How Oliver Callan finetuned his impressions of Leo and Enda

The impressionist also broke down how he imitates some of RTÉ’s top presenters. / YouTube

THE CURRENT TAOISEACH and his predecessor are two very different people – and especially when you’re looking at them from Oliver Callan’s point of view.

The impressionist and satirist spoke to us about how he pinned down his imitations of Leo Varadkar and Enda Kenny. The best way to mimic Leo’s voice? Think of a didgeridoo, Callan said.

He also outlined three impressions he has found most difficult – Ryan Tubridy, Dave Fanning, and Marian Finucane.

Watch the full video above.

Callan’s Kicks is on RTÉ Radio 1 at 6.30pm every Friday. Listen back here.
