#035: My Interview With 'W' [Podcast]

It is an honor for me to introduce you to my dear friend, John Morgan (a.k.a., President George W. Bush). I met John in 2013 at the Platform Conference in Nashville, TN, over the course of that year, we became close friends. John travels the world encouraging, challenging, and uplifting the hearts of men and women, and we are privileged to have him on the program.

This show is different than any other I’ve done, as John and I allow you, the listener, in on our conversation. I trust you will enjoy this interview with ‘W’.

John Morgan’s Bio:

John C. Morgan

John C. Morgan

For most Americans, there’s nothing like being in the presence of the President of the United States. We know we’re touching history, and for a few moments we feel bigger than life. A chance encounter with the President is a wonder we can’t wait to describe to our friends. When it happens, we want to get as close as possible, shake hands and exchange a word—so we can tell our grandchildren.

John C. Morgan is a rare phenomenon. He was recently hired to add the “Extra WOW factor” for a John C. Maxwell training event. Most people don’t realize that he’s an impersonator, because he’s just that good. But even if they’re expecting an impersonator, John takes them by surprise. He’s amazingly gifted with George W. Bush’s physical appearance, and he has assiduously cultivated the President’s mannerisms and speech patterns. The hair, the shrug, the laugh, the nod, even the verbal Bush-isms—John C. Morgan makes you feel like you’re speaking with the President himself. That’s what Dick Cheney, Jeb Bush and Barbara Walters thought when they met John C. Morgan in character!

On top of it all, John C. Morgan is a showman, musician, actor and comedian who plays the bit for all it’s worth. That’s how he guarantees events are full of surprises in which everyone participates. Whether “W” shows up in a limo with secret service agents to fire your starting gun, appears on the 7th tee to give some pointers and pose for pictures, shows up to make a foreign policy speech at your banquet, or all of the above and more, your guests will have a grand and unforgettable experience.

Stage presentations run the gamut from comedic and musical to dramatic and motivational. John’s performances not only entertain your guests but inspire them to focus on the purposes and themes of your gathering.

John will work with you personally to develop just the right performance elements for your event. His flexible approach allows for periods of spontaneous interaction, alternating with scripted performances.

JOHN MORGAN travels as “the face” of President George W. Bush at corporate, comedic, and faith-based events around the world, bringing joy and inspiration to millions of astonished people who might otherwise never have an audience with America’s Commander in Chief. With a small cadre of “Secret Service” agents stationed around him, John nods his head and greets the crowd with the President’s trademark Texas drawl. John’s show combines his hilarious but respectful impression of President Bush with a few famous George W. faux pas, blended with a mix of parody songs and finishes up with an inspiring message about hope and determination. He elicits heartfelt laughter from both sides of the political aisle.

Discovered at a “Bush For President” rally in 2000, Morgan went from selling appliances to performing at the President’s Inaugural. By 2007, John was bringing his big- time comedic impersonation to arenas all across America, appearing live before tens of thousands on Sean Hannity’s “Freedom Concerts” and before hundreds of thousands on “The Winter Jam Tour Spectacular,” where he amazed audiences with his guitar playing and singing.

Millions more have seen him on America’s Got Talent, The Family Feud, Headline News, Hannity & Colmes, E! Entertainment Network, ABC’s “The View,” and The 700 Club. Fans even voted him a finalist on ABC TV’s celebrity reality show, “The Next Best Thing.” John was awarded America’s # 1 Bush Impressionist along with two “Mirror Image” awards and a 2005 Cloney award for “Best Historical Impersonation” voted on by his peers. Has also been featured on NPR’s All Things Considered, and interviewed in dozen’s of newspapers such as The Sunday London Times.

John was born and raised in Orlando, Florida. He and, his wife of 29 years, Kathy, still reside in sunny Orlando with their four sons, Christopher, Stephen, Daniel and Jonathan, two wonderful daughters-in-law, and three exciting grandkids. John’s inspiring journey is  chronicled in print. My Life as a Bush…and My Heart for Imitating Jesus, with forward by Governor Mike Huckabee, is filled with laugh-out-loud stories, audacious encounters, and spiritual insights. Each chapter of John’s story encourages readers to become imitators of the greatest Man who ever lived.
