MOST satirists expect some negative feedback when they decide to parody celebrities, but for YouTube sensation and comedian Charlie Hides, he’s been the recipient of personal praise from the likes of Cher and Lady Gaga.
Lana Del Ray, though? That’s a different story.
The comedian, whose famous parodies simultaneously show admiration and respect for the divas he lampoons, is currently in Australia to perform to audiences in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.
Most notable for his take on Cher and Madonna, Hides said it was the strong personalities of divas and their uniqueness that inspired his particular brand of comedy.
