Scenes from the Impersonators Convention

This is one of those times when pictures tell the story better than words. If you want words, you can read my New York Times piece on the celeb-impersonators convention and the Reel Awards. I'll just clarify for you that these are NOT drag queens. I'm pretty sure all of these imitators were the same sex as their subject matter. And most were really, really convincing.

Two Marilyns. One good, one not so much, huh?

George Burns and Donald Trump, with Tom Cruise and Jay Leno in the background.
