Gandalf takes you through the 10 stages of quarantine.
Charlie Hopkinson is a comedic impressionist, impersonator, voice guy, whatever you want to call it who specialises in voices from current television shows and films. His standup is a character act about a retired maths teacher, his standup set includes impressions of Sir David Attenborough, Robin Williams, Morgan Freeman, Liam Neeson, Peaky Blinders, Tommy and Arthur Shelby and Gandalf from Lord of the Rings.
Always looking to update my roster I look to try out subscriber suggested impressions in the impressions challenge series before honing the best ones. Recently I have added Peaky Blinders and Marvel / Avengers characters to my arsenal!
I currently run a number of series including:
Impression Reels - The very best impressions I can do, Including LOTR, Harry Potter, Star Wars, Peaky Blinders, Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, Cartoons .etc
Impression Challenges - Trying out new impressions in a less polished form.
Impression Dramatic song covers - Voices of Reason.
Low Budget Animation - Stickman sketch remakes of Iconic Tv shows and movies.
How to do Impressions - An audience lead tutorial series where I attempt to pass on my Impressions knowledge.
Dubs - Comedic dubs of iconic scenes with new dialogue, (My Peaky Blinders and Lord of The Rings dubs have grossed over 6 million views on Facebook)
Standup - Clips from Standup sets I have performed over the last year.
Comedy Sketches - Comedy Sketches
I started learning impressions in 2012, at the age of 20. You can follow my full impressions journey in my new ‘How to do impressions’ tutorial series
After graduating from the University of Warwick in the summer 2013 he took 4 months out to concentrate on SEworld videos full time, including producing his most viewed video to date ‘Morgan Freeman and 40 other impressions’ with just over 12 million views. This foray into being a ‘full time SEworldr’ was cut short as he went travelling for 3 months before starting a 2 year teaching Graduate scheme with Charity ‘Teach First’.
While teaching he has performed in and narrated the 4 episode series ‘Lookalikes’ as Morgan Freeman. The show and the narration received a positive reception. The show aired on Channel 4 during the prime time slot of Friday 10pm for three weeks. It is now currently available on Netflix. Charlie also performed with other well known impressionists for an unaired pilot.
Charlie has worked for several prominent brands in relation to their products, including google and formula 1.
Since the summer of 2016 Charlie has once again dived into the world of SEworld, for the first time producing content on a weekly basis. He is also focusing on live performance; he has performed in live venues a total of 3 times to date.
His top impressions include:
Morgan Freeman (Red -Shawshank redemption)
Sir Ian McKellen (Gandalf - Lord of the Rings)
Aaron Paul (Jesse Pinkman - Breaking Bad)
Alan Rickman (Snape - Harry Potter)
Michael Caine (Alfred - Batman)
Jon Snow (Game of Thrones)
Jack Sparrow (Pirates of the Carribean)
Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained, Inglorious bastards)
Alec Guiness (Ben Kenobi - Star Wars)
Agent Smith (The Matrix)
Sean Bean (Boromir - Lord of the Rings)
Richard Armitage (Thorin Oakenshield - The Hobbit)
Charles Dance (Tywin Lannister - Game of Thrones)
Tyrion Lannister (Game of Thrones)
Bryan Cranston (Walter White - Breaking Bad)
Frank Underwood (House of Cards)
Tommy Shelby (Peaky Blinders)

  • "I cannot do this Sam." "I know. I know. It's all wrong. By rights we shouldn't even be in this quarantine. But we are. It's like in the great stories Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were, and sometimes you didn't want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad happened? But in the end, it's only a passing thing, this sickness. Even this plague must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something. Even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folks and doctors in those stories had lots of chances of turning back only they didn't. Because they were holding on to something." "What are we holding onto Sam?" "That there is a cure for this sickness Mr. Frodo. And it's worth being quarantined for."

    • You are way too enthusiastic about treading this harmless common cold like it's the square root of Armageddon. I know personally 5 people who have had it. Guess what. NONE OF THEM ARE DEAD!!! Just grow the fuck up Bekat! All this fucking publicity is just magnifying problems to appear many times worse than they actually are and it is helping NO ONE!!! Infact it is actually doing the exact opposite of helping, because once again we are voting away a few more freedoms for the ILLUSION of security. Same thing happened after 9/11 and after Columbine, and even further back as far as the Cokeville crisis. Now I'll never say it's a good thing that this virus It is out there but being afraid of it... Look I have asthma it should kill me but it won't. 99.4% of the people who catch this thing don't even get hospitalized and only even a small fraction of that 0.6% actually die from this thing and the death rate is only decreasing even as the infection rate does the opposite. The statistics spell it out for you I don't even have to. Covid is not a death sentence.

  • As for the end, hear me out on this: you can call me a conspiracy theorist, or some reckless person who doesn’t care about the community, or whatever else you think you want to. But I’m not any of those. I refuse to wear masks and I’m proud of it, because I for one am standing up for my personal rights as an American citizen. The COVID virus has yet to kill anyone that did not already have a pre-existing life-threatening condition. In fact, the common flu kills about as many people, but no one cares about that. So why should we mask up like a bunch of cowards, hiding in our houses until we rot, watching the smaller businesses go down into the drain. The Government is trying to remove the middle class from our society, so that there will be them and the peasants (us). These mask “laws” are illegal mandates and are in every way unconstitutional. So pay attention to the facts and become American again, because if no one stands up the next thing you know America is a Communist country. We will have become the very thing we have worked so hard to destroy. We will not be compliant with these illegal restrictions, nor care when we are persecuted for speaking our own voices, our own opinions, into the world, which was something this country was founded for. We are being subdued by the Government for their own will and humor, but THIS IS AMERICA. Not only are most of these laws completely ridiculous, but they re unnecessary and if anything are having a negative effect on the Curve!. You can call me a Karen, but imma say what I know is right. This is a non-lethal virus we’re talking about. My dad had it, and he’s still fine. My mom had it, and she’s still fine. Both my best friend’s grandparents got it, and they’re still fine. So we need to stop hiding behind our useless masks and speak up for our American rights! Did you know that the COVID virus is so small, a thousand of them could link hand in hand in a chain and still walk right through the smallest little gap in your mask? They’re worse for you than the COVID is, and they do literally nothing to prevent the disease!! And some of these laws are nothing but people trying to see how far they can push our compliancy. In Ohio, the wrestling team is aloud to wrestle, but can’t shake hands because of the COVID. Let that sink in for a minute: they are aloud to hug, sweat and breathe all over eachother, grapple, and tackle each other, but aren’t aloud to show some good sportsmanship about it? Hmmmmmmm. Take a minute to think about what Ive said, because this is serious. I’m doing what I think, what I know, is right. I’m not against the public. I’m as much of a patriot as the next guy, and plan to join the military. This is for the good of our country. I’m doing what is best for the US, and the World. Stand up. Protest unjust laws. That’s what we’re supposed to do. It’s our job as American citizens to keep the Government in check. So let’s do it. Why are we letting them force us into things that 1) aren’t helping anything 2) they make no sense and 3) no one wants to do them!?! Stand up against tyranny. Keep America Great.

  • One does not simply walk into McDonald's. It's automatic doors are always shut. There are staff guarding that do not sleep, and their eyes are ever watchful of your steps. It is a desolate restauraunt, riddled with floor markings and sanitiser stations, so that the very air you breathe is covid free.

Well, the answer to it all is right in scripture: 2 Chronicles 7:14 14 “if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” People want to continue foolishly rejecting God and His Truth and live sinful lives instead. We reap what we sow, folks.
