We are in the throes of a media revolution which has spawned a new generation of in your face celebrities. Today, celebrities are in close contact with their fans through social networking sites like facebook, twitter etc. A spin off of this revolution is the demand, nay, hunger among fans to see the celebrity in flesh and blood. But that is a far off dream. So they settle for the next best thing i.e. a celebrity lookalike. This is where companies providing celebrity impersonators come in.
Being a celebrity means you are now a public property. You can no longer walk alone in the malls. You cannot sip your drinks during breakfast alone anymore. People will scream around you and fight for your autograph. It is hard to walk around without people interrupting you now and then for autograph. That has not included paparazzi snapping your pictures.
The really good celebrity lookalikes are invited on shows and might even get their one minute of fame through bit parts on TV or in the movies. Some really good Elvis impersonators and Beatles impersonators take the stage to perform in Elvis tribute shows and Beatles tribute shows all over the world and in Las Vegas in particular. But it takes a lot of hard work and perseverance to make it as a celebrity impersonator.

Often, the generalization extends to someone who falls short of mainstream or persistent fame but who seeks to extend or exploit it.
