Alistair McGowan's Big Impression Reviews
Newest Review: ... even if it does play on the public view of the couple to a great deal. Alistair McGown has a huge range of characters and he certainly has the facial expressions and mannerisms of these down to a tee. As well as Becks he does a very good Sven Goran Eriksson which has the swede as a sex maniac, keeping on a sporting theme he also sends up Gary Linekar. The one character I especially like is when he mimics Louis Theroux who must be an inpersonators dream given his style of presenting and the way he conducts himslef, McGowen really takes advantage of the type of show Theroux presents in developing his sketches.

The main two impressionists in this show are Alistair Mcowan and Roni Ancona who take on the female roles. Both are skilled comics and great at impersonations, I really enjoy their Posh and Becks which is very funny even if it does play on the public view of the couple to a great deal.

Ronni Ancona and Alistair Mcgowan have now invaded Friday night's tv viewing giving the BBC some positive competition to fight against Friends on E4 and Brookside. The show is on for half an hour once a week, on Friday nights at 8.30pm BBC1. Impression programmes are few and far between. They aren't as popular as many other types of television. If they were there would be far more of them. Mike Yarwood was one of the best in the 1970s.

Good, show, especially Richard and Judy Sketch. - Advantages: Brilliant Impressions, Funny, Takes the mick out of popular t.v shows. - Disadvantages: The woman is not that funny., Some sketches go on and on and on and on and on, get what I mean.

I first decded to watch this programme when it first started and have never stopped.One of my mates reccommended it to me so i though i would give it a try. The first time i saw it i thought oh my god how does he do it.The range of impressions he does is fabulous i've seen all of them and they just great.He does Eastenders, The Beckhams,The Royle Family (one of the best) and many more. After the first show i thought all the other shows would be full of the same impressions but suprisingly it was all different. His show is great and a deffinate one to watch so spare half an hour every Sunday night at 8:30pm!!! ... Read the complete review
