When Standup Meets Karaoke

by

Back in 1983, Finis Henderson released an album on Motown. It tanked. Taking a cue from Richard Pryor, for whom he opened at the time, Henderson made a career change. These days he's a stand-up comedian. But he hasn't given up music completely. His act features musical impressions of Mick Jagger, Ricky Martin, and Frank Sinatra. "I don't change the lyrics to make them funny," he says. "I'm a pure impressionist." Henderson's ultimate goal is to replace rival Danny Gans in Vegas. "He needs to retire," says Henderson, laughing.
