Alistair McGowan


McGOWAN AlistairEnglish impressionist, stand up comic and WWF Ambassador Alistair McGowan will be hosting this year’s International Green Awards ceremony!


Alistair McGowan has recently finished hosting ‘You Cannot Be Serious’ on ITV – a quirky look back at the week’s sport with clips, sketches, songs and bags of McGowan’s trademark impressions. But Alistair has worked in every branch of show-business over the last 20 years. He is probably best known for his BAFTA-winning show, ‘The Big Impression’ (with Ronni Ancona) but he has also acted with the Royal Shakespeare Company and taken lead roles in West End Musicals – ‘Cabaret’ and ‘Little Shop of Horrors’ and in West End plays ‘Art’ and, most recently, alongside Dame Diana Rigg in ‘Pygmalion’. He has sung in and directed several Gilbert and Sullivan productions for Raymond Gubbay and has been a mainstay of countless Radio 4 plays and comedies from ‘Elvenquest’ to, most recently, ‘Kind Hearts and Coronets.’ He was part of the BBC’s hugely successful ‘Bleak House’ and is familiar to younger audiences from CBBC’s drama ‘Leonardo’. He made his Hollywood film debut in ‘Driving Aphrodite’ , was honoured to be featured on the hugely-popular, ‘Who Do You Think You Are’ (where he discovered his Anglo-Indian roots) and has also been seen as a stand-up comic on ‘Live At The Apollo’.
