Simply Sammy! - Doug Starks

Doug Starks wears the title of Mr. Entertainment with ease. The multi-talented Starks pulverizes audiences with his remarkably haunting impersonation of the original Mr. Entertainment, the late great Sammy Davis Jr.

At the tender age of six, Doug Starks was performing in front of anyone who would look - and sometimes even when no one was looking! Bitten by the show-biz bug at a young age, Starks always knew that he was born for the stage, and at seven years old, Starks found his true calling. After seeing Sammy Davis Jr. perform live, Starks knew that, one day, he would be entertaining audiences just like him. Sixteen years later, with a lot of hard work and determination, his dream as a young boy became a reality. Desiring to do "all things Sammy," Starks immersed himself in a variety of classes including tap dancing, gun twirling and acting, excelling in every area.

Garnering a menu of talents, including a voice as smooth as Johnny Mathis, a grace like Gene Kelly, a comedic styling comparable to the likes of Eddie Murphy or Robin Williams, and impersonations that make Rich Little take a second look, every time Starks hit the stage he had audiences jumping to their feet. Add to the above Starks ability to play a plethora of instruments, including piano, harmonica and drums; and it's easy to see why Starks is the ultimate entertainer.

Starks' talents quickly made him a sought-after artist, and he soon found himself headlining top comedy clubs all over the country and performing everywhere from Radio City Music Hall in New York to the main stage of the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Starks also appeared on both the small and silver screens, including the 1994 feature "Fear of a Black Hat," the first film ever to sellout in the midnight showing slot at the Cannes Film Festival. Starks also performed as the opening act for many of the industry's top entertainers, among them, Julio Iglesias, Natalie Cole, Whitney Houston and Ray Charles. In addition to his highly acclaimed stage performances, Starks was instrumental in helping to launch the tremendously successful nationally syndicated Tom Joyner Morning Show, and dominated the radio airwaves himself with his many characters, including The Reverend Brother Pastor Deacon Doctor Doug and Uncle Buddy, during his own nationally syndicated comedy show for 13 years.

Now residing in Las Vegas, Starks has been regularly paying tribute to his beloved personal friend and mentor, the legendary Sammy Davis Jr. Starks' dead-on performance and remarkable physical resemblance to Davis Jr. has been captivating Vegas audiences for years.
