Sven-sational Sven-tertainment from Sven-alike
(Lookalikes-Unite member LU000006)
"The most popular, convincing and (surprisingly?) entertaining lookalike/soundalike celebrity impersonator!" Derek not only looks the double of Sven-Goran Eriksson with all his expressions and mannerisms, but he also provides a totally convincing and authentic impression act of the man himself which is fully supported with a detailed and extensive variety of wardrobe and props. People are routinely convinced that Derek is the famous ex-England Football team Manager and Head Coach, until (and unless) he charms and entertains them or drops out of character!
He has been acclaimed by many happy clients as "the most authentic and entertaining look-alike available". In addition to photographic and film work, Derek offers a straight or comedy performance act that can be tailored to any client’s show, product, club, event, promotion or party. He makes an amazing after-dinner speech or surprise guest appearance and his stand up routine has had them "rolling in the aisles"! Clients have acclaimed his performance as “amazing”,"uncanny", “brilliant” ,"hilarious" and “fantastic!
Derek is a confident and convincing actor who has even fooled members of The FA & England FC staff and players, TV news crews and the paparzzi into believing he is the real thing. He is also an accomplished and entertaining comedian and cabaret act and is in great demand as an entertainer in his own right while "borrowing" Sven's face and voice. He has extensive experience providing highly professional appearances for TV, Film, Video, Newspapers & Magazines, Corporate Promotions & events, Office Parties and Private Functions, Football Club Stunts & Promotions, Night Clubs and Advertising. Also available for highly effective Motivational Business and Sports "Team Talks" and memorable sales training.
The solo act:
"The truth about Sven.."
A near perfect double in looks, mannerisms and voice for the enigmatic & charismatic Swedish charmer!
".... you know, people have said that I am arrogant...?" Well, I won't even dignify that comment with a response!"
"....Nancy was hoping to follow and join me with you today... but I finally managed to shake her off on the way...."
".... People who say that I will chase anything in a skirt with a pulse couldn't be more wrong...... Some really hot babes prefer to wear trousers..."
Acclaimed as"hilarious", "Intriguing", "Amazing" & "A really unique novelty entertainer".
(Running time approx. 20-40 minutes (followed by audience mix & mingle / photo opportunities if appropriate/required). Total appearance approx. 3 hours but can be tailored to any specific event, promotion or show)
The Double acts:
"Sven" & "Ricky Gervais / David Brent" perform a much acclaimed comedy double act that is always a big hit on stage, TV & film or for any corporate or commercial meeting or event. As "obviously" two of the world's "greatest" managers from "The Office" and the world of soccer, these two missmatched characters have much in common, but there's much hilarious confusion while dispensing "pearls of wisdom" along the way...
"Sven and Nancy"
Featuring the totally outrageous, gorgeous and over the top "Nancy" lookalike-soundalike who has shared the billing with Svenalike on many live and pre recorded TV shows as well as hundreds of live personal appearances, parties, events, photo shoots and video recordings.
"Sven and Becks"
The best and most popular David Beckham impersonator available (as seen on TV, film and advertising) provides a most authentic partner for Svennis with a well received and much loved partnership established over many years and countless live and filmed assignments. Also as a very convincing and entertaining ensemble with the addition of "Posh and "Nancy"....
Other well established partnerships available with top quality star celebrity doubles including "Ozzy & Sharon", "Ricky Gervais", "Billy Conolly", "Deborah Harry", "Marilyn Monroe", "Hannibal Lecter", and many many others....

"The best and most entertaining look-alike / celebrity impersonators available!"
"Refreshingly original and fabulously entertaining!"
"The after dinner audience is notoriously hard to please, but thIs guy leave 'em laughing".
"It's better than having the real thing and mind bending to see the antics of this (apparently unlikely?) partnership!"
"The audience in the club went wild and had never seen anything like it!"
"Our exhibition stand was mobbed from the moment he appeared... We've never seen a queue of autograph and photo opportunity seekers form so quick or last so long... He was more popular than the real celebrities who appeared!"
"Office parties may never be the same again!...we hope they will be available again next year...!"
"Our guests were amazed, enchanted and entertained for hours..."
"The resemblance is uncanny and virtually indistinguishable from the real thing, but providing much more entertainment value at a fraction of the cost!"
NOW BOOKING all locations 24/7!
Guaranteed to entertain... Solo or as any of the many double acts!
"Of the 9 or 10 truly talented lookalike performance artistes in the UK, Derek stands out as the clear Number one and he is an incredibly professional & totally convincing actor in the most difficult and demanding situations as well as a near perfect double for Sven in looks, voice and manerisms"
“The most convincing and entertaining lookalike impression act available!”
"I didn't think Sven could be so funny!"
“Almost certainly better than Sven appear in person, and much more entertaining”.
"I thought he was Sven until he droped out of character and spoke in his own voice"
"The football mad lads (and lasses) at the office party couldn't believe it when Sven walked in!"
"I couldn't believe the coincidence when the real Sven walked in when we where expecting a lookalike actor...and then Derek introduced himself...the likeness is truly uncanny and totally believable down to every tiny detail of appearance, voice, movement, and accent"
