An interview with Louis Ortiz by BBC was featured on the front page of BBC News throughout the evening, vaulting it to the #3 most watched video on the BBC News site, higher even than President Obama's oath of office, though it trails Beyonce's rendition of the National Anthem by one spot. Ortiz was also featured by BBC News on their Inauguration Timeline.

As the election returns began to trickle in last November, Louis Ortiz, a laid-off telephone man from the Bronx, bit his nails, squeezed his eyes shut and prayed like he’d never prayed before. But when he opened his eyes, all he saw on TV was a wave of Republican red sweeping up from Texas and into the Midwest. “It was too stressful,” said Ortiz. “I couldn’t deal. So I just went to bed.”

Politicos Comedy Brigade Executive Producer Dustin Gold Featured In Bloomberg Businessweek

Politicos Comedy Brigade Executive Producer Dustin Gold Featured In Bloomberg Businessweek
Dustin Gold is a presidential consultant who demands complete transparency. Perhaps it helps that he advises candidates who don’t actually hold elected office—they just impersonate those who do.

“If you call most look-alike agencies and ask for a Marilyn Monroe, they’ll charge you $500 and not tell you that the girl has a heroin problem,” says Gold. But if one of Gold’s clients requests a Mitt Romney impersonator from his agency, the New York-based Politicos Comedy Brigade, he’ll send them honest evaluations of his impersonators, including unflattering details. “I’ll tell ‘em, ‘This guy looks really good, but he’s a lot shorter than the real deal.’ Or, ‘His voice is OK, but he’s not a great comedian.’ I want them to know exactly what they’re paying for.”
