Mock with the best - Irish impressionist shows you how

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

ANOTHER WEEK, ANOTHER talented Irish comedian in Simon Cowell’s You Generation competition.

This week the virtual talent competition is on the hunt for a world-class impressionist – and to show entrants exactly what they were looking for, they called upon break out online impressionist, Irishman Seán Burke.

Burke achieved almost instant viral fame last year after uploading his video of Family Guy impressions. The video has now reached almost 700,000 views and even led to a stint performing as continuity on TV station 3e.


If that’s whetted your appetite for impressions, check out Seán’s tutorial video below featuring Alphacat, the impersonator who has reached hundreds of millions of views on YouTube for his Obama parodies.


The rules are simple: your entry video must be under the 2 minute mark, must include a Gollum impression and the word “cat” in honour of Alphacat.

Entries close this Saturday the 8th of June, so get impersonating!
