Jon Culshaw is widely regarded by many as Britain’s best impressionist with an unmatched versatility and a catalogue of over 350 voices and impersonations, including Boris Johnson, Donald Trump, Professor Brian Cox, Nigel Farage, Alan Carr, John Bishop, Ozzy Osborne, Chris Eubank, Michael McIntyre and Prince Charles amongst many others. Jon first made international headlines in 1998 by calling the switchboard of No. 10 Downing Street and fooling the operators with his uncanny impression of William Hague, and as a result was put directly through to Prime Minister Tony Blair. The incident was mentioned at Prime Minister’s Question Time and reported across the national press and in Hansard.
Notable credits include Spitting Image, Dead Ringers, The Impressionable Jon Culshaw, Newzoids, Spamalot, The Sky at Night, Jon Culshaw’s Commercial Breakdown, Headcases, The Now Show, The Secret World, and, The Final Take: Bowie in the Studio, to name just a few, as well as appearances on countless programmes over the years.
Following a sold out debut tour, 2019 & 2020 saw Jon embark on his second and third UK tour of The Great British Take Off alongside Dead Ringers producer Bill Dare. The conversational show sees the pair perform unscripted, unrehearsed spontaneous comedy as politicians, sports personalities and celebrities old and new. When not performing on screen or on the airwaves Jon can often be found delighting audiences with his hugely popular after dinner entertainment and is a staple of the corporate and events landscape, having performed to rave reviews for many years in his role as awards host, after-dinner comedian and impressionist .
