Britain’s sharpest impressionist, Rory Bremner, will be hosting the Health Insurance Awards 2001.
Educated at Wellington College and King’s College London (BA Hons in French and German), Bremner started out on the cabaret circuit in London and Edinburgh, doing lectures by day and stand-up comedy at night.
He then graduated to the radio satire shows News Revue (LBC) and WeekEnding (BBC). He first appeared on national television on The Tube in 1984 and, after guesting on the Central TV series And There’s More, he had his own series on BBC 2 for seven years.
In 1993 he moved to Channel 4, since when his show Rory Bremner – Who Else? has won more than ten major awards. The latest series of Bremner, Bird and Fortune has just enjoyed another successful run.
The Awards take place at London’s Hilton Hotel on 25 October. There are ten provider categories, sponsored by Mediquote, and a new award – Personality of the Year, sponsored by Allianz Worldwide Care.
This year there are 11 categories for intermediaries, sponsored by BCWA, Bupa, Bupa International, Friends Provident, Norwich Union, PPP lifetime care, PPP healthcare, Royal & SunAlliance, Scottish Equitable Protect and Standard Life Healthcare.
The names of intermediaries shortlisted for the Awards will be announced in the October issue of Health Insurance.
