Grant Paulsen trotted out his off-the-cuff Obama impression on the Grant & Danny Show Wednesday.

Early returns: not good.

"You're in your own head a little bit, I think. You're in your own head a little bit," Danny soothed his co-host, a little bit. "I don't know what happened. You were closer before."

"I was. I was doing the impression all last night driving through his neighborhood and I was killin' it," Grant assured. "Felt better then."

There's perhaps an explanation: You weren't killin' it.

This offers a painful reminder of the first time Grant tried out his Obama impression, which sounded a decent bit more like Jay Gruden, and went so badly, Grant all-out bailed on it halfway through and just finished the aside in his normal speaking voice. All the while sitting next to a guy who's so damn good at impressions, a professional football team threatened suit!

Which brings us to Grant's Sebastian Maniscalco impression.

"Oh, my Sebastian Maniscalco's perfect." Ehhhhhh.... not so much.

I dunno. Maybe, like, I dunno. Maybe no more impressions for awhile.
