Impressionist Jim Meskimen America's Got Talent 2013

As a professional actor for nearly thirty years Jim Meskimen has appeared in the films Apollo 13, The Grinch, Frost/Nixon, The Punisher, Not Forgotten, There Will Be Blood and many others.  Some of Meskimen’s TV credits include recurring roles on Parks & Recreation, Fresh Prince of Bel Air, Friends, Whose Line is it, Anyway?, Castle, Lie to Me and Rules of Engagement. 

His impressions of political figures in the 2004 election were showcased in animated cartoons by JibJab that were among the most popular items on the web.  His viral Shakespeare in Celebrity Voices has nearly a million views and subsequent viral videos have cemented him as a major YouTube talent. 

In 2011, the Australian Today Show dubbed Meskimen, “The World’s Greatest Impressionist.” 

As a finalist on America’s Got Talent in 2013, he performed improvised celebrity impressions at Radio City Music Hall in New York City to a standing ovation. 

Jim Meskimen continues to supply new and unusual impressions for film and television, including George Clooney’s Monuments Men, where he provided the voice of President Harry Truman. 

He is currently starring in The Impression Guys, an original half-hour series on YouTube’s SoulPancake Channel, produced by Rainn Wilson and directed by Ben Shelton.  The series has been called, “The Best Web Series of 2014.” 

Meskimen lives in Los Angeles with his wife, actress and founder of The Acting Center school, Tamra Meskimen.  His daughter, Taylor, is also a performer, and his mother is actress Marion Ross, who was Emmy and Golden Globe nominated for her work on Happy Days (as Richie’s mom) and Brooklyn Bridge.

Topics of Presentation

Creating Your Life? Or is it Creating You? Do you feel that life runs you, instead of the other way around? Sometimes people forget that Life is very willing and able to mold, alter and even shrink you, but only when you decide to turn the tables on Life by being creative does the game start to be full of fun, adventure… and sometimes miracles.

I’ve been a professional painter, songwriter, author, illustrator, voice actor, director, sculptor, singer and actor. Creating my career every week is something I know like the back of my hand, and I know what the arts and creativity can do to improve your outlook, give you a fresh start, and wash away defeat and losses. I’ve lived it for my whole life, and I can promise you a fresh look at your own.

Oh, and you will laugh a lot, too.

In my talk, I show you how to:

  • Change your viewpoint at will
  • Use humor, even if you can’t tell a joke
  • Capture attention easily
  • Reinvent yourself anytime you want
  • Defeat that “defeated” feeling
