PRAISE FROM HIS PEERS
“Rich Little is a television icon who took the art of impressionism to heights previously unreached. Not just perfectly capturing voices, quirks and mannerisms, Rich came up with brilliant comedic material with the words he put in the mouths of those fortunate enough to have been impersonated. And he helped get us all through some very rough years —-Viet Nam, Watergate and the struggle of Civil Rights — by bringing us much-needed comedic relief and the medicinal magic of laughter. Congratulations to a great colleague and humanitarian!”

“Just recently I rewatched The Nanny episode starring Rich Little and Jay Leno. Rich played an ORS man who did impersonations and in one scene he managed to go seamlessly from George Burns to Carol Channing and Johnny Carson all for Leno who played himself! It’s scenes like that that made The Nanny classic television. Rich Little is as good as they get and as sweet as they come! Many congrats on this well deserved recognition!”
