Alistair continues to make forays into the world of classical music and will be taking his ground-breaking show, "Introductions To Classical Piano", out on tour again in the spring. In the show, he mixes stories about the composers of the fourteen-or-so pieces he plays with his trademark wit and impressions. It's a unique show - a totally new way of presenting classical music. It's the first time, to his knowledge, that an impression of Harry Kane has introduced a piece of Debussy but is very much classical piano with a little comedy - not comedy with music !

Dates and venues on the Home page.

Also, later in 2019, Alistair will be back out on tour doing his more regular stand-up show, alongside comedy legend Jasper Carrott. 

He will also be recording six new episodes of 'Gaby's Talking Pictures' for Radio 4.

Look out for 'Alistair McGowan ; The Piano Album' (Sony Classical). Still available to download !

In 2019, Alistair also hopes to : improve his typing skills, make a 40 break at snooker and to try and take some sort of an interest in his website !
