NEWS: Award-winning impressionist Jess Robinson plays Glasgow’s Òran Mór

Multi-award winner and one of 2017’s Britain’s Got Talent semi finalists Jess Robinson embarks on her debut UK tour in March. The show, ‘Here Come The Girls’, features celebrity impressions and vocal gymnastics. Following four highly acclaimed sell-out years at The Edinburgh Festival, the tour takes in 28 dates starting at Glasgow’s Òran Mór on 1st March and culminating on 29th April at Birmingham’s Glee.

Spend an evening with Jess and the many female voices queuing up in her head, as she channels celebrities and singers to navigate her way through life’s highs and lows. Like a wonderfully malfunctioning jukebox, Jess and her incredible vocals take you on a dizzying journey through hilarious musical mash-ups – serving up a feast of styles and genres from Billie Holiday and Judy Garland to Sia, Beyoncé and Kate Bush.

 

Expect some old favourites, fresh impressions, duets with dead celebs and divas as you’re never heard them before. Whether your cup of tea is watching Shirley Bassey belt or if you want to see Jess strut her stuff with Nicki Minaj, there’ll be something for everyone, from 9 to 90.

A classically trained singer, Jess has appeared on both stage and screen.  She is versatile in all music styles and began impersonating professionally when she played the title role of ‘Little Voice’, that she recently reprised on a national tour with Beverly Callard, Ray Quinn and Joe McGann. The production was directed by the play’s author, Jim Cartwright. Jess has showcased her impressions (including presenter Alex Jones) live on The One Show and recently appeared on The Last Leg (CH4).  Other TV and Radio credits include: The Now Show (BBCR4), Mr Muzak (BBCR4), 15 Minute Musical (BBCR4), Newzoids ITV1, The Impressions Show BBC1, Rich Hall’s Election Breakdown BBC Radio 4, Murder in Successville BBC3, Dead Ringers BBC, The Dog Ate My Homework CBBC, Horrible Histories (voices) CBBC. She is set to star in a panel show for ITV called ‘The Imitation Game’ alongside Rory Bremner, Debra Stephenson & Alexander Armstrong.
