About Willy Wonka Impersonator

The greatest Willy Wonka impersonator in the United States. Available for parties, conventions, publicity events. Approved by Johnny Depp himself, Tim Burton gave an additional approval. Both of whom are approved through Warner Brothers, Nestle/ Wonka, & The Dahl estate. Offeres competitive rates. Reliable, professional and perfect for your Hollywood, Candy, Wonka themed party or event.


Richie stole the show and drove a record amount of people to our booth at a convention of over 14,000 people. He impressed everyone with his witty comebacks and hilarious conversations with guests. He plays Wonka like nobody I have ever seen before. I would more than love to work with him again in the future. He engaged with visitors, maintained his professionalism and stayed in character the entire time. Go for it, you will be impressed.

By Mike K. on February 5, 2013

I hired "Willy Wonka" for my kids birthday party and this guy was great. He interacted very well with both the adults and the kids and had funny material for any question/comment. He was also kind enough to stay for pictures with all the kids that wanted a photo. I hope to hire him again soon!
