Impressionist and actress who was placed second in the 2009 Funny Women awards
Eve Webster at the 2009 Funny Women final
Eve Webster is an impressionist with a definite knack for voices, which is the least you can expect from the job description.
As with most exponents of the genre, there’s a chuckle of recognition for each accurate impersonation that’s recognised – but equally no ambition in writing beyond ‘imagine if Ann Widdecombe were on the X-Factor’ or ‘Mrs Thatcher (topical!) on Loose Women.
Her repertoire includes Joanna Lumley, Charlotte Church and Barbara Windsor, and she’s not going to let the fact she has no reason to launch into any of the voices stop her from doing so.
Such old-fashioned shtick didn’t interest me in the least, but the volume of the ovation at the end of her routine is proof that she’s a clear audience favourite.
