Funny Party Ice Breaker

We invited friends over for dinner a few months ago, and while eating pasta and emptying a few bottles of rosé, we were having a nice time chatting in little groups. But then Alex busted out a question that brought everyone together…

“So… who’s your celebrity look-a-like?”

I’m not sure why the question popped into his head, but once our friends started naming their doppelgängers, we were all crying tears of laughter. Here’s what people have said:

But Chris was the evening’s hero. “On a really good day, I’ll get ‘nerdy Justin Timberlake,'” he said. People also liken him to Ron Howard and Lane from Mad Men, and I pointed out his similarity to comedian Chris Gethard. “YES! All of them,” he said. “I’m every stuffy dork.”

What about you? Do you have a celebrity look-a-like?

P.S. A very easy dinner party, and are you okay with conversational pauses?
