Today we’re going to talk about creating impressions. You’ll hear about my process of creating my Melania Trump character, that will be featured in my book Inside Melania: What I Learned About Melania Trump by Impersonating Her that is out in March.
You’ll also hear from impersonator MJ Trump.
Today my character Melania Trump interviews impersonator MJ Trump.
MJ Trump is Michael Falato. “MJ Trump” started the week before Halloween 2015. Hearing comedian Ben Stein once wrote speeches for Nixon, MJ started writing a Tall Tale as future President Trump at Toastmasters. It was an Advanced Manual Public Relations Crisis Management Speech. “Kim Jong Fool, mess with America, we’ll turn you into Egg Foo Young!” Our Club President said it was a Saturday Night Live skit. He encouraged MJ to do it again and again. Halloween came later that week, MJ worked the door with a Sandy Ducan Wig turn backward & the Insane Improv couldn’t be stopped. Everyone loved the Donald & wanted their picture taken. Insulting people was natural for MJ being a Yankee Transplant. Growing up in the north (NJ & Virginia) helped MJ take to the role like a fat beaver to fresh wood.
Next was winning Club & Area Tall Tales Contest & Humorous Speech Contest at both levels as “MJ Trump.” Jan 2017, MJ TRUMP Hit the Comedy Clubs and started booking Private Events. MJ Trump is full of contagious positive energy. With over 400 performances” MJ” is on his 5th wig and the future looks absolutely YUGE. Future goal 55min on HBO.
