Comedian Aries Spears will be here in about 10 minutes to take your questions! Send them in now!
What do you feel is your best impression?
Jay Z is my best impression. But the really fun ones to do are Manny Pacquiao and Big E.
Aries, everyone always talks about how show business is tough to get into, especially stand up. How hard was it for you to break in?
Stand up is easy, if you're funny. If you're not funny, it's hard to break into. But show business is a lot tougher, I'm still trying to crack that nut.
were your parents funny? How did you develop your sense of humor when you were younger?
Parents were definitely both funny. We watched a ton of movies all of the time. I soaked up anything funny.
Who has reacted the best after seeing your impersonation?
He always says "hey hit that Jay Z for me nephew."
What's next for you? Any upcoming projects? Movies? Shows?
Hopefully some movies, but I have to wait for Kevin Hart to cool down.
Tee Pee! You're militant, but I love you.....how fun was making that movie? You didn't get a lot of camera time, but when you did, you were hysterical.
I'm still waiting for them to show me the money.
Did you start doing impressions to make your act stand out from all of the other stand ups or was it something that you wanted to try to do?
I was a big fan of Eddie Murphy on SNL, so he inspired me to do it.
Best skit you ever did on MADTV?
Anything and everything with Will and Debra.
What was your first impression that you worked on?
Wow....my first impression was of the jazz singer Louis Armstrong, and it went well.
Were you born in Chicago? How come I always see you sporting a Yankees cap?
Was born in Chicago, left immediately after birth and went to New York. Did you know Michael Jordan is really from Brooklyn, but claims North Carolina?
What's the one You Tube video that fans mention the most to you?
It's probably the rap collaboration where I do Snoop and DMX rapping together. Which you can find on AriesSpears23.com
Have you ever been heckled on stage? How did you handle it?
Yes I have. You have to kick them immediately.
Do you have any plans to do more movies or anything like that or would you prefer to stay in stand up or doing comedy shows?
I'd love to do movies, but Hollywood is a high school game, and I haven't got a chance to sit at the cool kids table yet.
Ever think of doing one on Aaron Rodgers?
Not yet, but I got my eyes open.
any you're working on?
Manny Pacquiao, Method Man and the Notorious B.I.G.
hwat do you look for?
I'm just a perfectionist. I'm really into detail. I like to try to get it down to the every nuance, every gesture, no matter how small it is.
Hi are the celtics going to beat Atlanta on thursday
The Celtics will make me nervous if they play the Heat.
But if I'm around a bunch of white people, shuffleboard. You can't feed into the stereotype.
best place to watch a game?
All of the basketball games I've ever seen have been in L.A., even for all-star weekend. I've been to Vegas for a few major fights. I would have love to have caught a Bulls game when Jordan was playing, which I never did. I'm hoping to catch a Heat game in Miami.
I'm not funny, Mom, Dad and Sis aren't funny, my second cousin, Arnie, is mildly clever. Should I become a Comedian?
Who is better the Thunder or Heat
Ooooohhh...On paper, the Thunder. If we go by stats. But in a 7 game series, the Heat. If LeBron is LeBron, they'll win it all. They would have won it all last year if LeBron was LeBron.
I bet I could beat you in shuffleboard
Are you white?
If you're black, you don't stand a chance, I've been on more cruiseships than you.
anyone you can't imitate?
I would love to be able to imitate Barack Obama.
one that you've worked on but can't get?
Barack Obama. It sucks to finally have a black man as the most powerful man in America and I can't get his voice.
what do you work on to get a voice down?
First, because I have a doctor's order to take my medicinal marijuana, I do that then I just practice.
Get out of your own way.
If there are any Bostonians out there, make sure you see me at the Wilbur Theater this Friday at 7:30 p.m. ET. Follow me: @AriesSpears on Twitter.
