Rory Bremner's Election BattlebusAs Britain prepares to make the ghastly choice between the dour Gordon Brown and the airy-fairy David Cameron, the country's top satirical impressionist takes to the road for his first stand-up tour in five years. Rory Bremner's Election Battlebus Tour will call at all the major towns and cities on the campaign trail as the 6th May polling day draws ever nearer. And with both party leaders, along with some guy called Nick Clegg, drawing their swords in some live televised debates ahead of the election, expect some savage lampooning from one of Britain's comedic institutions. Bremner has been in the political satire game for over 20 years now and this tour should provide the perfect antidote for what could be a long and painfully drawn out affair. Interestingly, Bremner was banned by Labour from travelling as an accredited Telegraph journalist on its election bus ahead of the last general election due to his neurotic impression of Tony Blair. Now the "one-man opposition party" has a fresh chance to give his own unique take on the principal protagonists vying for the keys to No.10. Tonight's performance at the Richmond Theatre is one of only two performances on the Tour which includes cameos from The Two Johns, John Bird and John Fortune.

Rory Bremner's Battlebus Tour will also call in at the Greenwich Theatre on 27th April.

 

About Richmond Theatre

The Victorian Richmond Theatre, which opened on 18 September 1899 with a performance of As You Like It, is one of the best examples of work by theatrical architect Frank Matcham. The interior is ornate, with lots of gilt detailing and plush fabrics. More about Richmond Theatre
