SR Pick [Retro-Video]: Kevin Pollack Does Best Shatner Ever!

Published 6 years ago by , Updated March 3rd, 2014 at 6:27 am,

I saw this Kevin Pollack stand-up routine only ONCE, many years ago – but I never forgot it. In it he (as a huge fan) does a hysterical riff on Star Trek (original crew). Without a doubt, Pollack does the BEST impersonation of Shatner as Kirk. Ever.

Check it out for yourself after the jump.

Thanks so much to regular Screen Rant reader “The Big Dentist” for posting a Youtube link in our 1600+ comment Star Trek discussion thread that pointed me in the right direction. I haven’t seen this in many years and it still brought a smile to my face and made me laugh almost as hard as I did the first time I saw it. icon smile SR Pick [Retro Video]: Kevin Pollack Does Best Shatner Ever!

If you’re a classic Trek fan, I hope you got as much of a kick out of this as I did.

  1. Thanks Vic, I’d never seen this before. His Christopher Walken is amazing as well.

  2. Ray O, yeah, his Walken is just as spooky as the man himself!

  3. Wow, hos Christopher Lloyd is phenominal

  4. This is great! Kevin Pollack is amazing and I loved him in all his films, especially The Usual Suspects.


  5. I guess I’ll have to wait until I get home. Sorry turtle network can’t seem to bring it up. DRAT!

  6. He was part of the William Shatner Roast…. Spot on.

  7. Christopher Lloyd ? Who in the world does a Christopher Lloyd impersonation lol I think he is the first person I ever heard do one and it was spot on.

  8. You made my day. many thanks, sir!

  9. if you can track it down, his Alan Arkin is also quite noteworthy

  10. That was hilarious! But who was the actor he was impersonating as the drunk guy?

  11. The drunk was Dudley Moore.

  12. @John – I think the drunk guy is Dudley Moore as Arther…I could be wrong though.

  13. Great bit. Saw it years ago and forgot about it.

    Drunk Scotty is Dudley Moore.

  14. Who’s Brian at the end?

  15. Thanks. I do remember how Dudley Moore acted as Arthur now and Pollack nailed him.

  16. That was GREAT!! Thanks for sharing it!!

  17. Rofl Christopher LLyod as Spock, really an LOL since he palyed a Klingon in Episode 3 was it??

  18. Yeah Lloyd was the klingon in the Search for Spock.
    Think he was doing Lloyd’s character in Taxi. Been so long since I’ve seen that.

    I knew he was a comedienne but never seen him. This was fantastic. Especially impressed with his Moore accent.

  19. wow, awesome impressions

  20. Its Dudley Moore as Aurthur lol

  21. I cracked up laughing at his Jack Nicholson. Which one was the Christopher Walken? I must have confused him for someone else!

    “Hocus Pocus” :) I loved Jack Nicholsen in ‘The Witches of Eastwick” I think I might have to watch it again.

    James.T.Kirk was spot on, wasn’t he!

  22. That’s a different Youtube clip, Gottarhyme. He does Walken answering the door to Trick-or-Treaters. Priceless.

  23. Found that one. Loved it.

    ‘Wow! You’re car’s alive! Chase me.’ :D
