Gary Wilner does a fantastic job with his impressions of Frank Sinatra...Nat Cole... Elvis... etc. And amazingly enough, he does them all without moving his lips. He's a ventriloquist and uses life-sized dummies of the above vocalists.

Where does Gary work? There was a Canadian fella I saw a couple of years ago in Las Vegas that was awesome too.
Stay tooned.

Pam Mattheson is top notch. She does Streisand, Cher, Liza, all the biggies.

There was/is someone named Jim(?) Pierce, who did amazing impressions of Judy Garland, Peggy Lee and others. In fact, he billed himself as an illusionist, because of the amazing re-creations of these diva-icons.

I may be confusing impressionists...but I think his name was JIM BAILEY, who did the singing impressions.
I think someone named Charles Pierce, did speaking/non-singing impressions of Bette Davis, etc.

And then there was the guy that did the harmless impression of one of the three tenors.
I think he was Placebo Domingo.
:D
