Twenty Two year old YouTube sensation Mikey Bolts had something to say and he wasn’t afraid to say it. So he did. In a cartoon character’s voice.
Bolts was the winner of the “I am Stewie” contest, The Family Guy’s search for the best Stewie Griffin sound-a-like, hosted by Create.It and FOX. Bolts’ winning impersonation took years of work to hone.
"Imitations and impressions are like learning a language. It takes a long time to become fluent," Bolts said in a recent interview.
Bolts heard about the contest from a friend and the two entered together for a little healthy competition. Ultimately, Bolts’ 215,000 loyal YouTube channel subscribers and his exceptional talent for cartoon character impersonations landed him in the winner’s seat. When asked what fuels his passion for impersonations and YouTube broadcasting, he replied, “It’s the people. Knowing people are excited to watch.”
Create.It is built on the mission of giving a voice to talent that deserves to be heard. Our team sends a big high five to Mikey Bolts for not just having talent, but for creatively sharing it with his online community.
