Luke Kempner has quickly established himself as the UK’s hottest new impressionist for the millennial comedy generation with his contemporary take on pop culture mimicry, amassing over 3 million views online, through his viral sketch videos ‘Alternative Love Island’ and ‘Alternative Game of Thrones.’ Luke is part of the new Spitting Image cast, which can be seen on BritBox.
2021 has already seen Luke make appearances on The Last Leg (Channel4) and ITV2’s Stand-Up Sketch Show and Love Island Aftersun. This follows a busy 2020 for Luke, where he appeared on It Takes Two (BBC2), Celebrity Karaoke Club (ITV2), and became a regular contributor/presenter on Steph’s Packed Lunch (Channel4)
Combining razor sharp stand-up with incisively accurate imitations of international hit box-set binge characters, TV celebrities, social media superstars, fellow comedians, notorious politicians and famous sports names, Luke is also familiar to television audiences with his regular appearances in the BAFTA winning Murder in Successville (BBC3), and as the breakout star of The Imitation Game on ITV1, which led to an appearance on The Royal Variety Performance (ITV1).
His other credits include Celebability, Hey Tracey (ITV2), Pointless Celebrities (BBC1). Luke created and starred in his own review show for ITV2, entitled Luke Kempner’s Impression of 2015 and was the resident comedian on Celebrity Big Brother’s Bit On The Side (Channel 5) for 9 series. He is also a regular on BBC Radio 4’s topical comedy institutions The Now Show and News Jack.
His last show at the Edinburgh Fringe was for the sold out run of House Of Faces, which then toured nationwide throughout 2019.
