WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Television impressionist McGowan shows his phenomenal range of talents with words as he mixes pert poems with incisive impressions.
The nation’s favourite impressionist, Alistair McGowan from The Big Impression, will open this year’s Festival. Alistair resurrects his legendary celebrity impressions and introduces audiences to a host of new never-before-heard voices along the way - nobody does it better! But Alistair’s stand-up is about much more than impersonation - expect sharp observations, poetry and romance, animals and surrealism, love and anger, wordplay and ‘greenery’ as well as footballers and film stars. No make-up or costume changes - just one man, a microphone and an amazing multitude of voices - including most importantly, his own.
