Seth Meyers may not have been known for his impressions during his time at SNL, but the comedian has taken to peppering ‘A Closer Look’ and Corrections with an ever-growing collection of impressions ranging from politicians to celebrities to (caricatures of) his own staff. He told IndieWire that the fun of his impressions comes from not thinking too hard about them:
Below, find the details of Seth’s journey to becoming the next “impression guy” thanks to Impression Camp.
Seth's First Trip
Seth jokes that he’s going to spend his Olympic break at a re-education camp so he can learn how to say “substantive” without double-clutching.
Seth Is Back From Camp
After impersonating Donald Trump Jr., Al Pacino and Ted Cruz, Seth says he just spent his 2-week hiatus at “Impression Camp” as a counselor. After a questionable impression of Liam Neeson, he says they didn’t get to Neeson at “Impressions Camp” because they made him come back to work.
Seth Has a Problem
Seth impersonates Jimmy Carter before reminding the audience that he spent his 2-week hiatus at Impression Camp. He does his Vince Vaughn impression and then admits to the audience that Impression Camp is where you go to stop doing impressions.
Shoemaker Enables Seth
Seth does a lengthy Mike Lindell impression before explaining that producer Mike Shoemaker had texted him the night before and said there would be plenty of time for ‘A Closer Look.’ He asks Shoemaker why he’d do that when he knows Seth was at Impression Camp to stop doing impressions. Seth also says that when he went to Impression Camp he also went to Tangent Camp.
