Very very nice
6 August 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Steve Coogan or in this case Tony Ferrino is an amazing artist and in this impersonation is really Great. Tony Ferrino the Portuguese Latino Casa nova Phenomenon a funny character that can show to all the real Portuguese way of live. If you don't know that he is making an impersonation you will think that is a real Portuguese Person .I am Portuguese and I find Steve one of the best in this field. I would like to see Tony Ferrino back in our TV screens. Another grotesque Coogan character. Tony Ferrino is a smarmy, romantic Portuguese singing star with tight trousers, a loud shirt, big hair, deep tan, sexy moustache and an ego the size of Jupiter.

In this special Tony Ferrino arrived on TV with a fully developed history that depicted his early career, singing in a group with his brothers (who then mysteriously disappeared) before achieving international fame as the winner of the Eurovision Song Contest.
