Renowned impressionist, comedian, satirist and columnist, Rory Bremner, has been confirmed as the host of the 2022 GIMA Awards.

Having been on our screens for so long, I know Rory’s presence at this year’s event will be met with great approval from our gala guests. We cannot wait to welcome Rory to the stage to not only enjoy his unique sense of humour but to also learn who will be crowned GIMA Award winners following a hectic and innovative 2022 season.”
