Jon Culshaw



Jon Culshaw is warmly regarded by many as Britain's best impressionist.
With a catalogue of over 350 characters ranging from Boris Johnson to Professor Brian Cox, from Barack Obama to Alan Carr and from John Bishop to Michael McIntyre.
His TV credits include Spitting Image, Dead Ringers, Newzoids, Jon Culshaw's Commercial Breakdown and The Impressions Show on BBC1, teamed up with Debra Stephenson.
With an unmatched versatility, Jon is regularly called upon to make guest appearances. Credits include Parkinson, The Royal Variety Performance,  We are Most Amused, The Secret Policeman's Ball, Friday Night with Jonathan Ross, Who Wants to be a Millionaire and Stargazing Live.
Jon first hit the international headlines in 1998 when he called the switchboard of No10 Downing Street and fooled the operators with his William Hague impression and was put directly through to the then Prime Minister Tony Blair. The incident was mentioned at Prime Minister's Question Time and reported in Hansard.
Jon is a regular guest on election programmes, providing the necessary comic relief with impromptu impersonations of politicians and commentators.
Jon joined the world's longest running programme 'The Sky at Night',  appearing with the late Sir Patrick Moore on the show's 50th anniversary programme in April 2007.  As a lifelong enthusiast of astronomy Jon's role on 'The Sky at Night' was to ask the scientists the kind of questions that the viewers might have, which he described this as 'Simply the best job on Earth.' 

"Jon Culshaw was absolutely fantastic, everybody loved him. He was so funny, a delight to talk to and the audience didn't want him to stop. Well worth the fee, please pass on our thanks!"  Jon's after dinner speech at the CBI South West Annual Dinner
