The Edwards Twins

Identical twins Eddie and Anthony Edwards claim to have mastered over 100 celebrity impersonations between them. Eddie is slimmer with a higher pitched voice, so he channels the ladies (Barbra Streisand, Cher) and Anthony does the men (Elton John, Billy Joel). The brothers, whose repertoire includes Neil Diamond, Tina Turner, and even Kermit the Frog, change the show’s celebrity lineup every few weeks. Eddie kills as Cher: S/he emerges with a wild mane of jet black hair and a Brazilian-cut leotard exposing the ass cheeks. Eddie looked like Cher in drag—which works great because really, that’s what the Cher looks like, too. Sonny (Anthony) even comes back from the grave to do his part during a spot-on rendition of “I Got You Babe.” ERIKA HOBART
