The best Joker impression by a Heath Ledger fan

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. I try to get to the movies as much as I can. Years ago it was not uncommon for me to be at the movies every weekend.

Well, The Dark Knight is one of those perfect films that I cannot helped but be drawn into. The storyline, casting, acting and feel of the film was just a perfect work of art. Heath Ledger was cast as the Joker, as many of you know. He did a spectacular job and won many awards for that role, which he worked so hard on. Heath Ledger is one of my favorite actors. The first film I saw him in was A Knight’s Tale. Outstanding movie and story. Check it out if you have not. If you’ve already seen it, watch it again. I saw it last weekend 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 do Heath Ledger’s joker impression on YouTube. A few are really good but most are not….but that’s cool….I enjoy watching them as well. I never thought of doing the joker impression until a friend of mine heard me and said I was pretty good. He’s an artist and a huge DC and Marvel comic fan. If Eric said I was good, well, I guess I was on to something. Anyway, long story short, I watched the movie 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 for me. I started a YouTube channel called 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.
