Dear Bob,
Your reply to the 'Perfect Impressions' set-up brings to mind an old Benny
Hill [English] TV program in which he features a quick-change-artist act.
It finishes disastrously when he follows his Louis Armstrong (in black face)
impression with a Marlene Dietrich (in 'Blue Angel' costume) imitation but,
during the behind-the screen costume change-over, 'forgets' to remove the
Louis' make-up.
Hilarious. I still giggle when I think about it!
I love that old vaudeville stuff.
Kind regards,
