FOR one night only, Donald Trump, Harry Redknapp and Alan Carr will be among the stars coming to the Shelley Theatre tomorrow.

Not the real people of course, but top comedian Luke Kempner’s impersonation’s come pretty darn close.

Luke is one of the fastest rising stars on the stand-up circuit and best known for his TV appearances on Celebrity Big Brother’s Bit On The Side, Murder In Successville and his popular YouTube videos.

His latest tour, Take A Long Hard Luke At Yourself, will see him examining how he spends his life pretending to be other people.

Luke told The Guide: “The live show is a mix of stand up and impressions. This tour is more about how I became an impressionist and how in a way we’re all sort of impressionists.”

Football obsessed Luke is also bringing a few familiar local voices to the stage including Sandbanks resident and former Cherries boss Harry Redknapp and current Cherries manager Eddie Howe.

“Harry is great to impersonate, as he’s got so many sayings “what a player” or “terrific”. I love Harry Redknapp, he gives more than most managers do in every interview he does. You don’t get a stock answer with Harry,” Luke adds.

However, the current AFC Bournemouth manager is a different story. “Eddie Howe is not as easy to do. His voice isn’t that far away from mine, but it does have that bit more of a gruff to it these days. He’s quite reserved, but I like him and seems like he’s a really nice guy.”

Good comedians are hard to find, but impressionists that make the grade are even rarer. Fresh from an acclaimed run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, you’re likely to see Luke starring in a host of future TV projects.

He is currently the resident comedian on Celebrity Big Brother’s Bit On The Side, for which he has filmed three series and you’ve probably already seen his many talents and voices on TV shows such as The Tracey Ullman Show (BBC1), Episodes (BBC2), Murder In Successville (BBC3) and Newzoids (ITV1) among a host of others. Not to mention being a regular on Radio 4’s The Now Show.

“It’s always good fun, because most of the time people just like someone doing an impression of them and it makes them feel quite special. Especially when they’re Big Brother housemates.

Luke added: “Every impression I do should always be able to be done in front of them. I’ve done Andy Murray for years and I know that he’s seen videos of me doing it and has never had a problem with it. Russell Brand is another who I’ve actually met and thinks it’s brilliant. I call myself ‘tea-time Kempner,’ as its nice positive fun.”

Luke started his career in musical theatre, playing Marius in Les Misérables as well as taking roles in Avenue Q and South Pacific. A graduate from The Guildford School of Acting, he also plays the piano, is a puppeteer and classically trained singer.

It was during his acting days that Luke first met West End performer Earl Carpenter, who is bringing Luke’s show to the Shelley Theatre in conjunction with Ginger Boy Productions.

Luke first shot to global attention in 2012 with his hit viral video, Downstairs At Downton. Since then, his career has gone from strength to strength. Now he is on a journey to discover his real self.

“It’s about my life, but there’s also lots of sketches. Like Bear Grylls The Island, where I have David Attenborough, Louis Theroux and Andy Murray all there. I also do a Broadchurch sketch where Frankie Boyle is the grief counsellor.

“It’s silly sketches, as well as some heart about my life and how I came to be where I am. I also teach someone how to become Donald Trump and who wouldn’t want to see that!”

So join Luke on his journey to find out who he really is. Will it be Andy Murray? Will it be Donald Trump or will it be his own father! You’ll have to go along to the Shelley Theatre on Saturday to find out.
