Impressionist

Jimmy James

I am loving Jimmy James’ Marilyn. He said on Donahue in 1987 that he realized he could do Marilyn because he was studying bone structure as a make-up artist and discovered that his was quite similar to hers. His Marilyn is delicious to me, he captures her in a way that has boldness and class without feeling like an impersonation at all. See his slightly raunchy yet very classy performance here.
