Alistair Mcgowan Not Just a Pretty Voice
"Even if Alistair McGowan wasn't an impressionist and stuck simply to stand-up gaggery, he'd surely be one of the best comics on the circuit. As it is, he gives us a double layer of excellence." - This Is Nottingham “Wickedly funny mimicry” - Sunday Mirror “Supreme impressionist ...” - Telegraph
The nation’s favourite impressionist, Alistair McGowan, is returning to his stand–up roots as he hits the road again this autumn in his critically acclaimed new one one-man stand-up show. Due to popular demand, his spring 2013 show, ‘Not Just a Pretty Voice’ has been extended with 25 dates now booked in across the UK kicking off in Wimbourne on 13th September.
Asking the big questions like: would the world be a happier place if Ed Milliband was Prime Minister? What are we really thinking while watching Shakespeare? And is Hilary Devey Jessie J’s mum? Expect to hear everyone from Andy Murray to Colin Murray, riffs on everything from Jeff Stelling to bad spelling and at least one song about butter. Warning: May contain puns!
Alistair is best known to British audiences for his part in four series of BBC1’s BAFTA award-winning ‘The Big Impression’ and for his more recent show, the ITV1 sports comedy series, ‘You Can Not Be Serious’. Alistair has also enjoyed appearances on BBC1’s Live at the Apollo, ITV’s Jason Manford’s Comedy Rocks, A Question Of Sport and The Comedy Annual on ITV1.
The skilled impressionist also has an impressive CV when it comes to his work in radio including regular features on Radio 4 comedy shows such as: Weekending, The Harpoon, The Nick Revell Show, The Young Postmen, The House of The Spirit Levels, Life, Death and Sex With Mike and Sue. He also co-wrote and starred in four series of The Game's Up (a satirical sports show) on Radio Five Live, was a team captain on two series of the Radio 4 panel show 'First Impressions' and made one disastrous appearance on 'Just A Minute.'
Not Just A Pretty Voice is Alistair’s second one-man show comedy tour in recent years. He returned to the comedy stage after a break of 10 years with his one man show Alistair McGowan: One and Many in 2009 and also played a sold out run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival the same year.
