Manny Silver's day job is singing cantorial music and preparing children for their Bar Mitzvah and Bat Mitzvah at Temple Beth El in Hollywood, Florida. But when the lights go down low, he turns into a comedian, impressionist and singer.
Silver has a talent for mastering the cadence and inflection of many performers and politicians. In the six minute video below, he gives his impersonations of Johnny Cash, Bill Clinton, Kermit the Frog, Rodney Dangerfield, Barack Obama, Ronald Reagan, Richard Nixon, Jimmy Carter, Neil Diamond, Larry the Cable Guy, Judge Judy, Dr. Phil, Placido Domingo, Charlie Rich, The Big Bopper, Tony Bennett, and Jackie Mason.
