52 impressions in five minutes: latest from the Edinburgh Fringe
52 impressions in five minutes: latest from the Edinburgh Fringe

"Anil Desai is an impressionist who performs the record breaking (literally) feat of doing 52 impressions in five minutes! The compere goes through a deck of cards, upon each a celebrity or character is written.

From A-list film stars to cartoon characters, there is a vast range. There are a few impressions I would say were a bit off, merely quoting the character's famous catchphrase but I would say that around 80% were spot on and the sheer speed of the show made it all the more impressive.

Certainly unique and great for corporate market. With time (and slightly more money) selected staff members from clients company could be included in pack, with Anil doing an impression of them."
