Tim Oliver has been a professional, full time lookalike/impersonator of Ricky Gervais/David Brent since 2004. He has been on many TV shows including Britain’s Got Talent as one of the “Chippendoubles” and is currently appearing in the new series of “Lookalikes” for Channel 4.
Tim appeared on 4 episodes of Louie Spence’s Show business, on Sky1, (cameo parts with David Beckham and Gordon Ramsey Lookalikes). He has worked for the BBC comedy department as a voice over artist of Ricky for a comedy spoof of the Kings Speech and has been on various radio shows.
Tim Oliver met Ricky when he was summoned to interview him for Total Film Magazine. The interview took place at the Hammersmith Apollo theatre and they got on famously, in fact, well enough for Ricky to have said “Tim is the best” in a small video clip which can be seen on the left. Subsequently to that, Ricky told the commissioner for Sky1 that he is Tim’s biggest fan.
Tim was lucky enough to work with Ricky on another occasion when he was invited to work on a Hollywood movie as Ricky’s body double in the Muppet’s.
Since Ricky hosted the Golden Globes Awards in Hollywood, Tim has been asked to host a number of high profile Hollywood style award ceremonies, including; The Scottish Pharmaceutical awards, Edinburgh – Slough, Business Awards, Slough – Office Depot Awards, Manchester – Siemens Awards, Pinewood Studios, and many more. He has also been the main content of viral videos for many websites and conferences, including Fujitsu in Australia to Microsoft Office 2010 in the UK.
