The Great British Take Off (with Bill Dare): Gilded Balloon Teviot, Edinburgh, 2018
I saw comedian and impressionist Jon Culshaw at the Edinburgh Fringe in August 2018 who was interviewed by legendary comedy writer/producer Bill Dare from BBC Radio 4’s Dead Ringers. The show delivered unscripted, spontaneous comedy and career conversation as politicians, sports personalities and celebrities are up for roasting.
Some of my particular favourites were Les Dawson, Terry Wogan, Michael Parkinson and Richard Wilson as Victor Meldrew. Culshaw’s list of accurate impersonations is vast and the audience helped choose which characters appear and what direction the show took. Culshaw had devised clever routines for each impression which made the show tight and very, very funny.
