Rory Bremner Biography

From pop star to political pundit, Scottish-born satirist Rory Bremner is one of the UKs most popular impressionists, comedians and awards hosts.

Twenty-five years ago, Rory Bremner put on a duffel coat and performed his first public impression. Nine years later, he starred in his first BBC series Now For Something Else, a variety sketch show where he impersonated Sean Connery and Terry Wogan.

While the frenetic funny man may be best recognized for his regular cameo on Whose Line is It Anyway? (that was Bremner as Prince Charles on a dating show), his wicked impressions of Tony Blair and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad have landed him in popular one-man shows and on BBC news and comedy spots like Mock the Week, Whose Line Is It Anyway and They Think It’s All Over.

From pop star to political pundit, Scottish-born satirist Rory Bremner is one of the UKs most popular impressionists, comedians and awards hosts.

Twenty-five years ago, Rory Bremner put on a duffel coat and performed his first public impression. Nine years later, he starred in his first BBC series Now For Something Else, a variety sketch show where he impersonated Sean Connery and Terry Wogan.

While the frenetic funny man may be best recognized for his regular cameo on Whose Line is It Anyway? (that was Bremner as Prince Charles on a dating show), his wicked impressions of Tony Blair and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad have landed him in popular one-man shows and on BBC news and comedy spots like Mock the Week, Whose Line Is It Anyway and They Think It’s All Over.

Bremner's comedic antics have been known to be politically controversial - he convinced Labour's Margaret Beckett he was the then Prime Minister Gordon Brown during a convincing phone conversation.

When he's not prank-calling members of Parliament, the tri-lingual comedian writes farcical plays and translates operas from French and German into English. He recently "wit-synced"at The Big Brecht Fest at London's Young Vic Theatre.

Rory is widely rated as Britain’s sharpest impressionist – a one-man opposition party – with his Channel Four show Bremner, Bird & Fortune which regularly won awards as the best TV satire.

Born in Edinburgh in 1961, 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 along the way. While still at university, he performed at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and began his career on satirical radio shows before embarking on a seven-year spell at the BBC.

Since 1999, Rory Bremner 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.

When not working Rory enjoys travel, opera, cooking, sport (especially cricket- he had a 1985 Top 20 hit as ‘The Commentators’ with N.n..nineteen not out) and motor racing - he owns a 1963 Alfa Spyder.
