Biography

Actor/Impressionist Jim Meskimen has been a professional actor for almost thirty years, but has made his biggest mark as a vocal impressionist, providing celebrity voices for viral Jibjab shorts, for late night TV, for films by Ron Howard and Michael Bay, and now on YouTube, where his recent Shakespeare in Celebrity Voices topped three quarters of a million views last year. The son of TV icon Marion Ross, Jim has been a professional audiobook director, cartoon character designer (he created characters for the 80's hit cartoon Thundercats) and fine artist, but he finds that what really defines him, ironically, is his uncanny ability to take on the personalities of others. His one-man show, JIMPRESSIONS now running in Hollywood, was created to be an inspiring journey across time and sound, through told through a wide variety of celebrity impressions, and true stories from Meskimen's unusual career.
