Rory Bremner is Britain’s best-loved impressionist. With a repertoire of over one hundred characters, he impersonates everyone from film stars to chat show hosts, sportsmen to newsreaders and politicians to fellow comedians. His series Rory Bremner…Who Else? and Bremner, Bird & Fortune, have been among the sharpest satire shows on television. Rory frequently appears in one-off topical specials includingBetween Iraq and a Hard Place, and Silly Money, a four part satirical documentary on the global banking crisis. He frequently appears on a range of both comic and serious programmes including Question Time, The One Show, QI, and This Week. He was a regular on BBC 2’s Mock the Week and partnered Erin on the Saturday night hit Strictly Come Dancing.
Rory has also hosted Breakfast with Frost, written diaries for the Daily Telegraph and The New Statesman, and translated a number of operas including Kurt Weill’s Der Silbersee for Broomhill Opera (he speaks fluent German, French and Spanish). He’s even achieved charttopping status with his single 19 Not Out (performed with the BBC cricket commentary team).
He has twice won the British Comedy Award for Top Male Performer as well as BAFTA’s Best Light Entertainment Award.
