      FWIW it's used here in the sense of a comedians who "does impressions"
      i.e. parodies/caricatures other people's speech or mannerisms. The
      poverty of Cz-Eng dictionaries is displayed yet again in the fact that
      none of them includes this definition, although the word has been
      current for decades
