Only one Jackie Gleason impersonator has been Hailed by the famous June Taylor (Gleason's June Taylor Dancers) as "Just like Jackie" and approved by the Gleason estate. Only one has been chosen by Burt Reynolds for a TV pilot about the famous cars used in Smokey and the Bandit. Only one was recently cast as Jackie Gleason in a developing Broadway musical adaptation of The Honeymooners. If that weren't enough, only one has recreated The Jackie Gleason show live on the very stage in Miami where it was originally produced.
If you're looking for a true lifelong entertainer whose mastery of Gleason's performances is unparalleled, you've come to the right place and Michael Walters is your man!
I had the extreme pleasure of having Mr. Walters, or Mr. Gleason that is, at my Wife's and my anniversary party this year. The Honeymooners was our favorite show and I would swear Ralph Kramden was standing right there talking to me when Michael performed! We laughed so hard my wife had tears streaming down her face. Not only was he a spectacular performer, he was an expert on all things GLEASON! All I can say is THANK YOU for bringing back such wonderful memories for me and my wife.
Response from Michael L. Walters is Jackie Gleason:
So glad we could have some fun, pal.
