Jess Robinson: Mighty Voice
Actress, impressionist, singer and voiceover artist Jess Robinson is a rising star of both stage and screen. Her recent TV credits include ITV’s satirical puppet show Newzoids; BBC3’s new comedy Murder in Successville; and Rory Bremner’s Election Report (BBC 2).
During the Edinburgh Festival 2015, Jess showcased her impressions (including presenter Alex Jones) live on The One Show. Other TV credits include – Dead Ringers, The Impressions Show, Spoof, The Slammer and Scoop! for the BBC.
A classically trained singer, Jess is versatile in all styles and began impersonating professionally when she played the title role of Little Voice, which she recently reprised on a national tour with Beverly Callard, Ray Quinn and Joe McGann. The production was directed by the play’s author Jim Cartwright.
She and Kirsty met and became firm friends when Jess joined musical comedy 3-part-harmony trio “The Segue Sisters” in 2011 for whom Kirsty was musical director and arranger. Jess turned to Kirsty when she decided to take her debut solo show “Mighty Voice” to the Edinburgh Fringe in 2014.
Together, they devised, arranged and performed the spectacular musical mash-ups, improvised “Wheels of 64 Tunes” and the musical set-pieces that set the show apart and dazzled reviewers and audiences, earning them standing ovations, five-star reviews and a Chortle Award nomination.
Kirsty and Jess performed at several comedy festivals around the country and wowed the Cabaret and Maverick Stages at the legendary Glastonbury Festival, bringing the crowd to their feet.
They returned to even more critical acclaim with the follow-up show “Jess Robinson: The Rise Of Mighty Voice” in 2015 and the show won The Amused Moose People’s Champion Award and also a Mervyn Stutter Pick Of The Fringe award.
Although they are performing separately at the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe, they remain close friends and still perform together at comedy and music festivals, cabaret shows, corporate
events, private functions, weddings and charity events.
They can tailor their set to suit any occasion and are happy to discuss any requests.
