Lemmy, Freddie Mercury and Barry Gibb cover The Chi-Lites


 
I know, I know, this is incredibly silly but it cracks me up.

British comedian Stevie Riks does wickedly funny impressions of rock stars that are often as cruel (though affectionate) as they are funny. In this particular video, Riks portrays Barry Gibb, Freddie Mercury and Lemmy as they perform The Chi-Lites’ classic “Have You Seen Her.’

British comic Stevie Riks cracks me up. He’s funny as hell and smart as a pistol when it comes to paying homage and satirizing his rock and roll heroes. Check out his website. You’ll find some real comic gems there.

In this video, Riks creates an imagined collaboration between David Bowie and Elvis Presley on “Golden Years.”

Riks does spot-on impressions and his Bowie is almost perfect. “Golden Years” would have been a great choice for Elvis to cover, no shit.

Stevie Riks is a British comedian who does remarkable impressions/parodies of pop stars that are affectionate, smart and often brutally funny. His take on Bryan Ferry is so good it’s scary.

In this video, Riks does Ferry doing nursery rhymes while Freddie Mercury adds a bit of color.

 
Riks as Ray Davies is some brilliant silliness. He really nails the subtleties of Ray’s voice and that is no easy task. This had me laughing to the point of tears. Maybe it’s the face.

 
Stevie has almost 400 videos uploaded to his Youtube channel. It’s all him doing his impressions and they run the gamut from the ridiculous to the sublime. A few cut to the bone. Check them out here. He does a killer Lemmy.
 
Riks does Lemmy after the jump…

Bryan Ferry sings the theme song from ‘The Beverly Hillbillies’

His name is Stevie Riks. He’s a comedian from England and he’s very funny. This impression of Bryan Ferry doing a medley of the theme from The Beverly Hillbillies, Benny Hill’s ‘Ernie’, ‘Pop Musik’, The Wurzels’ ‘I Am A Cider Drinker’ and ‘Two Little Boys’ by Rolf Harris is absolutely inspired.

Riks has a Youtube channel where he does spot on impressions of dozens of rock and rollers and some of them are gutbustingly funny. Check em out here.
