I'd say strictly impersonations (mostly Obama and rappers), and yeah, his Principle Frye character is his only original recurring character I can think of. I'm not a huge fan of him, and have criticized him for being a good impressionist but subpar comedian, but he is slowly getting in some funny moments with 1-time only characters in the digital short type stuff (e.g., I laughed hard at this sex toys obsessed character in Resolution/Revolution). I'd much rather have a funny bad impression (Ferrell as Bush for example) than good impressions that are not funny.
