Fake Joel Osteen

Michael Klimkowski is comedian who happens to resemble televangelist Joel Osteen. At an Osteen event in Inglewood, California, he showed up dressed as the prosperity gospel advocate and managed to fool a bunch of Osteen fans. And Forum employees, too.

Fake Joel Osteen was eventually discovered, and that scene contains NSFW language. The A.V. Club has a followup from Reggie Henke, who was there with Klimkowski.

Henke also tells us that the confrontation recorded at the end of the video was with Osteen’s head of security. Though that guy asserts they’re going to the jail, Henke notes the “real police” just thought it was funny. “Especially because Mike, our ‘Joel,’ never really dropped character and kept getting approached by ‘fans’ even as we were detained.”

The stunt was engineered by the sketch comedy group Dabs Den.
