Christmas is a good time of year for TV impressionists – they tend to get their own Christmas specials, while also popping up to do their stuff on end-of-year panel shows.
UK impressionist Jon Culshaw is trying something new this year, though. He’s launched an Advent Calendar app for iPhone and iPad. “Each day reveals a witty festive tale, from Jon’s hilarious & diverse impressionist repertoire of characters that you all know and love,” promises the blurb.
They include Lord Alan Sugar, Boris Johnson, Gok Wan, Fabio Capello and Simon Cowell, apparently. Until Apple finds a way to deliver physical chocolate via in-app payments, we’ll remain slightly sceptical about the idea of iOS advent calendars. But at least this one promises to raise a smile.
