The Greatest Prank Call Ever

The finest impressionist entertainer on Earth.

André-Philippe Gagnon [Wikipedia] is a Québécois impressionist entertainer. His act is unique for his specialized talent in impersonating the singing voices of celebrities as opposed to his contemporaries who typically can do only the speaking voices. He’s known for doing all the 18 voices in the classic We Are The World. He even imitates a saxophone here [Youtube], the Pink Panther anyone?

The Sinatra Group

A reminder of how great "Saturday Night Live" can be. From the 1990-91 season, here's Phil Hartman as Frank Sinatra doing a roundtable show a la "The McLaughlin Group."

To this day, I don't understand why Hartman's taunt to Sting (as Billy Idol) -- "I've got chunks of guys like you in my stool" -- didn't become a national catchphrase. Look for the always underrated Jan Hooks as Sinead O'Connor, Chris Rock as Luther Campbell, Victoria Jackson as Eydie Gorme, and Mike Myers as Steve Lawrence...

Sam Kinison Mocks Religion, Marriage And Family.

Samuel “Sam” Burl Kinison (December 8, 1953 – April 10, 1992) was an American stand-up comedian and actor. Kinison was famous for his extremely raunchy humor and amazingly wild, colorful outfits. A former revival-style preacher, his standup routines were most often characterized by intense, angry ranting and punctuated by his trademark scream. Kinison was voted #20 in Comedy Central’s 100 Greatest
Stand-ups of All Time.
