As Saturday Night Live alum Dana Carvey explained to Howard Stern this week, he has taken to doing “micro-impressions” of celebrities and politicians, mostly just to “amuse” himself. And during the course of their conversation, he nailed 17 of them in just about two minutes.
There was Sean Connery “being asked if he would like to vacation in Spain,” Michael Caine “as a toddler,” as well as quick takes on his SNL castmates Norm Macdonald, Jon Lovitz and Dennis Miller. But of course, the most timely impressions were Donald Trump “still selling us” during World War III and Bernie Sanders explaining how he plans to redistribute the wealth.
Earlier this week, Carvey, who is promoting his new Netflix special, Straight White Male, 60, shared some longer impressions with Matt Lauer on the Today show, including his recreation of Bill Clinton’s Charlie Rose interview in which “the more he tried to defend” his wife’s pneumonia scare, “the bigger hole he dug.”
He also imitated how Donald Trump will handle climate change if he gets into office. “I will be so good with global warming, I’ll solve global warming and make CO2 pay for it, I can promise you that,” he said as Trump.
