Josh Berry: Work in Progress: Peter Pizzeria, Leicester, 2020
I had heard a lot about how good a comic impersonator Josh Berry was, and I went along to see him for the first time at the Leicester Comedy Festival in February 2020. He did not disappoint.
Berry’s impersonations were wide ranging, extremely accurate and hysterically funny. He began the set as comedian James Acaster with all the mannerisms and immaculate voice and then did a sketch describing the range of the Scottish accent incorporating Andy Murray, Iain Stirling, Billy Connolly and Frankie Boyle to demonstrate this. The sketch was inspired and very amusing. Others followed including Prince Harry, Dara O’Braian and Josh Widdicombe with talented Berry providing a very entertaining hour of work in progress that made me want to see a full proper show.
