Erika Smith As Marilyn Monroe

Erika Smith is known as one of the top Marilyn Monroe impersonators in the world. Known for her uncanny resemblance to the real Marilyn, her breathy voice and show-stopping performances, Erika has performed for celebrities such as Sir Paul McCartney, Donna Karan, Regis Philbin, Roberta Flack and Senator Andrew McDonald. She has made appearances for such high-end companies as Van Cleef and Arpels, Erno Laszlo, Saudi Petroleum, Empire Casino, Apple Tours, New York’s Summer Concert Series and Authentic Brands Group, the official owner of Marilyn Monroe’s brand and licensing. A regular performer for Empire Casino, Smash Entertainment, Unique Entertainment, A Gala Event, The Park House, and the “NY Rat Pack” (B.B. Kings, Feinstein’s), Erika was honored to be selected to headline in Cairo, Egypt for their 2011 New Year’s celebration and in Xi’an, China in 2012.

Erika has portrayed Marilyn in four feature films, “The Three Chris’s” (2009), “Before The Dust Settles” (2011), “Marilyn Monroe In New York” (2012), “Lady Peacock” (2014), and the documentary “Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf’s” (2013). She has appeared on television as Monroe on CBS’s “The Couch” (2012), “Running Late With Scott Rogowsky” (2013), TruTV’s “Impractical Jokers” (2014), and stars as Monroe in the sitcom pilot “Celebrities To Go!” (2014). She played Marilyn in the off-Broadway play From Here It’s To The Top and Dozen Divas and is the voice of Marilyn for Christian Dior’s new Rouge Dior ad campaign.

When she’s not channeling Monroe, Erika maintains a busy acting and writing career, appearing in film, television and theater. Highlights include 2008’s “The Wrestler,” Erika’s self-penned off-Broadway musical “Sextacular! Sextacular!” (2010), and the upcoming indie film “Dynamite: A Cautionary Tale” (2014).

Erika Smith is a true “Modern Day Marilyn.”

Erika was wonderful! She is an outstanding singer and performer. She took the time to really understand the “behind the scenes” of the Birthday event. She came a day early to visit the location. The “younger folks in the crowd” really thought she was Marilyn Monroe. I have seen several MM impersonators in the past few years, but Erika stands out as the BEST!

Erika was AMAZING! Her look is fabulous and she was on time (early actually!), a pleasure to work with, completely charming, got into the spirit of things and stayed for photos with guests etc. The birthday boy was beyond thrilled and we had a blast. We were just delighted – thanks for being a great sport and a fabulous entertainer! She really does look like Marilyn! Gorgeous woman and a great actor / singer!

Erika put on an amazing show, from her singing to her mingling with the guest. She took pictures with everyone having all Marilyn Monroe’s mannerisms down, a born natural. I have given many parties over the years and was told I out did myself with the entertainment. This was a surprise 60th birthday party for my husband. Memories were made for him as well as our guest. That’s what life is about making great memories. Thanks again for being a part of this special birthday.
