Impressionist and satirist who first came to public attention in 1985 when he had a novelty hit single, "N-N-Nineteen (Not Out)" under the name The Commentators (produced by John Sachs, pop triv fans!). The following year he was chosen to front the BBC comedy show Now, Something Else (which also provided Jeremy Hardy with his first big TV break) and he kept up a constant presence on our screens for over 20 years, most famously in Channel 4's Bremner, Bird and Fortune. Nowadays he's more likely to be found on Radio 4, where he has hosted the hybrid stand up / discussion shows Tonight with Rory Bremner and Rory Bremner's One Question Quiz (which isn't a quiz).


He was offered the role of Countdown host in 2008 after Des O'Connor announced his departure from the show, but turned it down.

Once played Chris Tarrant in a 2023 revival of Quiz, the James Graham drama about The Ingrams Millionaire Trial.
