8th Grader Impersonates Presidential Candidates In Best Graduation Speech Ever
Impressions are a big part of many comedians’ acts. I myself take great pride in my ability to impersonate Sean Connery, Shaggy from “Scooby-Doo” and one of the local drunks at my favorite watering hole.
But 14-year-old Jack Aiello from Thomas Middle School in Arlington Heights, Illinois, recently made me and probably most others look like absolute amateurs after he delivered a hysterical eight-minute speech at his eighth-grade graduation ceremony earlier this month, as he showcased his amazing range and talent with spot-on impersonations of both current and former 2016 presidential candidates, as well as the current commander-in-chief.
Aiello’s parents said Jack has been doing impressions since he was very young, and his dream is to one day meet SNL-great Dana Carvey. Although if that happens, we’re not sure who’ll be the one asking for advice from the other.
Well done, kid.

That speech was almost as good as this one: Amy Schumer’s Acceptance Speech At The Glamour Awards Was Awesome (NSFW Language)
