November 18, 2011 - Celebrity impersonator Dennis Keogh just returned home to Phoenix, Arizona after working as 007 all week. Keogh's impersonation of Sean Connery reflected just that from his entertaining as James Bond in Las Vegas, San Antonio and Palm Springs.

Keogh is a professional celebrity lookalike/tribute artist/impersonator, and even though the economy has slowed down these days, people are still, maybe even more so, happy to be entertained. From an entertainer's point of view, it is a profession that is hard to never say never to.

From a client's or audience's view point, if they cannot afford the REAL thing in LIVE celebrity entertainment (or if a specific celebrity is not alive anymore) then such celebrity impersonators, like Dennis Keogh as Sir Sean, can more easily be made available. In this case, the entertainment had a license to thrill!

Keogh recently entertained as Connery's 007 in three cities. The week began with Keogh entertaining with an Austin Powers, Lady Diana and an Elvis at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway in Las Vegas, Nevada.

After Vegas, Keogh/Bond flew into San Antonio, Texas for a hotel's grand opening and then on to Palm Springs, California for an Aston-Martin dealership event.

During Keogh's gig in Palm Springs he posed for photos in the famous Elrod House. It was one of the locations used for shooting the Bond film, Diamonds Are Forever (1971).

In addition to just plain loving the travel and unusual locations he might never have enjoyed before 'being Bond,' Keogh says,

"The best part of being a professional lookalike is the opportunity to meet people and other lookalikes - lookalikes you get to know, work with and become friends with for life."


Fans can follow Keogh as himself and as Bond on Facebook!
