Alistair McGowan is an impressionist, actor, writer of jokes, plays and sketches, stand-up comedian and, latterly, pianist.
His early career on Spitting Image and The Big Impression, two of TV’s most popular shows, made him a household name. An inspired and inspiring entertainer, Alistair is in demand for theatre touring, voice-overs and corporate engagements. Adding to his well-known stand-up, Alistair recently toured three shows, An Evening Shared with Jasper Carrott & Alistair McGowan, The Piano Show and Radio Live (next on at the Chichester Festival Theatre, 20 Jan. 2024).
At the age of 49, Alistair went back to the piano (having reached Grade 2 as a nine-year old), achieving a No. 1 Sony album that grew into successful live concerts with a difference. The Piano Show, 13 short pieces interspersed with Alistair’s trademark impressions, is ‘the classical concert you’ve always wanted to see’. His second piano album was released last year.
