Family Guy Peter Griffin Impersonator is So Spot-On It's Eerie

Family Guy Peter Griffin Impersonator is So Spot-On It's Eerie

At the 2014 Allentown Comic Con, a Family Guy cosplayer not only looks the part, but he even talks and acts the same way as Peter Griffin, which you need to watch to believe.

More likely than not, you've seen a very good cosplay of something already; but is it as good as this one? Over on the Allentown 2014 Comic Con, a cosplayer by the name of "Real Life Peter Griffin" wowed everyone not just by looking the part of Family Guy's hefty protagonist (which isn't that hard to do, admittedly), but even sounding and acting the part. It's so spot-on, it's a bit weird and awesome at the same time. Don't believe me? Check the video for yourself and watch around the 0:30 mark to understand what I'm jabbering on about.

In his Facebook page, Real Life Peter Griffin posted a message to thank his supporters.

I just wanted to say hi to all the new followers. Thanks for following me! It's amazing how that spontaneous decision I made to join a costume contest turned into a viral sensation hahaha. Thank you all for following! I hope to one day work on family guy and eventually start a voice acting career! If there are any other characters you'd like to hear let me know and I will do them and post them on here! Again thanks all.

In other Family Guy news, series creator Seth McFarlane defends the death and resurrection of Brian, and said he was very surprised at the fan outrage over it.

What do you think of this real life Peter Griffin? I daresay he can be a stand-in if ever there's a Family Guy real life movie -- though I hope that doesn't come to pass anytime soon. Have you seen another impersonator who not only looked the part but also talked and moved like it, too?

Okay, I think there's an error in this article. That's not an impersonator. That's the actual Peter Griffin.

And to answer your question, there was this con where Grant Morrison encountered a Superman cosplayer who was perfect both in characterization and looks, and took the chance to interview him. A friend of Morrison's tried to do the same thign with an in-character Bizarro cosplayer, who unfortunately wouldn't leave them alone afterwards and, in true Bizarro fashion, took every attempt to get him away as a display of their desire to have him stay. Luckily, when they were trying to get rid of him at a party, they managed to explain that the most Bizarro-like thing to do in order to party was to leave the party.

That is amazing! I adore this man, I want to be his friend.

Oh my god. Who the hell cares?

That was mean. I care. We all care. He's awesome!

why is Peter Griffin pretending to be a stand up comedian? I mean he's awesome and funny but he should really get back to Quahog

This video just won't play for me. I have tried the same video from two different uploaders, in three different browsers with and without security plugins, in two different computers running two different operating systems. I think it's an encoding issue. Half of the videos in YouTube I have tried over the past couple of days just won't play. I'm not sure if it's from Flash's recent update or if Google has been "improving" things again. It's really becoming annoying.

It would have been amazing if someone was there as the giant chicken.

Between the bad mic and the crowd I can't make out most of what he is saying, but he does sound like Peter.

I don't see what everyone is talking about. Sure, he has the look of Peter, but that voice sounds barely like him. In fact, it kind of put me out of watching the whole thing because his voice sounds off compared to Peter's...

Ha, incredible! I laughed really hard! Great Peter!
But: The best pun in this video doesn't go to Peter, but the girl at the desk! ;)

Heh, thats the most I've laughed at Peter Griffen in a while. And it's not even on the show.

Hat is off to you sir.

I laughed harder than I needed to on some of those puns... and I do not regret it...

Hope Seth picks you up to use in some "one-off gag" on Family Guy or something like that, Real-Life Peter Griffin...

He's an imposter! NO BUTTCHIN!

....He's pretty funny, but I can't help but wonder how this came to be.... did he think he looked like Peter, or did he make himself look that way...

I forsee him being referenced or even used in future episodes of the show. It was a damn good impersonation.

turn on closed captions. looks like this time its manual addition and not automated google translation and it helps a lot due to poor audio quality.

Capcha: move mountains

i know peter is fat but hes not a mountain yet.
