About The Edwards Twins
Eddie and Anthony are identical twins, born in 1965 and raised in Burbank, CA. Both boys were fascinated with celebrities at a very early age. Living near the famous NBC TV studios in Burbank, they would sneak in and watch various TV shows being taped. At home, the brothers would then play together mimicking the stars and memorizing the skits from “The Sonny and Cher Show” “The Carol Burnett Show” and “Laugh In”.
Eddie’s voice was higher pitched then Anthony so he usually got to play the females. One Halloween at the famous night club in Beverly Hills California “La Cage aux Follies” Eddie dressed up as a woman and was asked that night by employees if he had ever thought about impersonating Barbara Streisand. Shortly thereafter, Eddie began seriously studying the art of makeup application and learning the “tricks of the trade” he needed to help him create the illusion of turning an “ordinary looking male into a spectacular world famous female.”
After auditioning 16 times, Eddie was hired by the world famous La Cage aux Follies and for years traveled the globe impersonating Barbara Streisand and Bette Midler. The casting director of La Cage was stunned not only by Eddie’s appearance, but by his uncanny ability to perform EXACTLY like the women he was impersonating.
Meanwhile Anthony attended the California Institute of the Arts to receive a degree in Music, and then moved to San Diego to receive a minor in Police Science. He graduated from The San Diego Police Academy in the early ’90s ready to go in to law enforcement, when The Lord took him back to his roots of entertaining. He joined forces with his Twin Brother Eddie, after Carol Burnett suggested to them that they put a show together based on a pair of identical twins that look and sound like many different superstars. Ms. Burnett was convinced that a show done by identical twin brothers, performing as a host of superstars would be a very unique combination.
35 years later, it is clear that she was right.
