A truly talented mimic, Desai has astounded audiences worldwide with his record breaking 52 impressions in 5 minutes!

A veteran of a decade of Edinburgh Fringe Festival's, British comic and master impressionist Anil Desai graces our shores for the first time ever this year.

Desai's current show "Hey, Impressions Guy!" garnered rave reviews in Edinburgh. He went on to tour India and Australia where he appeared on Hey Hey It's Saturday! With jaw dropping ease, Desai slips from De Niro, to Johnny Depp, Nelson Mandela to Homer Simpson, and he leaves his audiences in hysterics.

As a comedian Desai began his career starring in the Award winning BBC sketch show series Goodness Gracious Me. He followed this by creating his own comedy sketch group The Giant Pineapple Boys, performing in London and Edinburgh Festivals. He also co-hosted on the ever popular live late show Spank! When Anil began standup comedy in 2005 he created comedy characters Rajesh – Bollywood Lounge singer & Candice the Fluffer Girl. Desai is one of the few acts that can cross the genre divide performing continually on the comedy, cabaret, variety and burlesque circuits.

* The List

"It's not just clever, but utterly hilarious...one to watch"

Edinburgh Evening News

"A Tour-de-force of impressions...side-splittingly funny... Desai is ridiculously talented...Stardom is beckoning"

* Edinburgh Guide

"A possessed schizophrenic tour-de-force...more than an impressionist, combining typical observational stand up with voices making him a force to be reckoned with...a highly entertaining and worthwhile night out..."
