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)

    • @Flannery Red I have to agree I was saying to my dad the other night that sending millions of people to their deaths in two world war's and many other's is the worst sickness of humankind and many other ailments we acrue as children bear upon us eventually, I like your comment made me think 👍I know a few autistic kid's and inveriably the parent's were drug user's either that or the kid's were ok and they played the system either way its abhorrent.

    • I dont know if YOU have heard this, but weve actually NEVER had a "Pandemic". Weve never even come close to the number of people sick for it to be considered even an "epidemic"! Now, if you wanna talk REAL "Pandemic" numbers, all you need do is check out the number of children born with autism now! THAT is a "Pandemic"! But, I guess were all okay with walking around with masks on PRETENDING there is some sort of health crises.

Suggestion for another Morgan Freeman gig (and forgive me, do, if these reveals too much of my own politics): M.F. leading the Impeachment hearings (part ii) in the U.S. Senate of Donald. J. Trump. Thanks for being the best thing so far of the Year of Our Continuing Downfall 2021.

  • Just found this and I think it's great, you have nailed Morgans vice down.. :) As far as topic goes, me and a friend have a podcast, Radonpodden (in swedish so far, working on going english) but we're abuot to have a rhime session before x-mas, and I have a great one for something that NO ONE would buy as a christmas present but it could very likely have been the gift of the year. ( If you're into the dark side of humor as I am) IKEAs new line, a coffin, The Last Nail.. I would love for you to write a joke about it and mabye even a rhime sp I could compare it to what I've got.. :) Keep doing what you're doing and stay safe.. Happy hollidays from a Swedish guy :)

  • I mean, is it really healthy to denigrate your efforts, perfectionists always dwell on the suck, if it hadn’t even improved from the first, it was already impossible, yet, well in the bullseye zone, I tend to forgive my want and keep it movin,’ folks will still appreciate what we’re even gOin’ for, well perfECted, tOo, but even so, never get in the way of a gift, granted for purposes beyond our own ability to even comprehend, even so✌🏽💥

Like it when you slide them in without fanfare. not trying to talk you down, really, keep going, I have high hopes for you, Just work on the material. Is the my wife is a whore joke a good one? Now i sound at least as arrogant and I don’t put myself out there for a living.

  • Charlie, you're delightful and doing a bang up job- very entertaining. I have absolutely no qualification to rate you as such other than two good ears and a rampant dislike for the terrible. Quick tip, don't alienate your audience with wretched words like "girlfriend" when you're so very handsome and well put together. You alienate the gay fans who immediately say "well shit, another hopeful right in the bin" and the women who vex "damn, he's really cute, and I love the voices but I'm not up for a scrap with "the girlfriend." I've done impersonations my entire life because I've been singing my entire life; masses in grade school, funeral masses, wedding masses, choir, professional choir, solos, college for the hell of it belting, etc. So my niche is that I do spot on impersonations of celebrities singing in their voices, in their ranges that shouldn't be possible for a male or anyone to glide up and down. I can belt out an Ethel Merman tune, hit her notes and hold them, then switch right over to Frank, Sammy or Dean and do the same with them effortlessly. My friends who have seen and heard it have begged me to continue to do them, but I can't, only for my pups. I have crippling bipolar anxiety, and PTSD now, and my dogs are the only audience I can share with. I've never used the word "impersonations" though because I felt it held me to a higher level of scrutiny. Keep doing what you're doing, please- it's grand!
