More Information about The Great British Take Off

The Great British Take Off with Jon Culshaw and Bill Dare Comedian and impressionist Jon Culshaw and legendary comedy producer Bill Dare come to Leicester Square Theatre for the first time following their sell-out tour last year. Join us for an evening of unscripted, unrehearsed, spontaneous comedy and conversation as politicians, sports personalities and celebrities old and new are all up for a roasting. You, the audience, help choose which characters appear and what direction the show takes. Jon reveals the secrets of mimicry, and shares stories of some of the fascinating characters that coloured his childhood in Lancashire and his early career. Together with Bill he also reveals some of the mishaps and mayhem of life behind the scenes in television and on the celebrity circuit. With a few surprises for the general public of London thrown in for good measure, The Great British Take Off is topical, satirical, anecdotal and highly entertaining; it's never the same show twice.

What people are saying about The Great British Take Off

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Side-splittingly funny and very clever! Jon is the most talented impersonator since Mike Yarwood, who he mentioned and admires. He covered dozens of characters, many of them suggested by the audience and wasn’t caught out once. One of the best shows I’ve ever seen!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beat this impresion-fest if you can! Award Winning TV & Radio impressionist Jon Culshaw is currently on a compact, 6- date tour of the UK. Armed with his trusty long-term producer and friend Bill Dare by his side, (Spitting Image/Dead Ringers) who appears throughout on stage as the most laid back interviewer since Parkinson talked to David Attenborough, Bill acts as host, interviewer, prompt and I'm sure if need be, emergency psychiatrist to Jon's chronologcal review of his life in comedy. Whether it be at Jon's Ormskirk's local primary school or on location for Dead Ringers or The Impressioinist Show with Culshaw & Stephenson when dressed as Doctor Who in a shopping centre car park, through the stained-glass windowed portal of Jon's comedy impressions this great evening captures in its appreciative applause. Tonight the pride of the market town; its history; its people and their pride in Jon was clear for all to see. "THE" home-grown celebrity who cut his teeth in the am-dram opprtunities in the civic hall around 40 years ago is inspirational for all those before him. This is particularly relevant as this event is a special one for Jon bravely returning to his hometown to perform infront of people who, in this packed house of 400 attendees in the Ormskirk Civic Centre, he went to school, college, worked in hospital radio and raised a glass or two with over the years. These shows are a try-out for a possible forthcoming tour of the UK later into 2017 - 18. At The Civic, Bill created a professionally controlled environment for this unique experience especially with the presumably difference in audience reation dynamics from the previous few non-partisan shows. Jon is not just a superb impressionist at the top of his game but, due to his radio broadcasting roots, a skilled communicator and where better than to see this for yourself in this 2 hour fun show. It maybe too late for you to see for yourself on this bite-sized try-out tour, but make dates in your diaries for the full tour when announced later in the year. Like these performances, after that tour all performances will be 'partisan' as Jon takes all his audience into their hearts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very entertaining and funny I went to the Great British Bake Off and my husband and I really enjoyed it. I was crying laughing especially the story about Jon ringing Tony Blair. His pizza ordering was very funny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing night at a local venue Great night with the incredibly talented Jon Culshaw. So many laughs. A very entertaining format. And not being ripped off with extortionate ticket prices just added to the experience. Highly recommend this show

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Local boy makes good! Bought the tickets at a weeks notice. Surprised a local venue used a ticket booking service. (I hate paying booking fees) great to have a 'big name' like Jon Culshaw, playing at Ormskirk, even if he is a local boy. Smashing night out! Great to see the Civic hall being used. Seating poor, but not sure what could be done to make improvements as its all on the flat. Walked home after the show via local bars and restaurants, happily spending my money in local businesses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a unique evening of talent I was really looking forward to this evening having been in the same Amateur Dramatics club with Jonathan many many years ago. I have followed his career with interest and with awe in his talent. He did not disappoint. The show was unique and entertaining and I have not laughed so much in along time.
