The Hollywood Museum, the ultimate destination for tourists and movie fans, will honor impressionist Rich Little on Friday, June 1 with a brief exhibit unveiling items from his career representing George Burns, Dean Martin and Johnny Carson. Following the unveiling, Little will sign copies of his memoir, Little by Little: People I’ve Known and Been. The book signing begins at 6:30pm and is open to the public. All proceeds from the signing will benefit veterans through the Gary Sinise Foundation.
ABOUT RICH LITTLE: The master mimic of more than 200 voices, Rich Little has a voice for every administration, including U.S. Presidents: John F. Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton, both George Bushes, Barack Obama and Donald Trump. In fact, infamous for his skewering of political figures, Little has charmed, amused, intrigued and gotten the best of politicians from here to his native Canada. He entertained at both of Reagan’s presidential inaugurations, and President Reagan was reported to have said, “You do me better than I do.”
