Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

I'm fluent in German, capable in french, and have spent in excess of 100 weeks in Europe, managing EU business, in local language.

That said, I prefer not to perform in either language, while in the US. It simply takes too long to get my ears tuned away from the local language, just as it takes an hour or two to tune-in to french or german, when in-country.
