Rory Bremner

Impressionist, comedian, satirist, translator, columnist, writer, presenter, ballroom dancer, Rory Bremner is either multi-talented or indecisive or both.

Rory is perhaps best known for writing and starring in the political satire show Bremner, Bird and Fortune, for nearly twenty years a mainstay of Channel 4’s comedy output. He won back-to-back BAFTAs for Britain’s Top Comedy Performance in 1995 and 1996, together with three Royal Television Society and two British Comedy Awards.

His breakthrough TV appearance was on Wogan in 1985, following which he had his own series on the BBC from 1986 to 1991. He has since guested on many of Britain’s top comedy shows on radio and TV, including Spitting Image, Whose Line is it Anyway, Have I Got News for You, Mock the Week (where he was team captain for two series), The News Quiz, The Now Show, 7 day Sunday and QI. He appeared more often than any other guest on Britain’s top talk shows Wogan and Parkinson. He often features on The Andrew Marr Show, where he reviews current political events through his many characters.

He has made documentaries on Scottish Soldiers and Diaries for BBC4, traced his family history on Who Do You Think You Are (BBC), explored his own self-diagnosed ADHD on Radio 4 and starred in the hugely successful 2011 series of Strictly Come Dancing with partner Erin Boag. He does live tour shows, often with Jazz Performer Ian Shaw and comedienne Hattie Hayridge and in 2011 began a new satirical show for Radio 4 Tonight with Andy Zaltzman.

He is a regular contributor to The FT, The Telegraph, The New Statesman and Radio Times, for whom he has interviewed Michael Parkinson and David Frost.
