About Bob Anderson
Bob Anderson started a genre in show business that became one of the most popular forms of entertainment on stage today. Merv Griffin, the well known talk show host, discovered Bob’s unique talent one evening at his Hollywood Hills home and decided to introduce him to the world on the next taping of his TV show from Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. Griffin introduced Bob as “The Singing Impressionist.” The audience response to his performance was overwhelming.
Soon after that appearance he became a regular on the TV talk show circuit performing over 100 national TV shows including; HBO, Showtime, Regis, David Letterman and The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson where Bob again received such a grand audience response on his Tuesday appearance that Johnny invited him back just two days later for another appearance. In all, he made seven Tonight Show appearances and became Johnny Carson’s opening act for a number of his Las Vegas engagements.
When People Magazine, named Bob Anderson “America’s Greatest Singing Impressionist”…it was truly a wonderful compliment; however, Bob Anderson is not an impressionist…he is an Actor who rates with Bennett and Sinatra as a jazz saloon singer. What separates Bob from other impressionist is his mastery of the signature stylings of each individual that he recreates, and his level of detail that he devotes to each recreation. He is an actor who becomes his subjects.
Other impressionists provide short caricature sketches to get a laugh. Bob takes on the personality of the artists in every way. Tom Jones and Jack Jones, both got it right when they said, “The reason Bob is the best at what he does, is because he actually sings as well as the person he is doing!”
From Paris, to Monte Carlo, to New York City and Las Vegas, Bob’s powerful voice, engaging style and incredible talent captivates music lovers of every generation. If your desire is to get a taste of what the greatest singers and entertainers were really all about…you must catch a Bob Anderson performance at one of the great nightspots around the world. When the lights come up, don’t be surprised if you’re sitting next to Tony Bennett or Tom Jones.
