The Zach Galifianakis Impersonator Who Makes $250,000 a Year

Thaddeus Kalinoski

A former hotel employee named Thaddeus Kalinoski uses his remarkably close resemblance to Zach Galifianakis to make a living, earning 250,000 dollars a year!

Kalinoski worked in a Philadelphia hotel, and had not realized his resemblance to the Greek-American star for a while.  However, after his divorce, he put on some extra weight and grew out his beard, which made other people constantly confuse him for Zach Galifianakis.

The recently divorced Kalinoski decided to use this resemblance to his advantage, and started marketing himself as an impersonator.

Now, he gets paid upwards of 1,000 dollars a night to appear at parties as Zach Galifiakis, frequently along with a fake baby and small monkey to imitate the ones in “Hangover”.

Kalinoski now lives in Vegas, and his twin Galifianakis appearance even reached the attention of the “Hangover” producers, who hired him to double for Galifianakis in “Hangover III”.
