Celebrity impersonators are quickly becoming one of the most popular types of performers attending events in 2022. Not only are they able to carry a party on their shoulders by showing off how similar to the real deal they look, but the personality they put on for the character or person can be a lot of fun too.
Celebrity impersonators are amazing performers: this is why people love them so much.
The Initial Surprise of Recognition
The first time you see a celebrity impersonator, there’s always a half moment of recognition where your brain doesn’t catch that they’re an impersonator, and all you see is the celebrity or actor. This feeling can be reminiscent of kids seeing Santa impersonators in stores and can leave you starstruck for just that brief second.
Even if you’re looking at Jerome LeBlanc, and it’s not really Tom Cruise, it’s still fun for that brief moment to have that fantasy of running into him in person. As we move past this feeling, we get to move into the comedy of what’s really happening, but that’s still fun.
The Fun of Interacting With a Character or ‘Celebrity’
Everyone has a celebrity they’d love to meet but probably never will. Getting to interact with a celebrity impersonator gives you the chance to have fun getting to talk to someone whose whole act is pretending that they’re this person.
If you know someone who’s a huge fan of Dolly Parton or Elvis, having a performer put on an act as them can give you the fun feeling of actually being around that person.
The Chance to Take Fun Pictures and Videos
We all love a great photo op! Celebrity impersonators are one of the best ways to grab a photo that feels like you’re standing with the real deal, even though you’re standing with someone in costume who’s just putting on the facade of being that person.
Half of the fun of this is getting to post pictures and videos online and watch as people react in confusion and shock if they don’t realize this is an impersonator at first. Of course, you should always come clean eventually and be clear you didn’t meet the real person, but it’s always fun to pretend and play into it a little bit before you do!
Seeing a Character or ‘Celebrity’ in New Situations
There’s something stunning and fun about seeing celebrities or characters in new situations that you’ve never seen before. Can you believe Cher is at the punch bowl? Have you ever thought you’d run into Beyonce while sitting down for dinner at a party? Of course, these aren’t really the celebrities or characters they play, but they give you a moment of fun fantasy, getting to see someone in an event or space you’d never expect them to.
Celebrity Impersonators Are Always Fun
Whether you’ve spotted Marilyn Monroe or you just ran into Ted Cruise, there’s no end to the countless ways celebrity impersonators can shock and amaze. Consider hiring one of these impersonators for your next event!
