Are you looking for a celebrity impressionist? A full time voice over artist, I specialise in impressions and am contacted by clients all over the world – probably as it’s way too expensive to get the real person! I’ve been Jeremy Clarkson, Sir David Attenborough, Kermit, Yoda, Manuel from Fawlty Towers, Alan Sugar and many many more!
Britain’s Got Talent
In 2016, I reached the live semi finals of Britain’s Got Talent performing impressions. Simon Cowell said “Of all the years we’ve had impressionists on this show, I genuinely think this is the best and most original act we’ve had. Absolutely hilarious Darren, a million percent yes!”
Here’s the audition that got me through.
Here’s a fun video I made recently: Lots of TV personalities singing the Kylie Minogue Classic, I Should Be So Lucky!
I’ve been fortunate to study with some amazing and highly respected voice coaches, who specialise in character voices and celebrity impersonations and I use specific techniques to ensure that I get pretty darn close to the celebrity voice! As a trained musician (I’ve studied jazz at Leeds College Of Music, Trinity College Of Music and The Guildhall School Of Music And Drama) I have a unique understanding of pitch and timing and have found that my musical background really helps when studying and dissecting a voice.
Celebrity Sound Alikes
If you visit my Soundboards, you’ll hear a selection of impersonations that I can deliver, however if you don’t see the celebrity you’re looking for, that’s no problem! Please feel free to contact me and I’ll be happy to demo a celebrity and give you a custom sample so you can hear the impression, before you commit to hiring my services.
I’m passionate about delivering the very best voiceover and working with clients to ensure that they’re happy with their impression.
