John Wayne Tribute

Tribute to Don Donnelly


As a professional actor, Ermal has appeared in many movies, television roles and stage productions. Looking so much like John Wayne, he has been performing as the Duke in Branson, MO as well as world wide as host or emcee and entertainer for corporate events, trade shows, for parties, commercials, infomercials, movies and just about anything one could think of as John Wayne. When he appears, people stand up and cameras appear. "He's the Duke!" they'd yell out. He has become an expert on the life and movies of John Wayne.
He is also the recipient of the 2003 IGCITA Best Impersonator of the Year Award in Las Vegas.

He also was selected to appear in the Coors Light commercials, acting out familiar scenes from several John Wayne movies with Duke's face digitized on his body. "I am honored to do this and grateful for for the opportunity. Words can't express how I fell when I perform as the Duke, especially when we re-enact some famous scenes. It would take three days of shooting for a one-minute commercial, and months editing it to get the scene just perfect. Thanks Duke, for letting me slide my feet into your big shoes."

Ermal is appearing with award-winning yodeler, Paula Press in Branson, Missouri in the "For God and Country" show.

This show is filled with patriotism, Duke's conversion experience, and laughs as Ermal and Paula parody Maureen O'Hara,Lucille Ball and Katherine Hepburn in comic skits parodying scenes from some of Duke's movies and television appearances. Paula adds a dynamic dimension with her music and yodeling while Ermal's story telling keeps you on the edge of your seat. It's a show that will make you want to come back time and again. In fact, you can get season tickets for just that reason. For information, you may call 1-417-598-0088 or
