Man of a Thousand Voices Performs in Clearwater to Benefit Youth
Actor Jim Meskimen (Apollo 13, Frost/Nixon and TV's Parks and Recreation amongst others) is appearing in Clearwater FL on February 9th to perform his one-man show - "Jimpressions," a showcase of celebrity impressions from Barack Obama to James Bond.
Meskimen is known for his TV work in Whose Line is it, Anyway?, Fresh Prince of Bel Air, Castle, Rules of Engagement and Parks and Recreation, and films such as The Punisher, Not Forgotten and There Will Be Blood. His viral video, ‘Shakespeare in Celebrity Voices’ recently topped three-quarters of a million views and his array of hilarious impressions videos have cemented him as a major YouTube talent.
JIMPRESSIONS is a 90-minute tour de force in which Meskimen portrays his observations and experiences with over 65 different celebrities, including George Clooney, Kevin Spacey, William Shatner Morgan Freeman, and even Flipper.
JIMPRESSIONS was performed to a sellout crowd last year at the historic Capitol Theater. Meskimen is donating his time for this February 9th performance.
Tickets cost $35 for general admission and $50 for VIP seating. VIP ticket holders will have the opportunity to meet Mr. Meskimen at a special dessert reception and meet and greet.

The Fort Harrison has served as a hub for the Clearwater community since the 1920s and continues to do so today. In addition to the Scientologists who avail themselves of the religious retreat's accommodations while in Clearwater for religious services, the community at large also enjoys the Fort Harrison. Since re-opening following an extensive renovation in 2009, thousands from across the Tampa Bay region have gathered there for open house brunches and community events, such as the Sunscreen Film Festival’s annual "Night on Broadway" concert, Harlem Nights Jazz events and other benefits for the arts.
