James Adomian’s Bernie Sanders
The brilliant comic and impressionist James Adomian, known by many as “George W. Bush” in the Harold & Kumar Guantanomo movie, has a new character in his astonishing repertoire: Senator Bernie Sanders, candidate for President. As with all of Adomian’s creations (Alan Rickman as the Sherriff of Nottingham, Orson Welles, Tom Leykis), the vocal resemblance is uncannily hilarious and the verbiage precise — “We’ve looked at the numbahs!” Adomian has shared his latest work at small comedy venues in Los Angeles. But don’t fret. We foresee Adomian’s Sanders pontificating on SNL very soon.
