Alistair McGowan is an impressionist, actor, writer of jokes, plays and sketches, stand-up comedian and, latterly, pianist. In addition to his well-known stand-up, he is currently touring with three shows.
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. This year he has toured three shows, An Evening Shared with Jasper Carrott & Alistair McGowan, Radio Live, and The Piano Show.
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 has just been released.
