About Rich Little
Canadian-American impressionist and voice actor Rich Little has an estimated net worth of $5 million. He was born on November 26, 1938 in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. During his early teens, he performed a partnership with Geoff Scott, another budding impressionist, who later became a politician. They concentrated on reproducing the voices of Canadian politicians like then-Prime Minister John Diefenbaker and Ottawa mayor Charlotte Whitton. At the age of 17, they were performing professionally in night clubs.
Little started appearing in theater productions during the late 50s and earned his first acting award at the Eastern Ontario Drama Festival. He then worked as a disc jockey in the early 60s who also incorporated impersonations into his show.
In 1963, he was asked to audition for, and subsequently became a part of The Judy Garland Show. He has imitated a number of artists, including James Stewart, Johnny Carson, Don Rickles, Dean Martin, Truman Capote and George Burns. His performances made his a household name.
Rich Little went on to appear in a number of television shows and television specials such as Love on a Rooftop, That Girl, The Tonight Show, Santa Barbara, The Julie Andrews Hours, The ABC Comedy Hour and The Muppet Show. He played Johnny Carson in the HBO biography The Late Shift. He also did voice over work on several cartoons, like The Racoons on Ice and Futurama. He has also overdubbed David Niven and Gene Kelly when both actors were too sick to voice their own productions. He was nicknamed “The Man of a Thousand Voice” by voice actor Mel Blanc.
