Ladies and gentleman, Elvis has left the building.
Wait, that wasn't Elvis. It was Michael Jackson. Or was it Eminem?
During Gordie Brown's "star-studded" show, you never know who may be coming or going. With a quick delivery of song- and joke-filled impressions, Bob Dylan might leave the building only to return as George W. Bush.
Brown pulls off his many impersonations of legends, (both dead and alive), dressed all in black, with limited props and a musical flair. He often rewrites the lyrics of popular songs resulting in hilarious consequences.
Commenting that singer Neil Young is no longer that young, Brown alters the rocker's lyrics for "Heart of Gold" from, "I want to live, I want to give" to "I was a stoner, now I need a donor." Willie Nelson's "To All the Girls I've Loved Before" becomes "To All the Plants I've Smoked Before." The Rolling Stone's Mick Jagger, meanwhile, sings about the flapping of his enormous lips and his likeness to a big mouth bass.
Not all Brown's impersonations are musical. For instance, with the movie "Batman" employing so many different actors in the lead role over the years, Brown takes a series of celebrities through his own version of "Batman" auditions. Among the competitors are Robin Williams, Woody Allen, Alan Thicke and Jay Leno. Even Bill Cosby throws his hat in the ring, offering up his Jell-o pudding as a deadly weapon against the Joker.
Oftentimes, Brown interacts with the audience in one character or another. So, make sure you don't show up late or get up to go to the bathroom during the performance -- or you may end up being mocked by Bill Clinton.
Brown puts on a highly energized show that has audiences laughing in their seats or rolling in the aisles, begging for mercy.
As his moon-walking Michael Jackson puts it: "Don't make me laugh. My nose is going to fall off!"
