For some, it's a badge of honor. For others, it's a total nightmare. The 30 people featured below have at least one thing in common: at one point or another, somebody has impersonated them on NBC's Saturday Night Live. Some people, like Hillary Clinton, have been impersonated by multiple performers (Drew Barrymore, Vanessa Bayer, Rachel Dratch, Janeane Garofalo, Ana Gasteyer, Jan Hooks, Kate McKinnon and Amy Poehler). Others have become synonymous with the people they mimic, like frequent guest star Alec Baldwin, who earned raves (and an Emmy nod!) for his portrayal of President Donald Trump.

A version of this article originally appeared on

In just a few weeks, Alec Baldwin will return to Saturday Night Live to host for the 17th time, though he’s made waves this season with his ripe parody of Donald Trump, another broad-shouldered New Yorker who also doesn’t mince words.
