Rory Bremner is a hugely popular and talented impressionist and comedian, specialising in political satire.
Rory is firmly established as one of Britain’s sharpest impressionists with a reputation for accurate mimicry and topical satire.
In the beginning, Rory put on a duffel coat and performed his first public impressions (of his French teacher!) Nine years later he starred in his first BBC series Now for Something Else, a variety sketch show where he did impressions of Sean Connery & Terry Wogan.
Today, Rory is widely rated as Britain’s sharpest impressionist – a one-man opposition party with his weekly Channel Four show Bremner, Bird & Fortune regularly winning awards as the best satire on television. He ‘does’ over 100 people from Tony Blair to Mohamed al Fayed.
Born in Edinburgh, Rory was educated at Wellington College and went on to attend King’s College, London where he graduated with an honours degree in French, German & imitating lecturers. While still at university, he performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and began his career on the satirical radio shows News Revue (LC) and Weekending (BBC Radio) before embarking on a seven year spell at the BBC.
Since then, he’s appeared in countless comedy shows from Have I Got News For You, Whose Line is it Anyway?, Comic Relief, They Think It’s All Over to Mock the Week & It’ll Be Alright on the Night and has been interviewed more than any other performer by both Wogan & Parkinson.
Rory has now written & starred in over 100 programmes for Channel Four, starting with Rory Bremner, Who Else? and including the specials: From Blair to Here, Blair Did It All Go Wrong?, My Government & I, Geoffrey Malet – A Hero Of Our Time, Bremner, Bird & Fortune at Her Majesty’s Pleasure (to coincide with The Queen’s Jubilee) & Between Iraq & a Hard Place.
Elsewhere Rory has appeared regularly on Breakfast with Frost and has written and performed the BBC radio series Some of Our Pilots Are Missing. He also writes articles and diaries for The New Statesman, The Sunday Telegraph, The Sunday Times and The London Evening Standard. Together with the 2 Johns, (Bird & Fortune) Rory enjoyed their first ever West End appearance with Beware of Limitations.
Since 1999, he has translated two operas; Kurt Weill’s Der Silbersee and George Bizet’s Carmen, the latter for a cast recruited from South African townships who promptly translated the dialogue into Xhosa so Rory couldn’t understand it! Both operas were highly acclaimed and Rory continues to work with the cast and hopes to write and translate more.
