Impressionist comedian and media personality Rory Bremner is an accomplished Scottish entertainer known for his political satire and inspection of current affairs. Rory’s knowledgeability fused with his hysterical views and insights into technical topics, science, politics and more light-hearted subject matters such as mainstream culture make for a multidimensional show.
They call him the ‘master of mimicry’ and his astute and impressive grasp of the subjects he covers makes his impersonations of political leaders real and genuine, and have opened up further roles as a political consultant and speaker. He is a consummate professional and a naturally funny man who has a proven ability to engage audiences with his quick wit, on-point impersonations and interesting judgements.
