Impressionist Alistair McGowan will return to his stand-up roots when he performs a new two-hour show at The Castle theatre in Wellingborough next week.

In the show, Alistair will be asking big questions like, ‘Would the world be a happier place if Ed Miliband was Prime Minister?’ ‘What are we really thinking while watching Shakespeare?’ and ‘Is Hilary Devey Jessie J’s mum?’

Audiences will hear the imitated tones of everyone from Andy Murray to Colin Murray, as well as riffs on everything from Jeff Stelling to bad spelling.

Although best known for the BAFTA winning The Big Impression, Alistair McGowan is also a highly-acclaimed actor whose theatre work includes Little Shop Of Horrors, Merry Wives: The Musical (RSC), Measure For Measure and Cabaret. His high-profile television appearances include shows such as Bleak House, Mayo, Who Do You Think You Are? and Have I Got News For You.

The show, Alistair McGowan - Not Just A Pretty Voice will be performed on Thursday, September 19 at 8pm. Tickets cost £15 and are available by calling the box office on 01933 270007 or visiting the theatre’s website on www.
