What would it sound like if Shakespeare quotes were delivered by such actors as Jack Nicholson, Barack Obama, Jack Nicholson, Paul Giamatti, Johnny Carton, Robert DeNero, Droopy Dog, Ricky Gervais and Ron Howard? All of this from the mouth of impressionist guru Jim Meskiman, the voice of JibJab. Check him on YouTube. As I’ve said, he … Continue reading “Celebrities Do Shakespeare”

“Just Give Me a Damned Cigarette” : JibJab Goes Puppets for Year-End-Review

One of the things that gets me through the holidays is the anticipation and enjoyment of JibJab’s annual year-end song parody. When Twitter rumors about CNN’s announcing Morgan Freeman’s death this week, I called JibJab’s Voice Jim Meskimen (website/on YouTube) to see if he’d do his classic Freeman impersonation. He did in this “Morgan Freeman … Continue reading ““Just Give Me a Damned Cigarette” : JibJab Goes Puppets for Year-End-Review”

Finally Something Unboring on the Internet

Maybe 8 years ago I stumbled onto a website where there was a cartoon contest. Even better, it was managed by the voice behind Jibjab cartoons. There was some heavy competition but I believe I once won “runner’s up.” Jim Meskimen is back with his celebrated cartoon contests, and now on YouTube (that online-video sharing … Continue reading “Finally Something Unboring on the Internet”

Meet Evan Spiridellis of Jibjab Media (Via Knestor, the Smart Borat)

Knestor, the smart-man’s Borat, is the awkwardly intelligent alter ego of Jim Meskimen. Jim is that voice you’ve heard as just about every political figure on JibJab’s celebrated animations, and he’s been the subject of countless blog posts here.
