Jay Pharoah

When: Sun., Jan. 21, 7 p.m. 2018

“Saturday Night Live” alum Jay Pharoah is probably most famous for his spot-on impression of president Barack Obama — or maybe his take on rapper Jay-Z. Then again, he’s also memorably skewered Kanye West, Eddie Murphy and Will Smith, among others. But Pharoah doesn’t just mimic celebrity voices. The comedian fully embodies every famous person he imitates down to minor mannerisms and hand gestures. Since leaving the late-night NBC sketch show in 2016, he landed the lead role in the Showtime original series “White Famous,” a comedy loosely based on the life of actor Jamie Foxx. Pharoah performs Friday through Sunday, January 19 through 21, at the Vermont Comedy Club in Burlington.
