It is all part of London born Peter Kaye's make-up. Acclaimed as the "Ultimate Impressionist", he has the ability to bring the stars of stage and screen right into your conference, theatre or business gathering. While the voices of the famous are a part of many impressionist's repertoire, Peter is unique in that he also makes his characters visually realistic with the aid of life-like rubber masks, which he makes himself. But, the intricate skills required for mask-making are not confined to well-known celebrities. Peter also has a lucrative career in corporate impersonations as well. In a recent performance, for example, Peter emerged on a corporate dais, looking and sounding every bit like the successful ninety-six year old builder Sir Albert Jennings. The event was hosted by A.V. Jennings homes and, was so successful, that Peter has since made three more appearances as Sir Albert.

Forever introducing new characters to his line-up, Peter's extraordinary talents also bring to life personalities such as Frank Sinatra, Sean Connery, Mikhail Gorbachev, Bob Hawke, plus many more!

A world leader in his art, Australian-based Peter is also a talented actor, singer and song-writer. He has made numerous appearances on stage and television throughout the world; among which were five appearances at the famous London Palladium, three years in London's West End with the Black and White Minstrel Show, London Palladium Show Tour of Canada and tours of Hilton Hotels with such stars as Jack Jones, Dionne Warwick and Petula Clark.

He has also hosted and compered Channel Ten's Saturday Night Live, starred in Celebrity Squares and Australia Day Live and appeared on almost all major Australian television shows including the Midday Show with Ray Martin and Hey Hey It's Saturday.

In big demand for appearances in all manner of entertainment venues, this talented impressionist, singer, actor and songwriter is particularly popular in the corporate world where he has presented his unique performance for major companies including National Mutual Insurance, AMP, Australian Pharmaceuticals, Visyboard Australia, Allied Pickford, Apple Computers and many more.

Peter has captured the imagination of millions with his life-like portrayals of popular characters. He is a performer like no other. Next time you bump into George Burns - think twice - it could be that master of disguise, PETER KAYE!!

Peter can do up to ten characters in half an hour.
