America’s number one political impressionist
Political impressionist/satirist Jim Morris has former President Clinton, Newt Gingrich and a host of others headed for the hills. The rubber-faced Morris has become famous as a living political cartoon. Morris captures all of the attitude, optimism and befuddled essence of our nation’s leaders.
Jim, who has always been interested in politics, humor and impersonating authority figures, discovered his talent while in high school, where he debuted over the school’s public address system as the principal. After attending Boston University and the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, Jim left the classroom behind and took to the stage.
With a slew of national TV appearances to his credit, including The Tonight Show, CNN’s Crossfire, Larry King Live, and HBO’s Comic Relief, he has also triumphed in several face to face encounters with the subjects of his humor at the traditional Washington, and White House Correspondents Dinners; at historic Ford’s Theater; and even in the Oval Office!
Jim’s ability to fully submerge himself within each character enables him to envelop their particular political beliefs, moral ideologies and personality quirks. Jim’s critically acclaimed one-man press conferences showcase his uncanny impressions of Clinton, Gore, Gingrich, Bush, Reagan, Brokaw, Rather, Koppel, Rooney, Limbaugh, Carson, Leno … and many others.
With the intensity of the clash between the administration and the new Congress we can look forward to a continuation of his astute slings and arrows. And as another election approaches, Jim enters the race yet again with impressions of Bob Dole, Pat Buchanan, Ross Perot and other hopefuls.
As politicians come and go, Jim Morris’ comedy endures.
Says Jim: “I’m no lame duck comedian.”
