“Downton Abbey” is the biggest hit show on PBS in many years. So popular, in fact, that a one-man show poking gentle fun at “Downton Abbey” is touring the country, including a stop at MSU’s Wharton Center this week.

Current State’s Scott Pohl talks with actor-comedian-impressionist Luke Kempner, who stars in "America's Got Downton." He has performed in everything from big stage musicals to small comedy clubs, and he’s posted lots of clips on YouTube.

The ball really got rolling for him when his clip “Downstairs at Downton” went viral.
