Angela Hoover

Hometown:  Redondo Beach, CA

Tell us a little about yourself in a few sentences: I moved around from state to state growing up, sometimes living somewhere only 11 months.  The longest I lived anywhere before the age of 12 was three-and-a-half years. I was always the new kid. I loved making people laugh as a way of connecting. I am also a mom of two. Besides my friends, the first celebrity impression I ever took a stab at was Katharine Hepburn.  I was 10.

What drew you to doing impressions?  I was always fascinated with people and mimicked them from a very young age. I thought that other people were much more interesting than me.

Who was your comedic inspiration? Carol Burnett, Gene Wilder, John Ritter

Why do you think you’ll be America’s favorite impressionist? I hope people enjoy my impressions, feel inspired to try some of their own, and don't ever ask me this question again.
