Dana Carvey and Jimmy Fallon’s Micro Impression-off Was a Big Hit

You probably never wondered what it would sound like to sit at the Thanksgiving Day table with Tony Montana, but it shouldn’t surprise you that comedian Dana Carvey was the one to answer that unasked question, in a totally ridiculous but hilarious format he calls micro impressions.

We first saw this segment from Carvey’s Tonight Show visit at Entertainment Weekly, where he and host Jimmy Fallon did a series of short, quick impressions of celebrities in unusual or unlikely scenarios, like Liam Neeson working as a cashier at a grocery story, Donald Trump putting on ChapStick, or what it might be like if Sir Michael Caine was in kindergarten. While the stars impersonated here weren’t exactly the toughest to mimic, all of these were really good, with the only dud in the bunch being Carvey’s first impression of Fallon seeing a UFO. I mean, is it even possible to do an accurate Fallon impression without saying the word “great” six or seven times per minute?

Our favorite, though, was probably the most micro (microest?) of them all, and that was Sean Connery responding to whether or not he would like to vacation in Spain. What are the odds that exact scenario has actually happened to Sean Connery? 99%?

Oh, and do all impressionists have to do push-ups when they bomb one? That seems particularly harsh. No wonder they stuck with the easy ones.

Can you come up with an absurd micro impression premise for Carvey to try next? Tell us your best idea in the comments section below.
