Cocal mimicry is as useful as it is amusing.
Certain people have simply developed the skill to such an incredible extent that they sound exactly the same as the people they imitate. That might come in handy when producing some effects to make an ad more interesting.
You can also simply entertain an audience—as comedian Charlie Hopkinson does.
According to Hopkinson, his biggest passion is making people laugh.
Born and raised in England, Hopkinson is a contemporary impressionist who still lives in Yorkshire.
However, the man with numerous voices travels around and performs worldwide.
His YouTube account has got 302,000 subscribers, and thousands of people follow him on Instagram as well.
Hopkinson is an expert in accents and impressions, he tries to design his acts according to the current most popular series or shows. That’s where Charlie’s versatility comes from—he can do anyone from Morgan Freeman and Liam Neeson to Harry Potter and Tom Hardy. The talented fellow pointed out that he loves everything about the show Peaky Blinders, and those are his favorite impressions. Charlie even does impressions of Ada and Polly, the female characters from Peaky Blinders.
He’s also a cast member of Channel 4 and the Netflix show Lookalikes.
Yes, Charlie’s been busy for quite some time! Everyone wants a piece of a man who took a piece of everyone else when he learned to copy all those voices. Hopkinson is constantly trying to improve his act, and he has put out some updates here and there.
We recommend watching the whole video—the act about the retired math teacher is hysterical!
Charlie does a lot of comedic dubs where he talks like an actor but doesn’t say what the character said in the movie.
We laughed a lot, and so did everyone in that room—his punch lines are so good!
Not only does he perform top-shelf impressions and hilarious jokes, Hopkinson also does an incredible job of tying those jokes together.
The act has got a lot of sense and it flows naturally.
Charlie is relaxed as if he went out to grab a coffee with some of his friends! Even though he makes it look completely natural, it usually takes a lot of energy to appear to be so effortless.
His impression of Morgan Freeman’s voice is just a warm-up.
Hopkinson does such a good impression of Freeman that it’s almost unbelievable, but that’s not even the only one! He can also sound like Liam Neeson, Sir David Attenborough, Robin Williams, Jon Snow, Tommy Shelby, Jesse Pinkman, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Robert De Niro, Black Panther of the Marvel films and a lot more characters.
What a great job it must be to make people laugh doing characters that everybody loves!
Well Charlie, if we didn’t see you doing the act, you would have had us believe that we’re hearing someone else.
The funny outline of jokes is what makes Hopkinson’s personality come through after all. We’re guessing we’re going to be seeinga lot more from this talented comedian, and we’re looking forward to future performances!
