It’s easy to waste time on websites like YouTube, and I often come away from such sessions wondering why I started browsing in the first place.  There are exceptions, moments when one finds something brilliant that makes it all worth while.

One such moment for me was discovering the impressionist and actor Jim Meskimen.  He’s truly brilliant in what he can do with his voice and actions, and I think it was extra brilliant of him to combine impressions with Shakespeare, as he did in one YouTube video (which went viral).

Here is the link for the video, which I recommend you take the four minutes to watch.  It’s well worth it.

Jim Meskimen is the type of entertainer that is family-friendly, entertaining, and inspiring.  He really is a vocal genius, and deserves the accolades he’s gotten recently.
