REPLAY: André-Philippe Gagnon at the News Café

  • Print

André Philippe Gagnon didn’t get through all of the more than 400 voices in his repertoire, but he put a serious dent in it.

The Quebec-born comedian and singing impressionist stopped by the Winnipeg Free Press News Café in advance of a sold-out show tonight at the McPhillips Station Casino.

Through the wonder that is his vocal box, Michael Jackson, Bruce Springsteen, Mick Jagger, Tina Turner, Barry White, Axl Rose, Peter Gabriel, Gordon Lightfoot, Burton Cummings, Kenny Rogers and even Jean Chrétien made an appearance.

Gagnon said he does singing impressions because his French accent disappears in song.

He said he got his start doing impersonations as a kid watching cartoons. Tweety Bird was his first but he has retired that one, he said.
