Kelly Ripa and Dana Carvey.

Regis Philbin may have left “Live!” but on Thursday, his spirit (or at least, his voice) was resurrected by one Dana Carvey, who did a pitch-perfect Regis impression while c0-hosing with Kelly Ripa.

“Dana greeted me backstage by doing Regis, and there was a moment where I was like, ‘Oh my God, he’s here?” Ripa told the daytime ABC show’s audience. “It was like, your parents came home early and the Keg party was in full swing.”

“Right now Regis is watching, he’s in his boxers,” Carvey quipped before launching into his full on Reej voice. “I’m making a Spirulina smoothie over here, Joy come on, I need some protein powder, gimme some Spirulina.”

The “Saturday Night Live” vet noted “Kidding Regis, kidding!” while Ripa cooed, “You do the best Regis.” Second only to the actual man himself, presumably.
