This week’s episode of Ed & Friends features talented impressionist, comedian, and filmmaker Tai Campbell.
Tai is the creator of The Impressionismists, a YouTube Channel where he and fellow impressionist Angus Dunican perform competing impressions for your viewing pleasure.
Ed and Tai chat about the work it takes to create a convincing impression, the transformative physical process and the practice it takes. And they have a bunch of fun doing it, with surprise appearances from Barack Obama, Stephen Hawking, Matthew McConaughey and many more…. ehem.. celebs.
