Imitation is the Greatest Form of Flattery

“Wickedly funny mimicry”

This is high praise indeed from the Sunday Mirror; as they are normally purveyors of cutting criticism and caustic observations when reviewing any form of artistic entertainment. But Alistair McGowan is different to all of the rest as he is completely the opposite of generic and ordinary. Along with his glamorous sidekick; Ronni Ancona; his most memorable moments are always those that are fondly remembered from the timeless ‘The Big Impression.’ This programme may have seemed like a flimsy concept at first (as haven’t we all seen comedians both past and present mocking other celebrities and making fun of their mannerisms?); but it was a slow-burning show that became a nationwide success due to the likeability of the dynamic duo as they gelled together perfectly.

They never overstepped the mark or were overly cruel and scathing; which is why they charmed the country with their hilarious portrayals of famous types such as Posh and Becks; possibly the most famous couple in the world. The Beckhams; being good-humoured sorts themselves; gave their full blessing as gently poking fun at people can result in comedy gold. If you want to see the master in action then head down to the Lowry Theatre on the 11th November as the ‘Not Just a Pretty can i buy ambien in mexico Face’ tour comes to Manchester. Alistair McGowan reverts back to his stand-up roots in this two-hour show and you can expect belly laughs a-plenty and at least one song about butter as it holds a particularly special place in the heart of this great Scot for some baffling reason.
