Ben Chisholm: Don't Tell Mum

Do you have one of those annoying friends whose attempts to impersonate a famous comedian or superstar fail? Then I highly recommend taking that friend to see Ben Chisholm’s Don’t Tell Mum! Chisholm is one of the finest impressionists around today, taking the piss out of some of Hollywood ’s biggest celebrities and more than a few of our home-grown heroes as well. In one show you can see him mimic the comedy stylings of people like Eddie Murphy, Chris Rock, and Dave Hughes alongside musical pieces by performers such as Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra.

Chisholm cleverly intertwines the celebrities we love (and loathe) into situations that they would never find themselves in, to hilarious effect. Thanks to this fact, Don’t Tell Mum is a gut-busting, knee-slapping experience that will have you tapping your toes and holding your sides. With audience interaction welcome through the show, this is definitely a show for those who like to join in the action.

Playing at the stately Elephant and Wheelbarrow on Bourke Street, Chisholm’s show is an experience no fan of impressions should miss. Not the usual show you would expect to see at this year’s Comedy Festival, but definitely worth a look.
