The Singing Chameleon ... The Man of A Thousand Voices


Saturday, March 12, 2005 at 8:00 p.m.
Roy Thomson Hall

Toronto, ON, February 21, 2005 - André-Philippe Gagnon, "The Man of a Thousand Voices," brings his captivating mix of comedy and music, and arsenal of over 1000 impressions, to Roy Thomson Hall, Saturday, March 12, 2005 at 8:00 p.m. Juno Award-winning, world-class guitarist/songwriter Robert Michaels also appears as a special guest.

With his hilarious sketches of famous personalities, from Mick Jagger to Nat King Cole, and Fred Flintstone to Louis Armstrong, the incomparable André-Philippe Gagnon has mesmerized audiences in over 11 countries, in two languages, performing more than 3,500 shows, in front of over 5 million people.

Born in Quebec City, QC, André-Philippe Gagnon grew up spending a good deal of time on the hockey rinks and baseball diamonds. But he got an extra-special kick out of imitating celebrities to make his friends and family laugh. He found out very early on in life that his natural talent was something that others enjoyed listening to as much as he enjoyed exploring it.

After performing in talent shows and Festivals, he became one of the hottest performers in Canada, playing sold-out shows across the country. In the mid-1980s, he appeared at Montreal’s Just For Laughs festival and subsequently invited to appear on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, where 25 million viewers watched him perform We Are The World, doing all 18 famous voices on the famine-relief anthem. His career skyrocketed, and his rubber-band voicebox antics have won him huge ovations worldwide, breaking box office records with his phenomenal repertoire of pop music and humor.. He was named "1999 Best of the Best-Newcomer of the Year" by Gaming Today, and his name appeared on Los Angeles’ Wall of Fame along with those of top international stars.

With four best-selling albums-all of which hit gold or platinum status in Canada-Robert Michaels will release his much-awaited follow-up to Allegro (JUNO for Best Instrumental Album 2003) in Spring 2005, which promises to deliver exciting new songs and special guests.

Co-presented with Jeff Parry Promotions.
