Mimicry artist is performer whose act consists of giving the impression of being someone else by imitating other person’s voice and mannerisms. and the rarest combination of mimicry with Stand-up Comedy is one of the most difficult arts in the World. Being able to make a bunch of strangers laugh with your amazing skill of voice modulation is a fantastic skill. Mimicry has been studied phonetically to a very minor extent. This is quite surprising considering the interest in the phenomenon among the general public. The phenomenon has, however, an interest that goes far beyond the area of public entertainment.
