Impressionist, Steve Bridges, who was a legend for his George W. Bush impersonation was found dead at his home on Monday.
He was 48 years-old.
Bridges returned from China on Feb. 23 and complained to friends of “super jet lag,” manager Randy Nolen said.
Bridges’ maid found the comic dead about 9:30 a.m. Saturday in his Los Angeles home, Nolen said.
It appeared that he died of natural causes, but an autopsy will be conducted, said Craig Harvey, chief of operations for the Los Angeles County coroner’s office.
Bridges’ George W. Bush impression made him a regular on “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” and earned him an invitation to the White House in 2003.
In 2006, Bridges joined Bush in a comic routine at the 2006 White House Correspondents’ Association dinner in Washington, D.C., and at a Ford’s Theatre benefit.
Nolen said Bush called Bridges’ brother, Phillip, on Monday and offered condolences.
Bridges is survived by his parents, Thomas and Margaret Bridges, brothers Phillip and Jon, and sister Elizabeth Bridges.
A service will likely be held in the next few days near the family’s Northern California home, with a memorial service to follow in Los Angeles.
