He moves smoothly in and out of characters – including an Italian trying to tip his way to the front of a funeral line – and some lively impressions. His excellent use of his voice and his body combined with well-written material make his stage personalities freshly funny and a far cry from the stale stereotypes employed by many stand-ups.
