Robin Williams Impersonator: Jamie Costa ‘Never Had A Friend Like Him’ [Video]

A Robin Williams impersonator posted a video on YouTube that has gone viral — and it’s totally worth the watch. According to Entertainment Weekly, Jamie Costa completely nails 20 impressions of the late comedian, getting his voice and his facial expressions to match almost perfectly. He titled the video “Never had a friend like him,” which, of course, is a tribute to William’s role as the Genie in Aladdin.

“Not only does Costa bear an eerily close resemblance to the late comic, but he also has Williams’ vocal tone down so perfectly that watching him is almost like watching Williams’ younger self goofing around onscreen.”

As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Costa said that he wanted to make the video as a way to honor Williams, and to thank him for “igniting his passion.”

The Robin Williams impersonator has well over 1.3 million views on his video so far. According to Time, Costa impersonated some of Williams’ most memorable movie characters including Mork from Mork & Mindy, the Genie from Aladdin, and Mrs. Doubtfire.
