reggie brown obama impersonator

Though Reggie Brown’s Obama impersonation was initially met with laughter and applause at a recent Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans, it appeared that the event’s organizers were not so amused when his jokes turned to Republican Newt Gingrich and Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty.

Brown’s mic was allegedly turned off, and music was played as he was shown away from the podium.

But the Chicago comedian denies being cut short for anything having to do with his jokes, and insists that his performance came to an abrupt end merely for running longer then time permitted.

Fox Chicago reports:

Event organizers cut him off, turning off the mic and coming on stage to get him, but Brown denies that it was because he went too far.

Brown said he simply went over his time and organizers came up to let him know.

He said he had between 10 and 15 minutes for his performance, and with an introductory video they played for him, he was clocked at 17 minutes. According to Brown, other speakers at the event that went over their speaking time were also reminded to wrap up.

“Not every joke hits,” Brown said. “All-in-all I think it was a great performance, and I got a lot of great feedback.”
