The best Joker impression by a Heath Ledger fan is something I never thought I would hear someone say about me. I have always loved voice impressions since I was a kid. It amazed me how someone could sound, and even look like, someone else. Who doesn’t love a great voice impressionist? Being into photography, filmmaking and music, if a movie really grabs my attention, I can’t help but feel drawn towards it…it just pulls me in. The Dark Knight is one of those films.
The Dark Knight is one of those perfect films. The storyline, casting, acting and feel of the film was a perfect work of art. Heath Ledger was cast as the Joker, as you know. Heath Ledger is one of my favorite actors. The first film I saw him in was A Knight’s Tale. Check it out if you haven’t already. If you’ve already seen it, watch it again.
Heath Ledger died on 22 January 2008 from an accidental intoxication from prescription drugs. A few months before his death, Ledger had finished filming his performance as The Joker in The Dark Knight.
Many people try to perform Heath Ledger’s joker impression on YouTube. I enjoy watching them all. I never thought of doing the joker impression until a friend said I was pretty good. He’s an artist and a huge DC and Marvel comic fan. If Eric said I was good, maybe I was on to something.
Long story short, I watched the Dark Knight more and more, listened to Heath’s pitch and how he spoke, and tried to get closer to it. Most of the time I do a pretty good job if I do say so myself. It’s a lot of fun.
I started the YouTube channel, THE JOKER BOX to see how well it would go over, or flop. Subscribers of the channel love it and always want more, so I give it to them. If they love it and it helps to keep Heath’s memory alive, I’m good with that.
Here are a couple videos from the YouTube channel THE JOKER BOX. What do you think? If Hollywood is watching, yes, I would love to do voice over work, which I already have done for a handful of people.
