The Best Celebrity Impersonators Ever

The best celebrity impressionists ever include some legendary comics and impersonators like Rich Little, Will Jordan and Will Jordan, along with some modern-day comedians like Jim Carrey, Dana Carvey and, more recently, Jay Pharoah. This list includes some of the masters of comedic impressions and impersonations, but it isn't complete: Be sure to add any of your favorite impressionists who are missing (and vote for the best).

Doing a truly great impression of someone else takes great skill. It's more than just scrunching up your face and saying "Come on, make my day" and then passing it off as Clint Eastwood. Anyone who can do amazing impressions must be able to pull off physical comedy. It's about getting the gestures, the voice inflection and the attitude of the person just right. On top of that, you've got to be funny. That's a tall order, but several great comedians have found the perfect formula.

Who are the best celeb impersonators? Some of the best impressionists ever are (or were) cast members on 'Saturday Night Live' or other sketch comedy shows. Among them: Phil Hartman, Joe Piscopo, Dana Carvey, Adam Sandler, Will Ferrell and Darrell Hammond. Tina Fey earns a place of honor on this list for her hilarious, and nearly perfect, impression of Sarah Palin.
