OUR HOST WAS JON CULSHAW
The Dead Ringers star Jon Culshaw is seen by many as Britain's best impressionist. His repertoire of over 350 voices stretches from Dale Winton to Ozzy Osbourne to Michael McIntrye, Russell Crowe and (for fans of the radio show) Brian Perkins.
Originally a DJ, Jon won a Radio 1 talent contest and joined the team on Spitting Image. He played 40 characters, including Frank Bruno, Michael Portillo, Bill Clinton and Liam Gallagher. Jon then became 'the man of a thousand voices' on Channel 4's Big Breakfast.
Next came the Steve Penk Show, when Jon made international headlines by calling the switchboard at No.10 and fooling the operators with his William Hague impression. To his delight he realised that he was talking directly to the Prime Minister. The incident was duly reported in Hansard.
With an unmatched versatility, Jon is regularly called upon for a whole host of guests appearances. Jon's other TV credits include Friday Night Armistice and his own series for the BBC: The Impressionable Jon Culshaw, Jon Culshaw's Commercial Breakdown and most recently The Impressions Show with Culshaw and Stephenson. He is also a regular guest on election programmes, providing necessary comic relief with impromptu impressions of politicians and commentators.
