A Life in Satire

Rory Bremner
Thu 17 October 2019,

Rory Bremner has been poking fun at the political establishment for more than 30 years and today, with Trump, Boris and Brexit, we need him more than ever. But what about the man behind the impressions? Matthew Sweet (Night Waves, Front Row) invites us to peer behind the mask as he engages Britain’s indisputable master of satire and impersonation in conversation, discussing his fascinating career live on stage.

Along with onscreen clips of comedy heroes and career snapshots, Rory will recount behind the scenes stories from his time on Bremner, Bird and Fortune and as a guest on an impressive roll call of timeless comedies including Spitting Image, Whose Line is it Anyway, Have I Got News for You, Mock the Week, The News Quiz, The Now Show and QI.

Join Rory – and a host of voices – for a unique insight into Britain’s best-loved and best-known impressionist.

This is a pre-launch event for the 16th edition of Bristol’s Slapstick Festival.
