Much like his predecessor, Joe Biden has been notoriously difficult to impersonate during the first months of his presidency.
While Donald Trump was hard to caricature due to his distinctive speech and cartoonish style, it’s been hard for comedians and impersonators to work out exactly what to focus on with Biden’s folksy persona.
Saturday Night Live (SNL) has already tried out five different Biden impersonators - from Jason Sudeikis to Jim Carrey - and no-one has quite hit the mark.
No-one that is until comedy legend and former SNL cast-member Dana Carvey, who offered up his impressive take on the president for the Late Show’s Stephen Colbert last night.
Carvey explained that he decided to focus his impression on Biden’s “gentle father” persona that he often uses at town hall events and in major addresses, capturing his sometimes incoherent stream of consciousness style of speech.
