Hailing from Chappaqua, New York, home of the Clintons, Julia Finkelstein is the sole heir to Hillary’s pantsuit collection.
In 2012, Julia moved out to Claremont, California to study film, and you better believe she wrote her thesis on Film Noir. Her favorite film from the genre is Double Indemnity and she doesn’t care if you think that’s a mainstream choice.
Julia spent her college breaks interning for TV shows such as Inside Amy Schumer and Broad City, only to realize that being a production intern will absolutely not get you in front of the camera.
Doctor’s orders require Julia to do a live musical at least once every two years to sustain life. Most recently, she starred in a Bachelor Parody Musical in which she played the “drunk, crazy one”.
Globally recognized as “that girl who did that Ariana Grande impression”, her Vogue Parody video “73 Questions with Ariana Grande” gained upward of eight million views across the Internet, leading her to be written about in at least three different languages and followed by Jonathan Van Ness on Instagram. She then proceeded to wow the masses with an impression of Lady Gaga, recreating her infamous “100 people in the room” press tour speech leading people to slowly shake their heads in disbelief and say, “hang on…no, no, no. Is that the same person who made that Ariana Grande video? Damn, she’s good.”
While most widely identified as Ari & Gaga, impressionista Julia Finkelstein can be seen on the web as Billie Eilish, Mrs. Maisel, the entire Rose family from Schitt’s Creek, Emily Blunt’s Mary Poppins, and her mother’s favorite, Wayne Newton. You may have also caught her as hostess of “The Cheesecake Machine” in an episode of ABC’s Black-Ish.
Named one of PAPER Magazine’s 100 People Taking Over 2019, Julia would really like to take over 2019, but presently works at the front desk of a children’s gymnastics facility. Julia does not do gymnastics, nor will she ever. Actually, she can do a cartwheel and a round-off but hasn’t in a long time.
Julia has freckles and resides in Los Angeles, CA.
