Mohr Cowbell

Everyone thinks they can do a killer Christopher Walken impression. Just mention the actor’s name around a group of frat boys and you’ll think they’re all having simultaneous strokes.

Thing is, they all have something to learn from Jay Mohr. The Saturday Night Live alum and scene-stealing Jerry McGuire actor built his career on imitation, but now he’s embarking on a national comedy tour that lands in Phoenix on Thursday.

Given that he recently became a dad, has appeared in the occasional television series and films, and worked on Ice Cube’s Are We There Yet?, Mohr should have a metric ton of new material to work with.
