The Edwards Twins -- and their dead on impressions of Elton John, Neil Diamond, Billy Joel, Ray Charles, Cher, Andrea Bocelli, Stevie Wonder, Rod Stewart, Pavarotti, Bette Midler, Tom Jones, Barbra Streisand, Elvis, Roy Orbison, Tina Turner just to name a few - have a fan base that just loves them to pieces.
"Striking look-alikes ...
"Flawless vocals & visuals,
The Edwards Twins in many ways
are better than watching the real thing."
"The Edwards Twins are amazing!
This is a must see show!"
Identical twins Anthony Edwards and Eddie Edwards were born in 1965 and grew up in Burbank, California. Both boys were fascinated with celebrities at a very early age. Living near the famous NBC TV Studios in Burbank, they would sneak in and watch the various shows being taped. At home, the brothers would then play together, mimicking the stars and memorizing the skits from "The Sonny and Cher Show," "The Carol Burnett Show" and "Laugh-In".
After going to CalArts to receive a degree in Music (with a focus on voice and piano), Anthony moved to San Diego to attend and graduate from the San Diego Police Academy. However, rather than pursue law enforcement, Anthony returned to his roots of entertaining by joining forces with Eddie, after Carol Burnett suggested that they put together a show based on a pair of identical twins that look and sound like many different super stars.
Prior to working with Anthony, Eddie's first celebrity impersonation was that of Lily Tomlin's alter-ego "Ernestine the Operator." One Halloween at the nightclub "La Cage aux Folles," he dressed up as a woman and was asked that night by an employee, if he had ever thought about impersonating Barbra Streisand. Shortly thereafter, Eddie began seriously studying the art of makeup application and other tricks of the trade in order to help him create the illusion of turning into a spectacular female. Eddie auditioned and was hired by the world-famous "La Cage aux Folles" travelling the globe impersonating the likes of Barbra Streisand and Bette Midler.
After 10 years of performing together all over the world, The Edwards Twins have developed their show into one of the most fascinating acts in show business. Anthony has mastered more than 75 primarily male characters including Neil Diamond, Billy Joel, Elton John, Rod Stewart, Tom Jones, Johnny Mathis, Ray Charles, and Engelbert Humperdinck among many others. Eddie's voice is higher-pitched than Anthony's, so he usually plays the females, including Barbra Streisand, Cher, and Bette Midler.
