Impressionist and comedian Rory Bremner will be the keynote speaker at a high profile dinner for accountants.

Well known for his political satire and with the EU referendum around the corner, Bremner will have plenty of material to entertain finance directors and accountants at the ICAEW West of England Annual Dinner in Bristol on Thursday 21 April.

The event is being sponsored by Thrings and Brunel Professional Risks.

Bremner had his own long running TV show and was a regular contributor to TV and radio on shows such as Mock the Week and Whose Line is it Anyway.

He still appears as a regular guest on BBC’s Andrew Marr Show. He made his theatrical debut in Bath in 2013 in a revival of Noel Coward’s Relative Values, directed by Sir Trevor Nunn.

In 2015, he returned to TV comedy with two political satire programmes on BBC Two, “Rory Bremner’s Coalition Report”, and in June he parodied the 2015 election with his ‘Election Report’.

Rick Sturge, President of ICAEW West of England, comments: “It is fitting, given the current hot political issues, that Rory will be our guest for the evening.

“We are looking forward to a highly entertaining evening that will hopefully involve a few of his best known political impressions.”
