CELEBRITY IMPERSONATOR

ABOUT THE SHOW

Americans are enamored with celebrities. People of all ages from pre-teens to baby boomers view celebrities with awe and admiration. A celebrity impersonator is an artist who copies or imitates a world-famous celebrity such as a musician, movie star, politician, athlete, comedian, or royalty. Many talented individuals have devoted their performing career to “becoming” someone else. .Las Vegas is world-famous for its many tribute shows and plethora of celebrity look-alikes. Celebrity impersonators are becoming increasingly popular worldwide as stage performing artists and are considered the next best thing when the “real” star is unavailable. It is speculated that there are nearly 30,000 Elvis impersonators around the world, with as many as 500 in Las Vegas alone! Not only do American’s adore celebrity impersonators, but they also have an affinity for watching TV talent competitions. American Idol, Dancing with the Stars, and America’s Got Talent, to name a few, are current immensely popular reality competition shows. It makes sense for Celebrity Impersonators to be the next reality show sensation.
