Featuring more than 25 celebrity icon voices, including Cary Grant, George Burns, Ronald Reagan, Katharine Hepburn and John Wayne, among others, “Jimmy Stewart & Friends” will take you on an adventure through the life of the famed Jimmy Stewart.

U.S. Presidents: John F. Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton, both George Bushes and Barack Obama…Rich Little has a voice for every administration. Infamous for his skewering of political figures, Little has charmed, amused, intrigued and gotten the best of politicians from here to his nativeCanada. A master mimic of more than 200 voices, Little continues to impress with regular stops around theUnited States andCanada.

In his early 20s, Little was discovered while working in the United States. His friend, singer Mel Torme, then on the musical team of CBS network’s “The Judy Garland Show,” asked him to make a tape. Instead of the usual impressions, Little did voices nobody did, including Alfred Hitchcock, Orson Welles and Dennis Weaver. Garland thought it was great, particularly his James Mason, and Little was signed to the show.

Little has appeared on TV variety shows starring Ed Sullivan, Jackie Gleason, Glen Campbell and Dean Martin, as well as on series such as “Laugh-In,” “The John Davidson Summer Show” and “The Julie Andrews Show.” Little also had his own variety show in the 70s and was the star of the TV show “KopyKats.” Little was a guest host early on for “The Tonight Show,” hosting 12 times. He quickly became a household name sitting in one of the “Hollywood Squares” and went on to do the “Muppet Show.”

Named “Comedy Star of the Year” by the American Guild of Variety Artists, Little was the perpetrator of nine comedy albums and three HBO comedy specials, as well as the Emmy Award winning specials “Rich Little’s Christmas Carol” with “W.C. Fields” as Scrooge, “Humphrey Bogart” as one of the ghosts and “Paul Lynde” as Bob Cratchit.
