What is the difference between a celebrity impersonator, celebrity lookalike and a tribute artist?
A celebrity lookalike, by a fluke of genetics, happens to look like someone famous. Rarely do they share the same talents and abilities as the actual celeb so don't expect a dead ringer for Tiger Woods to win any golf tournaments or a Justin Timberlake clone to actually sing and dance.
A celebrity impersonator is a talented singer, dancer and/or actor who, through makeup, wigs, costume and of course voice and body language will effect the look and sound of the celeb and recreate his/her act.
A tribute artist/tribute act is much like an impersonator but their focus is more on recreating the sound, with less emphasis on the look.
It's very rare indeed that you find a genetic lookalike who can also perform like the original (although there are couple -- my LA "Bono" and PA "Reba McIntyre" come to mind.)
For entertainment purposes, you're usually better with an impersonator or tribute act.

Price Structure - (*** System)
(Use this list to determine if a performer is within your general
price range. This guide appears again on each category page,
and the stars appear with the performers' photos)
*=these performers are sometimes available in NYC for
short shows, week days only, in addition to their usual full
hour-long performances. Prices for a 15 minute week day appearance
range from $250-$400. Full shows (one hour) evenings and weekends,
start at $500, more if shleppage is involved.
***=these performers live outside the NYC area. If you need them in the NY metro area,
traveling prices apply, and usually range from $1500-2500, depending upon the
performer. Additionally, client pays all travel, accommodations and meals.
If you need them on their home turf, local rates (** above) generally apply.
****=These performers are in high demand (lucky devils) and
their prices reflect that. Rates range from about $3000-$15000, even locally.
Please Note: Celebrity Impersonators do not do inexpensive,
quickie singing telegrams! If you are looking for an act
in the $100-250 range, please see our Telegrams section.
