Gandalf tells you why to 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)

  • Imagine how this video would age when CDC and WHO will say that lockdowns didn't do jack sh*it to stopping Corona virus, just like they did with Ibrupofen being ok to take in case of Corona or the PCR tests giving 30% positives therefore they aren't so reliable like they used to be in the beginning. 🙄

  • The average age of death for Coronavirus patients is older than the UK's average life expectancy. So to conclude you are more likely to die of old age than this virus.

    Guy IncognitoGuy Incognito8 månader sedan
    • ​@Guy Incognito no, i'm saying your comparison is flawed, to truly compare the data sets, you need an existence where the virus is the only way to die, and one where everything else is the only way to die then make a comparison. Obviously in reality it's impossible, but your comparison in the real world is not accurate

      Charlie HopkinsonCharlie Hopkinson8 månader sedan
    • @Charlie Hopkinson That would be even worse as that means we have destroyed our economy and turned our nation into an open prison to prevent people already dying from catching a virus.

      Guy IncognitoGuy Incognito8 månader sedan
    • Not a direct comparison, as people already dying on old age is the baseline, the virus deaths is on top of those, the two are not mutually exclusive

  • Tolkien would be rolling in his grave if he saw his creation used as propaganda to justify the exercise of absolute, tyrannical state power. 'But what if we used the ring for good?...' did all of you miss the primary message of the saga?

      Charlie HopkinsonCharlie Hopkinson9 månader sedan
    • Amazing strawman, but no. My message is that this is an involuntary lockdown of 1 billion people, not a quarantine. And if you fear a force of nature with a tiny chance of killing you over completely unprecedented governmental overreach, then the entire point of LOTR is lost on you.

  • The virus is real but this lockdown is crap. Fauci had already admitted to his fellow doctors in the New England Journal of medicine that it's just a strong version of the flu. They"re locking us down while Trump signed 5G into LAW. ( Yeah no one got a choice about it, they just did it) So now we'll all be hooked up to the cancer causing " Internet of Things" Meanwhile Trump has given unprecedented power to the Federal Reserve over the US economy to keep it from collapsing ( from no one being able to go to work) & it's only a matter of time til they introduce a cashless, digitized economy as well as a coronavirus vaccine ( possibly with chip inside) So The New World Order is being rolled out in front of our faces & they used a populist president to do it while we all cower at home over a "virus" no more fatal than the common cold. So how was your day?
