The Impressions Show With Culshaw & Stephenson
Impression show starring Jon Culshaw and Debra Stephenson. Their targets include Jonathan Ross, Amy Winehouse and Madonna
Jon Culshaw, star of Dead Ringers and one of Britain's top impressionists, and Debra Stephenson, best known for her roles in Coronation Street and Bad Girls, but originally an impressionist and stand-up comedian before that, portray a host of well-known stars as you've never seen them before.
Our Review: After a very promising first episode - with almost universal praise for both the writing and performances - reception of the show then went drastically downhill. We really enjoyed that first episode, but by just the third we were struggling to tune in at all. Weak jokes repeated, impressions that appeared ropier every time they were wheeled out, and writing that generally gave the impression they just couldn't be bothered. To say that we were mightily surprised to see the show recommissioned would be an understatement.
