Infamous for his skewering of political figures, Little has charmed, amused, intrigued and gotten the best of politicians from here to his native Canada. He entertained at both of Reagan's presidential inaugurations and got to know the Reagan family very well during that time. President Reagan used to tell Little, "You do me better than I do."
Appearances on TV variety shows starring Ed Sullivan, Jackie Gleason, Glen Campbell and Dean Martin followed, as well as on series such as Laugh-In, The John Davidson Summer Show and The Julie Andrews Show. Little also had his own variety show in the 70s and was the star of the TV show KopyKats. Little was a guest host early on for The Tonight Show, hosting 12 times. He quickly became a household name sitting in one of the Hollywood Squares and went on to do the Muppet Show.
Named "Comedy Star of the Year" by the American Guild of Variety Artists, Little was the perpetrator of nine comedy albums and three HBO comedy specials, as well as the Emmy-award winning specials "Rich Little's Christmas Carol" with "W.C. Fields" as Scrooge, "Humphrey Bogart" as one of the ghosts and "Paul Lynde" as Bob Cratchit.
A professed classic movie buff, he's particularly fond of doing Alan Ladd (his childhood hero), Gary Cooper and Clark Gable, but Little has also latched on to Baby Boomer-friendly characters, such as Edith Bunker, Kermit the Frog, Robin Leach and Dr. Ruth Westheimer, to name a few. Some of his favorite current impressions are of stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Dr. Phil, Jack Nicholson and Clint Eastwood. "They're easy to do," he says. "They are larger than life."
