With their perma-tans, riches and love of women, Donald Trump and Italy's three-time prime minister Silvio Berlusconi are strikingly similar.

The things they say - much of it revolving around women, money, power, (and hair) - are also so similar that it's hard to tell whether the words came from Berlusconi or Trump.

De Salvatore presented the quiz at a Rome Comedy Club show on Friday night, and needless to say, it was difficult for the audience to tell the difference.

See if you can do any better!
