Tim Andrews is clearly the best Regular Guy because of his sense of humor, his internet and geek culture savvy, and his voice impersonations. One of my favorites is Michael McDonald. I’m not sure why I like that impersonation so much; perhaps it’s because I hate Michael McDonald’s singing and music with such a burning, searing passion that I will love anything making fun of him. Such as Paul Rudd in The 40-Year-Old Virgin.
My favorite instance of Tim Andrews impersonating Michael McDonald came probably sometime in 2009 or early 2010 when a caller asked him if he ever forgot who he was or had any sort of identity crisis because of all the voices he does. Tim responded with something like, “Yeah, sometimes when I’m in bed with my girlfriend, I’ll break into Michael McDonald: ‘Oh, you know, I’d really like to have sex with you again….’ Man, I wish I had saved that one.
Another great Michael McDonald–related memory on the Regular Guys show was during the Regular Guys Squares when one of the squares was Michael McDonald, and instead of requesting him, the caller accidentally said “Norm McDonald”, and without even missing a beat, Tim broke into a great Norm McDonald. “Oh, hey there, I’m Norm McDonald in the Regular Guys Squares, there. Yeah, that was a good choice you made, there.” Or something like that. I’ve got to start saving my favorite Regular Guys clips.
I did save the latest appearance of the Michael McDonald impersonation on the show. The final caller of the show would win tickets to see Michael McDonald and Boz Scaggs in concert, so one caller requested that Tim Andrews regale us with some of his hilarious Michael McDonald impersonation:
