Roberts won a Clony Award for his impersonation and tribute to Bob Hope in 2006; and the Bea Foggleman Lifetime Achievement Award in 2009 in Las Vegas. Lynn’s first performances for the military were in 1966 in Germany and Italy. For the past 16 years, he has been touring the U.S. and Canada doing his tributes.
