Richard has garnered awards and audience and critical acclaim from coast to coast as well as Canada and Greece!
Back Stage said, "Skipper sparkles with the glow of Channing's charisma, but the extra shine you see onstage is a product of a diamond-like brilliance that is his alone."
Audiences adore RICHARD SKIPPER AS CAROL CHANNING:
"Wow! You did a great job for us at the arts gala last week. Everyone was so happy with results of the weekend and your show was the ultimate highlight.
Working with you was a pleasure and your high degree of
professionalism made for a superb affair. Keep up the good work and we look forward to working with you again on another project."
"Richard Skipper's Carol Channing has to be seen to be believed. He not only is so beautiful, but he has "all of her" down so pat, if you saw them together the only way to know he wasn't her, is Miss Channing isolder!
What a talent! I am so anxious to bring him/her to Florida! I will
be proud to be able to represent Richard at some point."
"Richard is a consummate performer who not only sounds like Carol Channing but gives you the tone both in looks and movements. This is an act you should not miss. He performed for us at the Fairmont Hotel at a lavish 100th Birthday party of about 300 guests, many of which are very conservative, and brought the house down. A standing ovation."
"I didn't expect the show to be so complete, so exciting, so gracious. It was indeed a pleasure."
"You really do feel as if you have had an evening with the real Miss Carol."
"You are an absolutely amazing performer! During the past year you have performed at two events that I have been involved with and you have been wonderful. At the most recent event, the crowd responded to your performance in such a heartfelt manner, even calling you back out to say thank you! I look forward to seeing your show again!"
"You were fabulous as Carol Channing. Your sense of timing, grace and humor involving your audience were flawless. My only regret was that the performance ended too soon."
