A master mimic of more than 200 voices, Rich continues to impress with a touring schedule throughout the United States and Canada. 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 native Canada. A professed classic movie buff, he’s particularly fond of doing Jimmy Stewart, Jack Lemmon, John Wayne and Humphrey Bogart, but Little has also latched on to baby boomer-friendly characters, such as Paul Lynde, Kermit the Frog, Andy Rooney and Dr. Phil, to name a few.

 

In January 2010, Rich became a United States citizen and was sworn in, with a suggestion from the judge to do it as John Wayne! His wife at the time, Marie, passed away that year. In her honor, he created the Marie and Rich Little Foundation, which focuses on helping children, the homeless and animals in need. Rich is also very supportive of causes for the armed services. 100% of proceeds from the sale of merchandise at his performances are donated to The Gary Sinise Foundation. He is currently working on his latest project, “Little by Little” a self-written, humorous show about his life, featuring over 30 characters.  And he wrote a book called Little by little (Celebrities I’ve Known and Been) which came out in August.
