So over this September 5, 2017 - 1:29 pm

This is definitely not the 100 celebrity impersonators, they are the bottom feeders. A list artist wouldn’t be caught at this dog & pony show. The producer is a hack that specialized in singing telegrams. Also certainly not the largest. Reel tribute artist do not need to attend these costume contest. We’re SAG actors and international acts known as the very best in stage impressions, Hollywood productions and print ads. It really is an outrage that this con artist continues to hawk his crap convention as anything other than a crap self serving joke among the true professionals who wouldn’t be caught dead at these events.
