Alexander Sparrow – World Top 10 Trump impersonator (as chosen by Laugh Factory, Hollywood) – is coming back to Picton.

After a great turn out at last year’s Picton performance of the nation-wide smash-hit, The President, Sparrow is bringing his brand new Trump show, DJ Trump, to Picton Little Theatre, on Saturday 6 May. This follows very quickly from his first international Trump gig, in the USA, just a week beforehand.

Sparrow is heading to Hollywood, vying for the World #1 Trump impersonator, on April 26. He will perform a 5 – 10 minute set in front of a room of 300 people. The decision is made from this one performance. “It’s a huge deal, and getting in the top 10 has already made a big difference to my career. The prize if I win – headlining at every Laugh Factory club in the US, and hosting their new online show, Fake News/Real News, would be life-changing,” the 24 year old comic says.

“Picton’s been a second home to me since I first did stand up there as part of the Picton Comedy Festival. I can’t wait to be back in front of Picton audiences,” says Sparrow. The show is coming direct from Nelson Fringe, which opens the day after he lands back from his stint in the USA. “By the time I hit Picton, I’ll know if I’m World Top 10, or World #1. It’s a busy and exciting time.”

DJ Trump is a fresh take on the world’s most infamous man. The synopsis is:

His dad hates him, he’s never had friends, and he’s in a minority group (the top 1%). After taking on the presidency and control of America, he digs deep and realises it’s time to take control of his own life.

On a journey fraught with danger, Trump breaks through the society approved façade he hides behind and turns the world on its head. In his 70th year, he will finally ignore his parent’s expectations and achieve his childhood dreams.

“It’s about confronting his past. No-one knows the real man, and here’s a great chance to work out who he is,” says Sparrow. “It’s a lot of fun, and I’m sure Picton audiences will agree with me.”

SYNOPSIS

Donald Trump, man of the hour, has had a hard life: he’s never quite fitted in. His dad hates him, he’s never had friends, and he’s in a minority group (the top 1%). After taking on the presidency and control of America, he digs deep and realises it’s time to take control of his own life.

On a journey fraught with danger, Trump breaks through the society approved façade he hides behind and turns the world on its head. In his 70th year, he will finally ignore his parent’s expectations and achieve his childhood dreams.
