To celebrate Selby Abbey’s 950th anniversary, the Town Hall will host an evening of comedy in the Abbey itself, headlined by the UK’s top satirical impersonator, Rory Bremner.
As a mimic, Rory has provided definitive impersonations of PMs and presidents from Major to Mandela, Blair to Brown, Clinton to Cameron and Bush to Trump. As himself, he’s been presenter, writer, quiz-show host, actor, translator and even (briefly) ballroom dancer.
His 30-year TV career includes three BAFTAs for the long-running Channel 4 series Bremner, Bird & Fortune, while he’s also written and starred in satirical specials covering four elections, the Blair government, the Iraq War, the Scottish referendum and the coalition government, retraced his family history for Who Do You Think You Are and appeared on every panel show worth its salt.
This will be a completely one-off show featuring Rory alongside two special guest comedians.
