Early life[edit]

Jamie Costa was born on May 12, 1990 and grew up in Charleston, South Carolina. He attended James Island Christian School before finishing high school at Massanutten Military Academy where he graduated as the highest ranking cadet.[1] After briefly attending The Citadel, he transferred to North Greenville University. It was there where he realized his passion for performing and became involved in the theater program.

Career[edit]

After graduating NGU, Costa moved to Los Angeles to further pursue a career in entertainment. In 2014, he became widely known for capturing the likeness and spirit of Robin Williams, who had died earlier that year, after uploading a video tribute titled "Never Had A Friend Like Him.".[2] The video featured impressions of Williams' many memorable characters.
