Rory Bremner announced as presenter for Wasps End Of Season Awards

Date: 5 Mar 2020

Comedian Rory Bremner will be hosting Wasps’ annual End Of Season Awards on Saturday 23 May!

The famous impersonator will be joined by the Wasps first-team players, coaches and staff in what will no doubt be a night to remember at Ricoh Arena.

Bremner first came into the limelight with The Commentators’ single N-N-Nineteen Not Out in 1985 which became a hit in the British music charts – with Bremner impersonating cricket commentators including Richie Benaud and Brian Johnston.

He contributed to TV shows And There's More, Spitting Image, and Week Ending, and by 1987 he had his own BBC 2 show, Now – Something Else. He later moved to Channel 4 with Rory Bremner, Who Else? and soon teamed up with veterans John Bird and John Fortune to host Bremner, Bird and Fortune, with both shows winning numerous awards.

In the 1990s, The Scotsman featured on the Channel 4 improvisation show Whose Line Is It Anyway? and in 2005 he was a team captain on the BBC Two show Mock The Week.

He also took part in the 2011 series of Strictly Come Dancing, before hosting Channel 4 quiz show, Face the Clock and more recently was a team captain on ITV comedy game show The Imitation Game.

Wasps Head of Commercial James Wootton said: “We’re thrilled to be bringing Rory to host our End Of Season Awards. As we know, he’s a really well-known character who will no doubt have the audience in stitches!

“It’s the first time we will have had the awards on a Saturday and having someone of Rory’s calibre hosting the event is really exciting and we hope many of our fans will join us to celebrate the season.”

Tickets start from £156 (inclusive of VAT). There are also opportunities still available to dine with players on a Gold Table, while some awards are still available to sponsor. Contact the Commercial Sales team on 02476 786410 or email for more information.
