Joel Osteen Look-a-Like Crashes a Joel Osteen Event and Wreaks Havoc


Actor Michael Klimkowski looks a lot like celebrity pastor Joel Osteen.

No, seriously. We mean, a lot.

On Oct. 28, Osteen held an event at the Great Western Forum in Inglewood, CA. So Klimkowski decided to show up…as Osteen.

What happened? He fooled just about everybody. From the parking lot attendant, to security personnel, to many of those in the crowd, Klimkowski pulled off his imposter act with great success — even getting so far as the stage.

But Osteen’s security personnel was apparently none too pleased by the gag. According to the AV Club, Osteen security threatened Klimkowski and members of his sketch comedy troupe who were filming with a trip to jail. But Reggie Henke, one of the troupe’s members, told the website that the real cops thought the gag was funny.
