating another celebrity?

    (PS: the Nicholas Cage one is my favorite.)

  16. LBon 15 Nov 2008 at 12:20 pm

    This list is great but its incomplete with Kevin Pollack’s Christopher Walken impression…it’s just too good!

  17. Nattybon 15 Nov 2008 at 12:28 pm

    People, it’s impersonations by people you DON’T recognize. Hello?

  18. GabrielBon 15 Nov 2008 at 7:13 pm

    I recognize Aries Spears.

    Anyway, you really should have included Max Koch and his amazing Tony Soprano:

    He does a good Christopher too. Actually, he does a bunch of voices, but his Tony is just eerie. Easily one of the best impressionists I’ve ever seen.

  19. Norma aka JAMon 17 Nov 2008 at 1:55 pm

    Not positive, but think the one you don’t know is Christine Aguilera and Andre Bocelli…for sure I think it’s Bocelli tho.

  20. tai mai shuon 18 Nov 2008 at 4:24 pm

    Q: what’s the opposite of Christopher Walken?
    A: Christopher Reeve!

  21. savidgeon 27 Nov 2008 at 3:55 am

    Christina Aguilera plays Samantha from Sex and the City…..toooooo funny……–the-citys-samantha-im-a-man-330745.php

  22. Jasonon 06 Dec 2008 at 12:29 am

    Yes that’s right, no Frank Caliendo. This blog has a strict “NO DIPSHITS” policy.

  23. MARKon 07 Dec 2008 at 12:43 pm

    the Walken Impersonation was by far the best

  24. Wayneon 18 Jan 2009 at 11:21 am

    I commend you for ignoring Frank Caliendo.

  26. Jeson 29 Jan 2009 at 4:54 pm

    Okay, so the Michael Caine impression actually frightened me….There’s something wrong and unnatural about his voice coming out of someone else’s mouth.

    But the Nicolas Cage one was amazing. Wow.

  27. proulxon 30 Jan 2009 at 12:41 am

    The kid that does stewie, is quite good at what he does. I checked out the jack sparrow video.. and if you close your eyes.. he sounds so much like him! Some of these people are incredible! ThumbsUp Stumble!

  28. alexsanernecropolison 30 Jan 2009 at 12:27 pm

    The “I Have No Clue what this is” one sounds like Josh Groban

  29. Seanon 03 Feb 2009 at 5:32 pm

    The Christopher Walken is damn good, but the best Walken is Jay Mohr. It’s uncanny.

  30. baileyon 09 Feb 2009 at 8:51 pm

    This guy does the best Walken I’ve ever seen:

  31. Apathygrrlon 09 Feb 2009 at 10:42 pm

    After I watched the Al Pacino one, I clicked on the link for Matt Damon doing an impression of Matthew McConaughey on Letterman. That was too funny. I know it’s doesn’t fit the rules of your list but I just had to mention it cuz it was hilarious. Also, a while ago I saw one of Jim Carrey doing David Caruso on Letterman. He’s so awesome.

  32. wormociouson 11 Feb 2009 at 10:51 pm

    I’d have to say that the best Walken impression I have ever seen is by Jay Mohr.

  33. joelleon 23 Feb 2009 at 1:39 am

    kevin spacey does the most INCREDIBLE impersonations you will ever see.

  34. xtheenderxon 25 Feb 2009 at 5:35 pm

    “I have no clue what this is” Thats actually a korean comedy show and the person was doing an impression of a famous korean pop song from back in the day, which is obviously a duet.

  35. Colinon 26 Feb 2009 at 3:15 am

    JEFF DAVIS!!! Jeff Davis does THE best Christopher Walken impersonation in the world! why is he not there?

    It’s a damn shame you didn’t include Eddie Murhpy impersonating Elvis in “Delirious” :)

  40. quebekeron 01 Jun 2009 at 5:04 pm

    Jay Mohr is better than any of these guys.
    Better than Caliendo.
    Is Colin Quinn is better than Colin Quinn.
    Same with Walken.
    And his Pacino is awesome.

    A couple clips of him on Opie and Anthony:

  41. lolon 02 Jul 2009 at 12:48 pm

    All the retards who are saying “Where’s Frank Caliendo?” need to reread the title of the damn post…

  42. lolon 02 Jul 2009 at 12:49 pm

    “It’s a damn shame you didn’t include Eddie Murhpy impersonating Elvis in “Delirious””

    You don’t recognize Eddie Murphy?

    That Walken was weak; you need to look harder. -.-

    that michael caine one was fantastic, even if you look at him, his facial expressions are spot one, if you’re reading this then good one mate

  48. Karlitoon 21 Nov 2009 at 7:12 pm

    I think one of the unknown ones is Se7en – I think he’s singing in Korean – the TV channel logo is of a Korean TV channel anyway. If it’s Japanese then I’m totally wrong. For example:

  49. le_petit_princeon 24 Nov 2009 at 12:45 pm

    The korean dude belongs to band called “Flower”
    He sings a song that was dueted by fast girl singer and a popera singer.

    It wasn’t exact portrayal of the song but pretty close match. It just funny for one man to do two toally different voice in on song.

  50. Drunkerthensh__on 01 Jan 2010 at 10:21 pm

    Best Walken evah!

  51. Murfadur1000on 10 Jan 2010 at 11:24 pm

    OMG that Walken is PERFECT. I could not stop lauhing. I however can do a pretty good Sean Connery, from when everybody tells me.

  52. triton2toroon 02 Feb 2010 at 9:45 pm

    I don’t get the big deal about a Walken impression- who the hell doesn’t do a Walken impression? Show me one I don’t see on a day to day basis…

    Vince Vaughn
    Go to the 4:00 mark

    Sarah Silverman- Rarely do you see a good femal impressionist.

  53. Conradon 15 Feb 2010 at 7:45 am

    go to youtube and check out Stevie Riks – this guy rocks!

  54. TMZon 18 Mar 2010 at 5:21 am

    I don’t get how no one else has mentioned this yet, but the Walken impression was a lip – synch. He wasn’t even moving his lips in synch with the audio. What the hell? And whoever said anyone can do Walken was right.

  55. john murphyon 01 Apr 2010 at 9:22 am

    Who would want to be any of these pathetic people in the first place.

  56. BSasser23on 04 May 2010 at 6:15 am

    The Howard Stern one was so dead-on I thought the real Stern was out to introduce the fake one until he lifted up his glasses.

  58. sammy gon 26 May 2010 at 3:35 pm

    C’mon where’s Jimmy Fallon? He’s the master of impersonation! Mick Jagger, Robert deniro… Just to name a few

  59. Fehon 31 May 2010 at 8:54 pm

    Lookup Kevin Pollak doing William Shatner. Now that’s awesome.

  60. Skiigge Boion 11 Jun 2010 at 12:48 am

    You forgot Max Koch. His Gary Busey, Nick Nolte, Al Pacino, Jack Nicholson and especially Tony Soprano are nerly unbeatable. And his writing is hilarious. I howl with laughter when I see him impersonate De Niro.

    Also, the kid doing Walken was good, but I think the guy who played Walken in the sketch he got the dialogue from did it better.

  61. mutanicon 20 Jun 2010 at 10:09 am

    Can’t believe you don’t have this one, probably the very best celebrity impersonation I’ve ever heard:

  62. Daniel Bluthon 14 Jul 2010 at 12:39 pm

    Kevin Barbare…hands down,can rattle off tons of spot on voices. Has some crappy videos on YouTube,but I was laughing at his impressions. On a morning radio show in Boston.

  64. Kieraon 04 Oct 2010 at 7:38 pm

    I think the one you have no clue of is Andrea Bocelli(spelling?) and Celine Dion.

  65. Hanson 22 Nov 2010 at 10:14 pm

    Ever seen the the Englishmen Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon at work? They destroy almost any other attempts.

  66. Rattenfängerinon 09 May 2011 at 2:21 am

    Look for Kristian Valen from Norway, he’s so funny and talented, I love him :-D

  67. cooperon 13 Jun 2011 at 11:23 pm

    the best impersonations i have ever seen were done by phil hartman, he was doing john wayne and jack Nicholson in german, it was crazy.

  68. Laurenon 04 Nov 2011 at 1:28 pm

    I don’t care if you can recognize him but Alec Baldwin does a KILLER Sean Connery impression and I love when Lou Diamond Phillips does Deniro too funny.

  69. Nickon 19 Jan 2012 at 10:08 am

    H Jon
    and more!!!

    Man, you must be deaf.
    most sucks, you seem so over-indulgent

  71. Tribolon 14 Dec 2012 at 2:23 pm

    If you want o good Christopher Walken go to youtube and search for Christopher Walkenthrough, it’s amazing and the episodes featuring Morgan Freeman are amazing

  72. Daveon 23 Jan 2013 at 2:21 pm

    Please see Jay Costa fromt he band Thy Will Be Done doing interviews as Christopher Walken before deeciding who’s the best ever… he’s actually done it for Walken HIMSELF! It’s Walken approved!

    here is an example

  73. billon 24 Jan 2013 at 2:33 pm

    rattenfangerin it sucked
