Ryan Dempster, Derek Holland impersonate Will Ferrell impersonating Harry Caray

Aug 20, 2012, 11:33 AM EDT

I don’t think anyone has so thoroughly dominated a celebrity impression the way Will Ferrell has dominated the Harry Caray impression. The evidence: no one actually impersonates Harry Caray anymore. They all impersonate Ferrell doing Caray.  Like Ryan Dempster and Derek Holland did at the MLB Fan Cave recently:

Not bad for baseball players. But at some point Will Ferrell is gonna have to apologize for unleashing that on the public.

    At least they didn’t try to do Tina Fey’s Sarah Palin.

    I wish Ryan Dempster of the Texas Rangers would start impersonating Ryan Dempster of the Chicago Cubs.

      instead hes just impersonating the Chicago Cubs.

        Nope. he’s just returning to form. The fact that Dempster was doing so well with the Cubs this year was an aberration. Dude’s average ERA is a little over 4 isn’t it?

    Actually, Ferrell’s impersonation of Caray is so popular, because like Fey’s Palin, it’s spot on. Anyone who watched Caray the last several years on WGN can attest to this, the guy was just collecting a paycheck towards the end. Not prepared, slurred speech, as he was downing the spirits. It was hilarious seeing Caray try and pronounce any foreign-sounding name, regardless of the level of difficulty.

    Weak, only thing funny about Holland is that weak ass mustache.

    With regards to dominating a celebrity impression, I believe Vaughn Meader’s JFK is unparrelled, as his impersonation is has become inseparable from JFK.

    Sorry for the comedy-nerd sidetrack

      Thanks for the comedy-nerd sidetrack
      I was a kid when Vaughn Meader was doing this schtick, but you are absolutely correct.
