About this project
Sarah Palin impersonators sing together. United we play by creating political humor better than Saturday Night Live, HBO, and live comedy on Sunset Boulevard and New York's Broadway. Earn credit by supporting our project as we create the DVDs, photography, and film scrips that walk hand-in-hand with this comedy.
Seeking Sarah Palin Impersonators since the Summer of 2008.
Tina Fey played Sarah Palin for SNL, Julianne Moore stars in HBO's movie, Julia Louis Dreyfus revisits Palin in the comedy sitcom Veep, and Kathy Griffin took Sarah to Glee and Broadway in New York City. But there are thousands of Sarah Palin impersonators. I collect their stories. From Hollywood to Las Vegas, San Francisco's SFO to Los Angeles LAX, I take pictures with Sarah Palin outside of Bohemian Grove in Monte Rio wine country near Santa Rosa, Sonoma, and then drive down the coast to Malibu, Santa Barbara, and Sarah Palin impersonators find me online when they arrive back from Baghdad, Iraq, Manhattan, New York City, and Chicago: Actresses, male models, showgirls, Las Vegas burlesque queens at the casino nightclubs. People like dressing up as Sarah Palin. I interview their impersonation.
Join me as I create books with the footage I have collected from San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge to Las Vegas, Nevada. Male and female impersonators from Charlie Chaplin's studio in West Hollywood to surfers posing with our Sarah Palin by the boardwalk of Venice Beach, Santa Monica and UCLA's Westwood near Beverly Hills, California.
Material includes: Footage dealing with advertising, film screenplays in Hollywood, the demand for Sarah Palin material in Hollywood and Las Vegas as well as video interviews at the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood where the first Oscar awards ceremony began. Marilyn Monroe's ghost haunts the halls in the famous hotel, but at the party we were invited to all the actresses seeking work with film producers were dressed as Sarah Palin with wigs, red dresses, toy wolves pinned to their collars, and toy rifles carried over their shoulders. Las Vegas nightclubs put on Sarah Palin contests. Winners won a trip to Washington D.C. to see Obama become President of the United States after George Bush left office. I captured all the fun with my video camera and wrote about the events at night until sun rise.
Sarah Palin visited Sedona, Arizona. McCain asked her to be Vice President. I went to Sedona to interview folks. By September 2008, Halloween costume shops sold Sarah Palin wigs, glasses, and red dresses. Soon Sarah Palin impersonators arrived with Tina Fey. Vegas clubs held Sarah Palin costume contests. Sarah Palin impersonators were in demand, I started filming, writing, and interviewing Palin doubles. U.S. soldiers from Iraq came back, dressed as Sarah, and called me. Fashion models wanted to be in books on Sarah Palin. Saturday and Sunday, Halloween weekend, October 31, 2008, I covered Sarah Palin events in Las Vegas and Hollywood, California.
The money is for the books.
In the future, I need to create the DVD with the dozens of video interviews collected while traveling to meet Sarah Palin impersonators. Maybe next arrange the hundreds of photographs into a book, but publishing the chapters for 4 Sarah Palin books is the most expensive priority I need funding for to finish this project.
