If there’s one thing that has been on everyone’s mind this year, it’s definitely the US Presidential Elections! There were many moments that made us wonder if we were on The Truman Show and the circumstances leading to the current presidential elect, were indeed surreal. Saturday Night Live’s (SNL) ratings have been soaring from their presidential election parodies this year.

ABOUT THE COMEDIANS: REGGIE BROWN
No stranger to the stage, Chicago native and actor/comedian Reggie Brown began his acting career at age six playing Dopey in a production of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves. He began to develop a passion for impressionism at an early age, mimicking voices and gestures to entertain his friends and family. In his early professional years, Reggie dabbled in radio and voice over work.
“The most in-demand Barack Obama impersonator on the open market in the world”
After years of garnering attention for his uncanny physical resemblance to Barack Obama, he worked long and hard to develop his impression of the 44th Commander in Chief and has since deservedly earned the moniker the “Comedian in Chief”. Reggie has traveled all over the world performing both comedic and dramatic portrayals of his Presidential character and has been featured on every major media and news outlet. Reggie Brown has become known as one of the most successful impersonators in the world, having performed on countless stages including: Broadway, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Workaholics, The Today Show, Hannah Montana & many more!
