(Bethlehem, Pennsylvania)— Best known for his impression of former President Bill Clinton on Saturday Night Live, Darrell Hammond will perform his stand-up act at Moravian College’s Johnston Hall on Friday, September 14 at 8 p.m.
Hammond is in his sixth season with "Saturday Night Live." His numerous impressions have been applauded by critics and viewers alike for their accuracy and range. His repertoire includes impressions of Ted Koppel, Jesse Jackson, Jay Leno and Phil Donahue among others.
Born and raised in Florida, Hammond began doing impressions as a child. After graduating from the University of Florida at Gainesville, Hammond lived in New York for several years and appeared in off-Broadway productions. He later returned to Florida and honed his skills as an impressionist, performing on local and national radio programs.
In April 1997, Hammond was applauded in the media for his dead-on impression of President Clinton during a surprise appearance with the President himself at an event before government officials and members of the Washington Press Corps. For the last several years, Hammond has been performing stand-up comedy and impressions throughout the country.
