Tom Sainsbury reveals his Christopher Luxon Snapchat impression is 'monstrous'

New Zealand comedian Tom Sainsbury says he is struggling with his Snapchat impression of incoming Prime Minister Christopher Luxon. 

Sainsbury, who's known for his online impressions of other National Party MPs, told The Project Luxon was "really hard" to perfect online because of restrictions on the filters. 

Sainsbury has portrayed the likes of Paula Bennett, Bill English and Judith Collins online, with each character having a distinctly different personality. 

His debut film, Loop Track, releases in cinemas this Thursday after a successful run at the start of the New Zealand International Film Festival. 

However, he confessed while he was working on further films, he'd also been turning his attention to getting the new PM right. 

"With Snapchat, you can either be bald or have someone's face - you can't have both." 

"The alternative I've done is I've just got a picture of our friend, Mr Luxon, and it's just my lips that are superimposed onto it, so it's monstrous. 

"But it does the trick."
