TBT: Meet the Joel Osteen Impersonator Who Infiltrated His Speaking Event

Michael Klimkowski is a struggling comedian in L.A. who just so happens to look a lot like Lakewood Church pastor, best-selling author and TV preacher Joel Osteen.

Last year, he briefly became internet-famous after he infiltrated a  massive speaking event in L.A. by impersonating Osteen.

Though his antics are pretty irreverent (especially the fake baptisms), Klimkowski doesn’t really have anything negative to say about Osteen, and his gag is mostly pretty lighthearted.
