Take with a Generous Laugh!
15 September 2015 | by lisacarlsonSee all my reviews

Original and Funny; Impastor airs Wednesday evenings on TV Land. Actor, Executive Producer Michael Rosenbaum poses as the main character who is a gay Lutheran Pastor. Most of the cast including him I haven't seen before but they enrich his entertaining performance. Theater, film and television actor David Rasche as the uptight Aiden Schmidt is perhaps the most familiar as he was in the sitcom Sledge Hammer. He has appeared in many shows over his long career. Growing up Lutheran many of the stories and characters ring right and are drawn with delightful exaggeration. In this day and age of a very present LGBT ambiance it's important to give viewers the credibility of gay characters regardless if they are serious or funny. Impastor succeeds in spades.
