About

Alistair McGowan has worked in every branch of show-business over the last 25 years, and is one of the busiest after dinner entertainers and awards hosts on the corporate circuit.

A charming and sophisticated comedy performer for any event, Alistair McGowan features a star studded cast of impressions including Dot Cotton, Richard Madeley, Dara O’Briain, Jo Brand, Jose Mourinho, David Beckham, Boris Johnson, Professor Brian Cox and many, many more...

He is probably best known for his BAFTA-winning show, The Big Impression alongside Ronni Ancona but he has also acted with the Royal Shakespeare Company and taken lead roles in West End Musicals, including Cabaret and Little Shop of Horrors and in West End plays Art and Pygmalion.

He has sung in and directed several Gilbert and Sullivan productions for Raymond Gubbay and has been a mainstay of countless Radio 4 plays and comedies from Elvenquest to, most recently, Three Pieces In The Shape of A Pear about the life of composer, Erik Satie, which Alistair also wrote.

Alistair was part of the BBC's hugely successful Bleak House and is familiar to younger audiences from CBBC's drama Leonardo.

Alistair McGowan made his Hollywood film debut in Driving Aphrodite and was honoured to be featured on the hugely-popular, Who Do You Think You Are? where he discovered his Anglo-Indian roots. Alistair has also been seen as a stand-up comic on Live At The Apollo, hosted ITV's You Cannot Be Serious and has featured on Mock The Week and countless other shows. He also took part in the first ever gig performed in the UK in French by two English comics when he accepted Eddie Izzard's invitation to support him in Sheffield.

In his home town of Evesham, he indulged his love for and showed his knowledge of football when he interviewed Sir Geoff Hurst for An Evening With Sir Geoff Hurst. He made a number of appearances on television from Countdown to The Daily Politics and from Football Focus to Pointless Celebrities. But the highlight came when he was asked to take part in Bake Off for Comic Relief!
