Press Release (ePRNews.com) - LAS VEGAS - Feb 20, 2017 - After a yuuuuge, heated competition that aired today on ABC’s The View, Donald Trump impersonator, John Di Domenico, walked away with First Place honors. Celebrating his Presidents’ Day victory from Las Vegas, Di Domenico, knows his orange make-up is red hot.
“I’m No. 1, I’m the best, this is fantastic,” said John in his Trump character voice.
It’s not just the $4,000 wig or the orange make-up that makes Di Domenico’s impression of former candidate/real estate mogul-turned President red-hot, it’s the fact that after 12 years of doing it, he dominates the playing field in mannerisms and Trump-speak.
“Today’s appearance on The View was great fun – I’ve been imitating Trump since the early days of The Apprentice, so I’ve had some practice,” he said. “Part of creating the persona of a great impression is simple: observation. I’m a student of Trump mannerisms and nuances.” While Trump’s hair has remained a signature characteristic, his speaking style has changed since announcing his run. Di Domenico has changed his impression and physicality to fit the President’s dynamic oratory style.
The View’s panel of judges was comprised of comedian, master impersonator and the original ‘Donald Trump’ from SNL, Darrell Hammond and The View co-hosts Joy Behar and Sarah Haines. The televised “Trump-off” was inspired by a social media call for auditions by The Laugh Factory in Los Angeles, who is looking for a great Trump impersonator.
According to The Hollywood Reporter “Laugh Factory is launching a Trump impersonator contest, asking interested comedians to post a video clip of their work on YouTube and then tweet the link to @TheLaughFactory (https://twitter.com/TheLaughFactory) with the hashtag, #TrumpImpression. The winner of the contest will be named as host of LaughFactory.com’s (http://www.laughfactory.com/) new channel “Fake News/Real News” in addition to headlining gigs at Laugh Factory clubs.” The View producers saw some of the great You Tube videos posted and invited three of their favorites to compete for their Presidents’ Day broadcast.
Di Domenico, who boasts 30 impersonations overall – including Austin Powers which People Magazine has dubbed the ‘best in the business,’ has spent the last 18 months in overdrive as Donald Trump interviewing on nearly 200 news and TV feature programs worldwide – from ABC Nightline News, CNN Money and NBC network news to various programs on the BBC and in Australia, India, Ireland and South Africa to name a few. Di Domenico’s Trump impersonation has been seen by over 8 million households worldwide.
