“I mostly just imitated my teachers back in school. Like, a teacher would leave the classroom and I'd have like 10 minutes to impersonate her in front of the class. Sometimes the teachers would walk in on me imitating them and I'd get detention and have to stare at a corner for hours. But I got real good at impersonating a corner after that. I mastered it. People would be like 'where's Jay?' and someone else would be like, 'Oh, he's over there, impersonating the corner, that's why you didn't notice him.” - Jay Pharoah

Impersonation is his forte and he can impersonate almost everybody. Just take the example of the SNL character Principal Daniel Frye. The character is based on the Indian River High School’s current principal James Frye and it’s the same high school from where Jay graduated.”  - A SNL fan
