Jay Pharoah gets ready for NFL season by channeling Shannon Sharpe again
Thursday July 30th, 2015

Actor and comedian Jay Pharoah was a guest on SI Now Thursday and hilariously imitated NFL Hall of Famer and former CBS Sports analyst Shannon Sharpe.

Pharoah explained the secret to mimicking Sharpe is to include “a lot of lip-licking and a lot of chin.”

Thursday was not the first time Pharoah imitated the former NFL tight end. After a Sept. 2014 Saturday Night Live skit involving Pharoah's impersonation of Sharpe, the Hall of Famer-turned-broadcaster tweeted his disgust for the comedian's act.

Pharoah might run out of impersonation material soon, considering Sharpe was relieved of his broadcasting duties with CBS Sports in 2014.
