Ricky Gervais Does Celebrity Impressions On “Tonight Show” – WATCH VIDEO
Ricky Gervais did celebrity impressions, but with a funny twist, on Friday’s “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.” Watch below!
Fallon brought up Gervais’ new movie Special Correspondents, noting he’s one of the few cast members who speaks in his natural voice. The comedian responded, “The reason that I don’t do accents, it’s not that I can’t. It’s that I can’t be bothered. I’m a brilliant impressionist.” He went on to insist to a skeptical Fallon, “I’ll do any impression.”
“I don’t want to put you on the spot,” the host responded. But Gervais boasted, “It wouldn’t be putting me on the spot. I’m a genius. I’m the best… You see these things on YouTube, like 20 impressions in 20 seconds. I can do that. I’d beat that record. I’d do it better than them as well. I could break the record if I wanted.”
So then the two agreed Fallon would name celebrities and Gervais would impersonate as many as possible in 30 seconds. But when they started off with Robert De Niro, the British personality used a high-pitched voice. And it was a tone he just wouldn’t give up, no matter the star.
And when given Kim Kardashian, Gervais hilariously grabbed his chest (see photo above) and exclaimed, “Ooh, look at these!” Gossip Cop won’t spoil what he said for Bill Clinton. Check out the video below!
