Throughout more than 10 years in the industry our Ali G Lookalike has frequently been described as ‘the closest entertainment you could possibly get to Sacha Baron Cohen’s characters without booking the original’. His act usually comprises of stand-up comedy that is loyal to the characters but using fresh material, sharp improvisation, and a customised interview with an individual selected by the client.
During his career he has performed with the likes of character comedian Dame Edna Everage, and stand-up comics such as Reginald D Hunter, Gina Yasherei and the late Bernard Manning. His comedic interviews have also put several celebrities in the hot-seat such as Ally McCoist, Jo Guest, and Anthony Wilson to name but a few. His character T.V appearances include ITV’s Stars and Their Doubles, Sky Sports FA Cup programme and on CNN’s international coverage of the Sunburst Convention of Celebrity Impersonators in Florida where he brought home the award for Best Overall Celebrity Recreation.
The act has been consistently popular at a wide range of events and with varied client types such as Royal Bank of Scotland, Yell.com, Exxon Mobil and Charities like Vision and Children First. Trained at the Central School of Speech and Drama, his qualifications include a B.A in Drama and a Masters in Classical Acting. Whichever character he takes on, he is notorious for remaining in character no matter what the situation which always guarantees entertainment that is exciting and genuinely funny. For those seeking a unique comic act with real attention to detail this is the one for you.
The format for the stage show is typically a 20-25 minute set. About half of this is solo stand-up comedy and the rest of which is a comical custom-made interview with someone connected to the event. This set is flexible and can be split into two and slotted around any hosting/ presenting and improv’ in character. I hope the attached images and biog/description is useful for offering this increasingly popular act.
