Free tickets now available for The Imitation Game

The Imitation Game is a hilarious new comedy panel show for ITV based round impersonations. It is hosted by Alexander Armstrong and stars Rory Bremner and Debra Stephenson.

The show will feature a host of the UK’s leading impressionists, each exchanging their amazing celebrity impressions in a series of uproarious games and musical numbers. Could this be your chance to see Donald Trump crossing swords with Holly Willoughby, Boris Johnson dueting with Adele, or Mary Berry chatting up Russell Brand?

I was at the pilot of The Imitation Game last summer, and really enjoyed it. Definitely worth an evening out. It'll be recorded over a number of evenings in March at Television Centre, White City, West London. You can apply for free tickets here.
