One of the nation’s favourite comedians and impressionists Rory Bremner has teamed up with the ECB to front a comedy festival campaign which has seen a host of comedians visit Friends Life t20 games across the country – Rory Bremner’s ‘Stand Up for Friends Life t20′ tour.
The tour kicked off on Friday June 22 and will culminate with a special performance from Bremner on Finals Day at the SWALEC Stadium in Cardiff on August 25.
Having already got David Lloyd and Geoffrey Boycott down to a tee, the final video of the campaign sees Rory impersonate a variety of names including David Gower, Henry Blofeld, Tony Blair and Stephen Fry.
The comedy tour spearheads a wider marketing campaign by the ECB entitled ‘Something Completely Different’ which sees the Friends Life t20 competition being promoted in a fun, fresh and exciting way to bring even more fans to the competition – which celebrates its 10th anniversary this year.
“Twenty20 cricket has been one of the games great success stories in the last few years and I can’t wait to host the Friends Life t20 Finals Day, interact with the fans and showcase some of my cricketing impressions,” says Bremner. “Finals Day is a great day out for cricket fans, sport fans, groups and families alike and I can’t wait to be involved later this month.”
