This entertaining, joke-filled interview with comedian and impersonator Rich Little has Bob and Suzanne breaking up in laughter throughout the conversation.
Rich shares details of his childhood and early years as the ultimate “class clown” and talks about driving his teachers crazy by imitating them in front of fellow students just before the teacher walked in and repeated what young Rich had just said.
You’ll hear Rich slip seamlessly into a series of characters with his uncanny impersonations of various celebrities including Cary Grant, Dean Martin, Johnny Carson, Bing Crosby, and Jimmy Stewart and of politicians like Ronald Reagan, Richard Nixon and Donald Trump...all while telling the improbable story of his own unique career.
Known as “the Man of a Thousand Voices,” Rich Little’s television career is the stuff of legend. He reveals his debt to singer Mel Tormé for getting him his first gig on The Judy Garland Show and how that lead to his appearances on hundreds of TV shows as guest star, host, and series regular over the past thirty years.
Throughout the laughs, Rich talks about appearing weekly at the Tropicana Hotel in Las Vegas and shares great “behind the scenes” backstage stories and details of his classic memoir Little by Little: People I’ve Known and Been.
