By Eva Araújo (Web correspondent)
Bob Monkhouse was a comedian who had from 1983 to 1986 a TV show he hosted and in which he interviewed many comedians.
The show had 3 seasons and in one episode of it's last season in 1986, one of the guests was Jim Carrey. He showed up with cream colors paints and a light pink shirt with a clock and leafs pattern.
At that time Jim worked as a comedian, consisted of impersonations of character of people and right in the beginning of this clip we see Jim Carrey impersonating Kermit The Frog.
Bob then tells Jim he would love to know how to do it and Jim tells him he will teach him: "Everyone can do an impression." Jim says, he then asks Bob to stand up and when he asks why, Jim simply replies: "You will find soon enough!", making the audience laugh. "Welcome to the Elvis school of impersonation!", he says again.
Then Jim starts instruction Bob on how to stand to impersonate Elvis and also his upper lip. Then will the help of the band playing, Jim get behind Bob, holding his hands and start singing like Elvis and moving Bog arms, creating and impersonation of Elvis.
