Will Ferrell: Harry Caray impression part of Jimmy Kimmel appearance

Posted on


Holy cow! On Monday’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, Will Ferrell brought back his impression of legendary Chicago Cubs broadcaster Harry Caray to celebrate the team’s first World Series appearance since 1945.

Ferrell, who frequently impersonated the late Caray during his days as a cast member on Saturday Night Live, was in top form, telling anecdotes about the afterlife in between play-by-play calls of a fictional Cubs game. Caray even had thoughts on the current presidential election and Republican candidate Donald Trump.

“Donny Trump, oh boy. I knew him when he would sneak into the press box and throw Kennedy half-dollar coins at the Dominican players,” he joked. “Trump’s got those little tiny mitts. He looked like he was flinging silver dinner platters with those things. It’s the contrast between the coins and the tiny fingers.”

Caray kept things somewhat bipartisan, also joking that President Barack Obama — who was a guest on Kimmel’s Monday broadcast — should open up a shrimp shack after he leaves office.

Watch the full segment — which includes Caray doing play-by-play of Kimmel’s celebrity softball home run — below.
