CHICAGO -- Northbrook teenager Ryan Goldsher has won the $10,000 grand prize for his celebrity impressions after appearing as a contestant on Dana Carvey's comedy reality television show, "First Impressions."

Goldsher, 19, had the opportunity to share a stage with comic greats Dana Carvey and Jon Lovitz on the USA Network's reality competition show. He told WGN that Jay Leno also surprised him and the other competitors, and that the entire experience feels like a dream.
