Varinder is one of the most unique callers of the Iain Lee LBC radio show and LBC itself. He has been phoning for quite a while now and has grown in popularity for all the right and wrong reasons. One thing about Varinder is that after a few listens you will never forget him. He sometimes phones Clive Bull but it's his conversations with Iain Lee and the other callers that makes him such a personality. Here we give you more information about Varinder himself, his catch phrases, his impersonators and more...
Varinder is a 19 year old male of East Indian ethnicity from the Newham in East London. Newham as of 2006, in a study carried out by Channel 4, is the 4th worst place to live in the whole of Britain. This study took into account school results when giving Newham it's rating, however this didn't seem to apply to Varinder. This is because judging by his education he performed quite well in the school he went to in Newham. This was Langdon School which Varinder attended from 1999 to 2004. In 2004 he went to Leyton Sixth Form College till 2006. Varinder then went to the University of Westminster and he's still there studying as of 2007.
Varinder has some popular catch phrases that can often be heard when he calls the Iain Lee show. These range from the weird to the downright absurd and Varinder often says them when other callers are placed on air with him. Some of the most common are:
Iain Lee has recorded some of Varinder's comments and his most popular catch phrases. Iain will then play these recordings to new or unsuspecting callers on air. Iain remains silent and lets the caller talk to the recordings with amusing consequences. Iain picks the ideal callers because they don't suspect that they're not talking to a real person. The following is a perfect example of this.
So popular and well know is Varinder that there are now Varinder impersonators . These are people who phone Iain's show just to pretend to be Varinder and repeat his catch phrases in Varinder's tone. Varinder has been on air with the impersonators all claiming to be the real Varinder which sometimes leads to arguments. Varinder then use to call himself pretending to be an impersonator without success. There is also a female Varinder impersonator who adds a feminine touch to Varinder's catch phrases.
Iain Lee has started giving out Varinder's mobile number live on his LBC show for people to call it. Iain will encourage them to phone while Varinder is on the air, Varinder's reactions to the calls can then be heard on the show. Some people who call are abusive, some flirt, while some don't seem to have the guts to say anything or believe it's actually Varinder's phone. You just know some of them will have asked if he's gay (see above). Iain has said that he plans to post a video on his Iain Lee YouTube page of Varinder taking calls but at present this hasn't happened. Due to giving out his number Varinder says he now gets calls at all times of the day. This has meant he's had to turn the phone off most of the time. To join the fun Varinder's mobile number is 07931 956 085.
Overall Varinder (along with Barry from Watford) is one of the best callers of LBC . His calls are sometimes short, sometimes a bit weird but always memorable. Despite the age difference between Iain and Varinder they appear to get on really well and Iain has said that he wishes to involve Varinder in some sort of skit of such. This can only be encouraged for the meeting of anarchic and comedic minds. Varinder is studying films at university so maybe there can be some multimedia work there. In any case Varinder is a vital part of the Iain Lee show and helps make it one of LBC's best.
