George W. Bush impression

Adomian's impression is notable not only for poking fun at Bush's verbal miscues, but also for its satirical anti-Bush tone, distinguishing himself from more friendly Bush impersonators. He appears frequently on The Late Late Show as Bush, and has released several YouTube videos as Bush for a number of liberal organizations, including Working Assets, Laughing Liberally, Free Press and OpenLeft.

Late Late Show and other appearances

Adomian began appearing as President George W. Bush frequently on The Late Late Show after Craig Ferguson took over hosting the show in January 2005 and remains a current series regular. He has appeared as Bush on several other comedy programs, including MADtv, Mind of Mencia, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Short Circuitz, and Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay.

Live appearances

Adomian often makes live appearances around the country as Bush, particularly at left-wing and progressive political events like YearlyKos, Laughing Liberally and the National Conference for Media Reform. He performs in Los Angeles as Bush and other characters at standup comedy shows.

In 2008, he appeared with comedian Greg Giraldo at venues around the country as part of the Indecision '08 Tour produced by Comedy Central.

Voiceover

As a voiceover artist, Adomian has performed on The Onion Radio News, on Comedy Death-Ray Radio on Indie 103.1 as Huell Howser, Jesse Ventura and Gary Busey, as several recurring characters on the PBS cartoon series WordGirl, as President Bush on a few episodes of MADtv and as Jimmy Kimmel on Celebrity Deathmatch.

Viral videos

In addition to several Bush Blog episodes and two State of the Union videos as George W. Bush, Adomian has released other viral internet videos, including "Hillary's Downfall" where the subtitles to the film Downfall were changed to reflect Hillary Clinton's anger at her loss of the Democratic nomination. Other videos on YouTube include performances as Alan Moore, Brett Favre, Vincent Price, Orson Welles, Gary Busey, Lewis Black, wrestler Hacksaw Jim Duggan, George Zimmer from The Men's Wearhouse, the voice of a commercial parody for Omnibus Globes and a spokesman for a California tribal gaming ballot initiative.
