Bob Jay (and Ozzy, The Joker, Jack Nicholson, Homer Simpson...)

I met comedian-impressionist Bob Jay through  Bob (as Ozzy) was with the PsychoBabble crew at a celebrity con.  Watching him perform his craft was hilarious.
The key to a great impressionist is the content to accompany the impression.  You have to be able to be funny, while still maintaining the intended persona.  Bob as Ozzy killed.
I have seen Bob do other impressions, as well as perform comedy on his own.  The guy is pure gold.  He also happens to be a really nice guy.
I highly encourage everyone to check out Bob at a comedy club.  You can also seehim on and a bunch of his videos on YouTube.  If you're lucky, you might be able to see him in action at a comic con at some point.  If you see Ozzy (or the Joker, Jack Nicholson or other out of place celeb) doing an interview, chances are it is Bob!
"Ozzy" and me in Schaumburg, IL-November 2015.
