HOMETOWN- Melbourne, Florida
RESIDES IN- Manhattan New York

Best known for the many impressions he has brought to the show, Hammond has been acclaimed by television critics and viewers alike, for his uncanny accuracy and range. Hammond has portrayed politicians (Bill Clinton, Jesse Jackson and Trent Lott), media figures (Ted Koppel, Sam Donaldson, Bob Costas, Phil Donahue, and A&E "Biography" host Jack Perkins) and celebrities (Sean Connery, John Travolta, Jay Leno, Richard Dreyfus).

In April 1997, Hammond was applauded in the media for his dead-on impression of President Clinton during a surprise appearance with the President himself at an event before thousands of government officials and members of the Washington press corps, at the Radio-Television Correspondents Dinner.

Hammond began doing impressions as a child, but his pursuit of a career in performing only began after graduating from the University of Florida at Gainesville. After college, Hammond lived in New York for several years and appeared in off- and off-off-Broadway productions, in both dramatic and comedic roles. Later, he returned to Florida and honed his skills as an impressionist, performing on local and national radio programs.

For the last several years, Hammond has been performing stand-up comedy and impressions in New York and throughout the country. On film, he has lent his vocal talents to the recent animated version of "The King and I." On television, Hammond has appeared on NBC's "Late Night with Conan O'Brien," "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," "Late Show with David Letterman," MTV, Showtime, Comedy Central, VH-1 and A&E's "Comedy on the Road."
