If I do Etienne on "Champagne Comedy" (a free to air TV show in Melbourne), will that seal the wager?

You'd have to be a famous impressionist if it were to adhere to the original bet Peter.
I don't think he was talking about impressionist in the 'painting style' either Peter.

I've heard of 2 of the people you've listed jester.
Now name the famous impressionist that did the impressions.
I can't even think of a famous impressionist.

Mike Yarwood, Kenny Everett, Les Dennis... We have Alistair McGowan and John Culshaw nowadays too...

Sorry you haven't heard off all of our celebrities, but I shall make sure they have heard of you...

Peter, I wish I had thought of that one earlier... Ha ha. Nice.

I grew up watching Kenny Everret so I know of him. Ahh the memories. 'and now it's time for a break'.
Alistair McGowan rings a bell also.
Trust me, if there is a british celeb. that we haven't heard of in Australia, then they can't be that famous.

Which reminds me. Barry Humphreys.

Default Barry Humphries.

We worked with him years ago when his best trick was a bucket on his head. He was MC. This was in the Palm Lounge up on the Gold Coast. Maybe he was wearing a costume, but to us it just seemed like an ordinary man's suit. No sign of things to come.

How things have changed. Dame Edna is appearing soon on stage in our area and there's no mistaking the costume this time.
