Since Obama has been in the political spotlight, comedians and impersonators have admitted to having a hard time getting down the presidents quirks and mannerisms, mainly because he doesnt seem to have any.
According to Janna Joos, who runs International Celebrity Images, a look-alike talent agency in Palm Springs, California, there are many reasons why Obama is hard to duplicate.
Not only do impersonators have to match his tall height, slim figure, funny ears, and darker skin tone, they also have to get his smooth voice down and what Joos calls his generic and controlled demeanor.
She says, Theyre having trouble getting the whole package.
Joos believes the inability for anyone to properly portray the prez may have an effect on the comedy world, but will protect Obama from ridicule.
