Edgar Allan Poe Impersonator


Edgar Allan Poe Impersonator Tribute Performance 

Edgar Allan Poe Impersonator
One of professional variety tribute artist Tim Beasley's favorite "Dead Legends" to perform as is Edgar Allan Poe

As the original "master of the macabre," Edgar Allan Poe holds a very honored place in Tim's mind. Being an accomplished multi-media and live stage actor coast to coast in a career for over 32 years,  Tim is well known nationally for his supernatural knack of bringing back many deceased popular celebrities and historical figures from the “dead” in his portrayals (Mark Twain, Jim Morrison, John Lennon, Orville Wright, Teddy Roosevelt, Ronald Reagan, General Patton).

Tim’s chilling portrayal of Edgar Allan Poe is not a séance, spirit possession or channeling phenomenon, but simply his uncanny ability to pull Poe’s deceased personality, literary mind and physical likeness out of Poe's Baltimore MD tomb and back into the light of the living!

This heralded performance is a magical people-magnet and a strong entertainment attraction for any sophisticated audience as Tim will mystically conjure up Edgar Allan Poe himself, in the audiences‘ imaginations, by breathing life back into  Poe’s fabulous tales of terror and other literary masterpieces. As any fan of Poe’s will tell you, it’s the haunting memory of his tales and poetry that eternally lock the reader - listener to the chains of his tormented soul. Tim Beasley will bring you and your guests an evening’s entire "Herd Of Nightmares" as he recites and reads the classic Poe to you, as Poe would have himself.....chilling and thrilling with vivid vocalization and dramatization!

Here's a link to a YouTube video of Tim Beasley as "Edgar Allan Poe" performing an abbreviated read of "The Raven"


Here's another  sold-out entertaining performance for the historic Congressional Cemetery on East Capital Hill, Washington, DC, for its  special "Wine & Spirits" events calendar.  In his typical "Poe Performance" fashion, Tim recites and acts out his renditions of 3-4 Poe classics. These include Edgar Allan Poe's most famous and popular poems, the haunting poetic masterpiece "The Raven"  followed by the beautifully melancholy poems of tragic lost love, "Annabel Lee" and others... 

These are followed by a short intermission for refreshments, which is perfect for a very profitable and successful  "wine" event. The performance resumes with a grand finale of his gothic horror stories, such as the gloriously scary and gruesome tale of murder and madness, "The Tell Tale Heart"  (not for the 'weak of heart,' mind you!) or another of his works you may prefer, such as the wonderfully terrifying "The Black Cat,"  "The Pit and the Pendulum,"  "The Premature Burial," and just perfect for wine events, "The Cask of Amontillado!"

 After the audience recovers with delight from the scary and shocking conclusions of the horrific classics, everyone wants to chat, have a wine toast with and get personal photos (and "paparrazzi" photos for your later promotions media!!!) with "Mr. Poe!" 


"Supernaturally"  superb for any type of "Wine Social," "Special Winery Event" or "Classy Cocktail Party!"

"Quaff, oh quaff this kind fruit of the vine and let's make a toast to the living and the 'spirits!'

Quoth the Raven...it's Party Time!!!"


A return reprised performance for the Congressional Cemetery, 9/7/18

There's one thing about Edgar Allan Poe...the ladies love him!!!


Tim is proud that he was engaged to perform "The Raven" and be co-presenter of the 2008 Private Eye Writers of America Shamus Awards banquet, held at Edgar Allan Poe's final resting place, Westminster Hall and Burying Ground, in older Baltimore, MD. This historical landmark and gothic-style church is one of the most important of all Poe-related locations, visited by many, many  thousands of fans from around the world.

Another great sold-out event!!!
