So pretty sure I didn't dream this, but can't find any evidence of it online anywhere.

We're talking 90s or early 00's and if I remember correctly it was a piss take of Michael Winner.

Michael Winner would be sat in a restaurant. He'd be Name-dropping mainly. And he used to say "I'm Michael winner, I've directed x films etc etc" to anyone who would listen.

Can't remeber who did it or what show it was on or anything. Anyone help me out?

Google and YouTube drawing a blank.

It rings a bell.
Are you sure it wasn't an advertisement?

Is this it?

I can't think of what else it could be because if there was a parody of him it would be easy to find on IMDB. Maybe it was one of his restaurant shows and you fell asleep while he was chatting to other patrons :D

I liked Michael Winner because he was an honest chap and didn't take himself too seriously.

I feel like Vic and Bob did something like that once.
