The Rich Little Show
Profile Bio Text
Richard Caruthers "Rich" Little (born November 26, 1938 in Ottawa, Ontario) is a Canadian impressionist and voice actor. Little has long been known as a top impersonator of famous people throughout the world, which has earned him the nickname "The Man of a Thousand Voices," a name which notable voice actor Mel Blanc once held.
Little was a frequent guest on variety and talk shows. He cracked up Johnny Carson by capturing the Tonight Show host`s voice and many on-stage mannerisms perfectly (he later played Carson in the HBO TV-movie The Late Shift). One of his best known impressions is of U.S. President Richard Nixon. During the 1970s, Little made many television appearances portraying Nixon. He was a regular guest on Dean Martin`s Celebrity Roasts in the 1970s and was also a semi-regular on the Emmy-winning ABC-TV variety series The Julie Andrews Hour in 1972-1973. This particular series proved to be a wonderful showcase for Little`s talents as an impressionist. In fact, because of his uncanny yet brilliant imitation of Jack Benny, the legendary comedian sent Little an 18-carat gold money clip containing this message: "With Bob Hope doing my walk and you doing my voice, I can be a star and do nothing." He was named "Comedy Star of the Year" by the American Guild of Variety Artists in 1974. The Rich Little Show (1976) and The New You Asked for It (1981) were attempts to present Little in his own person, away from his gallery of characterizations. Little has starred in various HBO specials including the 1978 one-man show, Rich Little`s Christmas Carol. He has also appeared in several movies and released nine albums.
Little was married to Jeanne Worden from 1971 until their divorce in 1989. The couple have a daughter, Bria. He married Jeannette Markey in 1994; they divorced in 1997. He married his current wife, Marie Marotta, in 2003. Although Little is a Canadian citizen, he lives in Las Vegas, where he often performs.
