Time Out says

At this masterful showcase, Trump Lear actor David Carl takes his impression of the president to disturbing, mesmerizing new levels. At this epic gambit, he unleashes an armada of deranged characters, from Miss Piggy to Nick Nolte. Don't miss the daring mix of character sketches, games, challenges and beyond from the singular performer.

Astounding impressions and impersonations tossed with clever setups, improv, audience participation (voluntary) and comedy all wrapped up in one hour that feels like 10 minutes. This guy should be playing Vegas any day now.


Saw "200 Impressions" on Saturday, I highly recommend it!  Through some alchemy of voice placement and facial contortions, David is able to jump from Christopher Walken to Al Pacino circa The God Father to Al Pacino circa Scent of a Woman to all the other human beings he conjures in an hour - it's an amazing feat, a master class in the art of impressions, and really #^$@ funny.  Go see it!


David Carl's Trump Lear was hilarious, harrowing and hard to listen to b/c his impression was so dead on! What a relief to get 45 out of my ears ... he appears, but only for a few seconds, given all the other white guys to be impersonated in this virtuoso solo turn. My favorite was Calvin Coolidge.... how many impressions of Calvin Coolidge have you heard?

Saw the first performance of this and it was amazing! As great as he is an impressionist, David was even more so an entertainer and you could tell he was having fun the entire time which filled the audience with energy. Surprisingly, each of the 200 impressions was truly unique enough to be distinguished from each other. My favorites were Ray Romano and Shouting Tom Hanks!
