Impressionist Josh Berry mocked Iain Stirling’s excitable Love Island commentary when he appeared at Chortle’s London Fast Fringe last month.

The mimic also offered his take on Louis Theroux’s documentaries, showed how he thought Daniel Radcliffe’s voice might help him with the ladies, and impersonated tennis players Andy Murray and John McEnroe .

You can watch extracts from a dozen comedy and variety shows every day at our Fast Fringe showcase in Edinburgh. It's on at 18:40 daily in Pleasance Dome. Tickets.
