LUKE KEMPNER

Always Be Comedy: The Tommyfield pub, Kennington, London, 2018
Always Be Comedy Online: Online: 2020
Luke Kempner’s Twitch Match Special: Online: 2020

I always enjoy and admire watching impressionists and Luke Kempner is one of the best of the current crop.  He played Always Be Comedy in October 2018 and highlights in his fifteen-minute set included Michael McIntyre, Alan Carr, Iain Stirling, Donald Trump and Andy Murray plus Jeremy Kyle who featured in an inspired routine and questioned passengers on the night bus home!

In May 2020, Kempner appeared at Always Be Comedy Online in the guise of Joe Wicks and Gary Barlow.  The routines were inspired and hysterical.  Both impressions were exceptionally accurate, and Kempner was extremely likeable, funny and very entertaining with the audience.

Kempner had the inspired idea of making an online show using a computer-based cricket game and providing all the voices of the cricket commentators.  I watched Twitch Match Special in July 2020 and everyone from Geoffrey Boycott to Henry Blofeld could be heard which enhanced the viewing experience with a high comic effect.

Kempner is a master comedy impressionist and I look forward to seeing him again soon.
