Kiwi off to LA after being selected as one of the top 10 impersonators of Donald Trump in the world

A New Zealander has been picked as one of the world’s top 10 Trump impersonators by US comedy chain Laugh Factory.

Alexander Sparrow will travel to LA as a finalist in a competition to find the best Trump impersonator in the world.

The winner will host an online show for Laugh Factory Magazine called Real News/Fake News, and headline at Laugh Factory clubs all over the US.

Sparrow is the contestant travelling from the furthest away, joining contestants from Dubai, Great Britain, Canada, Iran and South Korea.

Sparrow performed as Trump in his comedy show The President in Wellington and Auckland last year, and is putting it on one last time to raise funds for the trip at Wellington’s Cavern Club on April 13.

The finals will be held on Wednesday April 26.
