For those who don’t know, Reggie Brown was the guy behind the Obama impersonation at the Republican Leaders Convention this past weekend.
On Saturday, Brown poked fun at both the President and various republican candidates for the 2012 Presidential Election. According to Brown Newt Gingrich supporters were “dropping faster than Anthony Weiner’s pants.” The fun and games stopped when Brown joked about current Presidential candidate Rep. Michele Bachmann, he was approached and suddenly told it was a wrap ― his time was up.
Brown, a native of Illinois, used to spend his days busing tables at a north-side Chicago restaurant. So if there was a time you thought you saw Obama busing tables, chances are it was Brown. Coincidentally then Senator Obama had an office not too far from where Brown worked. Brown was an aspiring model when he was 19 and was told by his older brother he looked like Obama, we guess the lightbulb went off in his head and a new career endeavour was born.
Tina Fey, who is notoriously known for her prized Sarah Palin impersonation, may have some new competition! After seeing Brown at the RLC we’re convinced there’s a new comedian on the loose in the world of politics. Believe it or not he has his own gang of celebrity impersonators, everyone from Sarah Palin to Oprah Winfrey. Take a look at his posse.
