Rory Bremner and Jan Ravens: Underbelly George Square, Edinburgh, 2018
I sat on the front row of a packed audience of the Underbelly in George Square to watch two of Britain’s most popular impressionists Rory Bremner and Jan Ravens join forces for one show. Bremner impersonated everyone from Donald Trump via Tony Blair and Boris Johnson to Dara O’Briain and David Attenborough. They both had fifteen minutes on stage and appeared twice solo before culminating in a brilliant conceived Fawlty Towers Brexit sketch (with Bremner as Basil and Ravens as Sybil) towards the end of the hour. The impressions and sketches were very accurate, brilliant written and conceived as ever and both talented stars made for a very pleasant hour at the Fringe.
