“Robinson’s performance was perfection. Incredible… Inspiring… Impressive” ARTS AWARD VOICE
“It’s hard to envisage a world in which Jess Robinson will not be a star” CHORTLE
Jess returned from performing her latest show ‘Impressive’, at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival, with her incredible live band, some amazing reviews and another award under her belt…
“Naturally funny Jess Robinson serves up a remarkable range of impressions - from Lily Allen to Billie Holiday to Barbra Streisand, all pitch-perfect” TELEGRAPH
‘Impressive’ features well OVER 100 impressions, 99 of which are packed into 4 minute rap – ‘I got 99 voices but a bloke ain’t one’. As well as the Kim Kardashians, Nicola Sturgeons and Mary Berrys, Jess treats you to spot on singing impressions; from classic vintage stars, such as Judy Garland and an astoundingly uncanny Billie Holiday, to today’s global pop divas, including Beyoncé, Paloma Faith and Nicki Minaj – travelling via, Kate Bush and a spine-tingling Amy Winehouse.
“A star is born. The vocal gymnastics reach a crescendo with a show-stopper as breathless for Robinson as it is breathtaking for us.” METRO
“A stunning voice, is an incredibly talented impersonator and mixes this with a cheeky wry personality that makes you want to pop her in your pocket and take her home for tea.” EDINBURGH EVENING NEWS
With her fresh take on mimicry, cheeky wit and sharp stand up, Jess shares her hilariously tragic and heartbreakingly funny adventures during her whirlwind of a year, since leaving her spouse of just 18 months following last year’s Edinburgh festival. From joining a gang, to joining the circus, to nearly causing a plane to make an unscheduled landing.
“Jess Robinson sings her way through the story of her divorce, embodying over 100 popular voices in her latest show, Impressive. Starting with a song that includes ninety- nine impressions, from Kate Bush to Julie Andrews, we are left wondering how she could possibly top it.
Robinson exceeds expectations, managing to perfectly impersonate both the mannerisms and voices of so many well known women. She delivers side-splitting comedy, mesmerising storytelling, sensational music and a good helping of improv. If you’ve ever wondered what a reggae Alanis Morissette would sound like, Robinson will show you. She is a character all on her own whose fast-paced approach entertains the audience from beginning to end.
No matter what your tastes this fringe, the tremendously talented Jess Robinson will entertain them all and leave you feeling truly impressed.”
“Robinson’s talent is stunning… a stand out act.” EDINBURGH REVIEWS
So party with Jess, her awesome band and a truckload of celebrities as Robinson celebrates her newfound freedom since divorcing ‘Practice Husband’. But now she has her freedom, what should she do with it?
