Proving that Television Can Be Useful
Craig Gass grew up in an entirely deaf household, which meant the only way he can learn to speak was by watching TV. But this unique upbringing had a bright side, it enhanced Craig's mimicry abilities to a legendary status. Now Craig uses his gift for the good of all mankind, by traveling the country as a stand-up comedian. Gass’ impressions span the entire celebrity spectrum and include rarely imitated characters like Gene Simmons, Tom Arnold, Owen Wilson and Sam Kinison. Along with comedy, Craig is also becoming quite the actor, appearing on Las Vegas, and as Miranda's glazed-doughnut loving boyfriend on Sex and the City.
FACTOID - Craig Gass took part in the A&E Roast of Gene Simmons.
