Palin's staff took one look at Patsy & escorted her backstage to play a joke on Sarah at a huge rally. Sarah came through the curtain and exclaimed, "Oh My Gosh! It's like looking in a mirror!" After finding out they shared the same University degree, same 1st job (TV anchor), same middle name, and both had children with Down Syndrome, Sarah mused, "Wow! We DO have a lot in common!" Truly great impersonators have more than just “the look,” they also have the uncanny ability to embody the heart and soul of the person they are imitating. That’s what makes Patsy Gilbert so spectacular in her presentation of political luminary Sarah Palin. Make sure YOUR audience gets more than just "the look".
We hired "Sarah", aka Patsy, as a birthday surprise for a good friend in South Beach. Boy did she deliver! She took a few background tidbits on our friend which I had provided beforehand and crafted a great, fun and light roasting! Everyone was in stitches.
Response from Patsy Gilbert as Sarah Palin:
Thanks to Sue and the gang for providing such fun fuel for the roasting fire! The hotel "secret service" had as much fun as the guests! My favorite gigs are when I truly feel I have made true friends! Thanks for the memories! AND I MEAN IT! YOU BETCHA!
Patsy Gilbert is "THE" ringer for Sarah Palin. The look right off the bat takes your breath - her speech patterns, mannerisms, personality, and character are all combined into the person herself. I was MAJORLY impressed (and that doesn't happen often!) Congratulations on a wonderful talent and gift! Jimmy Mac
I have seen impersonators before and she takes the cake. She was spot on and funny. Very entertaining, she works the crowd excellently!
Patsy put on an incredible event from the University of Florida student community. Along with her good friend, Jennifer "Nancy Pelosi" Ramsey, Patsy created a hilarious political speech and debate specifically tailored to our market. As a person, she is incredible nice, and a joy to work with. I would highly recommend her for your next event. Point blank, SHE IS AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!
As the creator of Sarah Palin's Mooseburger Helper, we were in need for a spokesperson to represent and promote the product. Upon meeting Patsy Gilbert, it was clear she fit the bill. She's smart, witty, easy to work with, and went the extra mile for us in the creation of a 30-second commercial which has gone viral on YouTube. Patsy is the next best thing to having Sarah in the house! You won't be disappointed.
Patsy appeared in several of our videos, in character as our "Sarah Palin". The event was an oil and gas trade show, and we tapped several hours of interviews, hosted by Patsy. This was no small feat, she had to host interviews with high ranking executives, engineers, geologists and wild caters. She also had to meet and greet a willing public and she had to do it representing the policies and mannerisms of Sarah Palin.
Patsy showed that she is a true professional, she quickly internalized the "script" adlibbed the Palin responses and showed that she was fast on her feet and fearless. Everyone who participated in the program had a great time, numerous photos were taken with our "Sarah Palin" and the media wrote several stories about the event.
If you are looking for someone who truly embodies the mannerisms, the look and the attitude of Sarah Palin I would highly recommend Patsy Gilbert.
Patsy, thanks for going the extra mile.
I had the privilege of playing the role of secret service agent for Sarah/Patsy at a Law School Banquet in Lynchburg, VA. She did a phenomenal job of interacting with the audience and shared a great message with them. As I was mingling with the audience members after, they shared with me that they had a great time and sometimes forgot that she was actually an impersonator. Not only did she do a great job with the audience, but she spent time getting to know me as well as the others that helped put this event together. She is fun as both Sarah and Patsy and added so much to this event!
Sarah, I mean Patsy, was a great addition to our corporate event during SHOT convention. She was professional and did not falter on character once. The fans loved seeing "Sarah" and you can watch her video at OutdoorChannel.com and search for GMA 2008.
Patsy Gilbert and I did an event together, and she was brilliant, funny, and fabulous as Sarah Palin. She had the audience in the palm of her hand with her dynamite impersonation, hilarious act, and warmth and energy. However you feel about the real Sarah Palin, you will LOVE Patsy's Palin.
Our event was a dinner party for our Florida lobby team and Patsy did an outstanding job not only in fooling some of our team into believing we had brought in Sarah Palin for the event but also in entertaining us the entire night. Patsy, was extremely professional and did a great job preparing for the event by learning the names and some personal information about several of the key attendees which really helped to make the event extra special. We plan to have "Sarah" back for a second showing sometime soon.
Patsy has a life story similar to Sarah Palin including having been a sportscaster and the Mom of a Down's Syndrome baby. You can not fake that. She was totally convincing and was spot on with her comments and jokes. I give her a 12 out of ten! Six stars. Hire her you will not be disappointed.
Patsy is absolutely phenomenal as Sarah Palin! Her voice, her style, everything is perfect! I have enjoyed her impersonation so much that I have hired her several times since the first event and each time receive many compliments on her performance. Irregardless of you politics, Patsy will have your guests in stitches with her comic styles. I wouldn't hesitate to hire Patsy again or to recommend her!
Patsy was spot on with her impersonation of Palin. She not only is the best Palin look-alike I've seen yet, she also is able to capture the nuances of Sarah Palin down to the voice inflection and timbre; pacing of speech, etc. And she has such a Palin-esque sense of humor, as well. If you're looking for an impersonator of Sarah Palin, Patsy is your girl! Plus, she is so fun and charming in person as Patsy, too. Great to work with.

What to Expect
CLIENTS MAY NOW CHOOSE TO HAVE SARAH WINK ALONG WITH THE BOTOX BLINKER, NANCY PELOSI, AS THEY PERFORM THE WINK&BLINK TOUR... DEBATING THE NATIONS HOTTEST ISSUES WITH GUNS AND GAVELS!
Like the celebrated vice-presidential candidate, both were pageant queens and athletic team captains. Like Sarah,Patsy cut her teeth in broadcast journalism—developing a homespun honesty on both sides of the camera. They are both runners and have gun-totin' First-Dude types who love to hunt and fish. While Palin relished being a Hockey Mom, Gilbert loved her real-life role as Soccer Mom. Even more remarkably, like Sarah, Patsy and her husband were blessed with a loving Down Syndrome child.
When Governor Palin burst onto the national stage as John McCain’s running mate, Patsy saw a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. A consummate professional, Gilbert quickly developed comedic material while perfecting Palin’s accent and mannerisms. She and long-time family friend and President George W. Bush impersonator, John Morgan, were a smash at September’s “Sunburst Celebrity Impersonator’s Convention” in Orlando, FL. Just a few days later, they posed for photos with thousands of enthusiastic fans at October’s Presidential Debate ‘08 Block Party at Belmont University in Nashville, TN, just yards away from where the actual candidates sparred.
Gilbert’s on-camera credits include work for Kentucky Fried Chicken and Universal Studios as well as news anchor experience for KSLA-TV (Shreveport, LA), KRCG-TV (Jefferson City, MO), KOMU-TV and KBIA-TV (Columbia, MO). Patsy’s voice-over talents can be heard on spots for Universal Studios, Pepsi, Sheraton Hotels, and Sears. Her producer clients include Pepsi’s Daytona 24 Challenge, General Mills/Red Lobster, Wet ‘n Wild, and Rooms to Go.
Patsy grew up in St. Louis, Missouri and holds to her Midwestern values. She's an active member of her church and knows that when it comes to family, you spell love “t-i-m-e.” Patsy and her husband, Dave, now make their home in Orlando, FL, along with their two sons, Devon and Dylan, and one daughter, Dallas Elizabeth.
“The most rewarding part of impersonating Sarah,” says Patsy “is embracing her courage, convictions, and moral compass. Now that I’m impersonating Sarah, I have an excuse for being feisty and unapologetically stubborn when standing up for what I believe.“
With her journalism and production background, Patsy is uniquely qualified to entertain and amuse as "The Impalinator!"
