Scottish-British comedian, impersonator, grocery clerk and teacher. Bremner won his first break in 1981 at the Edinburgh Festival in "The Importance of Being Varnished," but continued with other jobs, including teaching English in Paris, working in supermarkets and impersonated Prince Charles on French and German radio. He was discovered by Terry Wogan and asked to appear on the first "Wogan" show.

After Princess Diana's infamous "Panorama" interview, Bremner dedicated a series of hilarious sketches of the "Queen of Hearts." In July 1985, he hit the pop charts with a cricket-based pastiche.

Bremner was married in January 1987 for seven years.
