About Rick Michel

Rick has been a master impressionist for over thirty years. Michel has considered himself lucky to have shared the stage with many successful celebrities as Rich Little, Mickey Rooney, John Byner and Sherman Hemsley. Some of the esteemed guests who have enjoyed Michel's impersonations include Frank Sinatra, President Gerald Ford, Tony Curtis and Steve Allen.

A memorable highlight of Michel's career came when he performed his impression of Bob Hope for the comedic icon himself, at the Bob Hope Celebrity Golf Classic in Palm Springs. Other career highlights included appearances in an episode of "Baywatch", America's Funniest People" and the "Larry King Show".

Performing in Las Vegas since 1981, Michel has been up one end of the Strip to the other. From the Stratosphere Hotel to the Tropicana Hotel, Michel has enjoyed Las Vegas being home as well as his work place.

Involved in several charity events including the Salvation Army Christmas Toys for Tots, Fox 5 "Take 5 for Kids" Suitcase Drive, Help Them Walk Again Foundation and Make a Difference Day, Michel always seems to find time to give back to the community.
