Comedian and actor James Austin Johnson joined the cast of SNL as one of the three new featured players in September 2021 almost a year after he was called “The best Trump impersonator of all” by Vanity Fair.
James had gone viral for his top-notch, on-spot impression of former President Donald Trump.
Now amidst his SNL coming here’s a James Austin Johnson Wikipedia covering all about his wife, net worth, journey until SNL, height, family, and more.
James Austin Johnson Family
Wishing his grandmother and mother whom he calls the ‘southern female energy’ on Mother’s Day, James expressed it’s from them that he draws 100% of his power.
His grandfather who is survived by his grandmother passed away at the age of 99 in May 2021.
Further, James’ father is Michael Johnson whose bio on Instagram @michaeltalj read: “Husband, father, grandfather, brother, son, and hopefully, friend and encourager to others.”
All we know about James’ mother is that her name is Sarah. And that in 2019, on Mother’s Day, James instead of wishing his mother wrote “Happy Mother’s Day to my dad” on Instagram. From the look of it, he did so as some kind of a joke though.
Also, James seems to have brothers but it is not quite understood.
James Austin Johnson Net Worth
James Austin Johnson had above an estimated $600K net worth by Oct 2021.
A Nashville native now living in Los Angeles, James is a comedian who has appeared on Future Man on Hulu, Robbie on Comedy Central, The Last Tycoon on Amazon, Adam Ruins Everything on truTV, and in the movie Hail Caesar.
The last time we heard, James was performing weekly in Los Angeles at Highland Park’s longest-running comedy show, Rod Stewart Live.
IMDB also credited him for Hail, Caesar! (2016) and Blue Like Jazz (2012).
James has had a lifetime of theatrical training. He was only 10 when he started acting. He studied the Sanford Meisner technique in college. Following this, he did many regular appearances as a stand-up comedian and podcast host, but none of these did more to put James on the map than his “Trump complains about Scooby-Doo” video.
James started with direct mimicry, being openly racist and homophobic just as Trump is. But soon, he realized that people were listening and not liking what they were hearing from him. “When I was repeating what Trump said or heightening it—making it more vicious to people, darker.”
That is when James decided to pivot his famous not-written-out and not-rehearsed Trump impressions with a more abstract take.
In the meantime, fans eagerly wait for James to be on SNL alongside two other cast members: Aristotle Athari and Sarah Sherman.
