Bush Impersonator, Ex-Gov Play Dueling Guitars

Author, comedian, impersonator John Morgan, a finalist on ABC Television’s The Next Best Thing  who is best known as “The Definitive President George W. Bush,” recently shared the stage with former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee when he performed before more than 1,200 people in Nashville at the inaugural Leadership Convention of Trail Life USA, a youth character development organization.

In addition to sharing his music and playing the guitar with Governor Huckabee, Morgan kept the audience entertained with his spot-on impersonation of the 43rd U.S. President.

 “John Morgan was totally off the chain,” said John Stemberger, CEO of Trail Life USA. “I laughed so hard I could hardly breathe. It was truly one of the funnest–and funniest–pieces of comedy I have ever heard. He had the large crowd roaring and many of the conference attendees said it was the single best dinner event they had ever been to. John masterfully combines, comedy, impersonation, music and a meaningful message or two to make this a unique entertainment act that has no equal.”

Morgan currently is promoting his upcoming release, War On Fear. The book discusses Morgan’s personal struggle with fear that he says prevented him from achieving all the dreams God had placed on his heart. “Once I declared war on fear, it changed the way I lived and has provided me with victory and peace,” he says.

Though the book details his own story, Morgan has observed that every man and woman struggles with fear. His hope is that his new book will enable people to move forward toward their God-given dreams and not be bullied by unseen forces.

War On Fear follows the 2008 publication of My Life As A Bush…and My Heart for Imitating Jesus, co-written by Morgan and Vince Wilcox with a forward by Governor Huckabee.

With a small cadre of “Secret Service” agents stationed around him, Morgan nods his head and greets the crowd with the President’s trademark Texas drawl. Morgan’s show combines his hilarious but respectful impression of President Bush with a few famous George W. faux pas, blended with a mix of parody songs and finishes up with an inspiring message about hope and determination. He elicits heartfelt laughter from both sides of the political aisle.
