Charlie George

About

Charlie is an award winning comedian and writer. 

LGBTQ New Comedian of the Year 2019.  So You Think You’re Funny & Funny Women Awards runner up 2019. Leicester Square New Comedian Award & Pride’s Got Talent finalist 2018.

Charlie’s a former circus performer and dancer, who came to comedy to find her voice. Turns out her voice is a lot like an 18th century white man’s trapped inside the body of a queer brown lady.

Hailed as “Hilarious” & “Lights up a room,” Charlie developed her stand-up at Angel Comedy Venue The Bill Murray, along with bursary places to the Soho Theatre Young Company & FA improv.

Charlie performed to hundreds at Charing Cross Theatre, and thousands on the Cabaret Stage in Soho, as part of reaching the finals of Pride’s Got Talent. She filled a packed theatre with laughter while reaching the finals of the Leicester Square New Comedian Award. And delivered a “hilarious and no messin” (BBC) performance live from the BBC, creating ‘one of the best moments of the night by “The spectacular way [she] called out the 23% pay gap she experiences as a woman of colour”’ (BBC Asian Network).

Most recently Charlie was shortlisted for a creative futures award, longlisted for a Thousand Films & Sid Gentle scriptwriting competition & selected for the BFI Film Network with her writing. She runs and co-hosts her own comedy night, ‘Crack-Up Comedy Cabaret’ at The Glory in London in aid of Hackney mental health charity Core Arts and gigs all across the country

"There's no one else even talking about what you're talking about! You've got so many interesting, funny things about you, that you put together in such an intelligent creative way. Really please continue to pursue comedy! You're wonderful!"
Scott Capurro
Comedian
"Charlie George has an elegantly calm and collected demeanour, her wry observations, situation and background are interesting. A personable & witty comic with a playful, naughty streak and an ear for a strong gag."

Thursday 24th October 2019!

Crack-up Comedy Cabaret

We want to bring people joy and relief through comedy whilst raising money for good causes. We believe in nights that are specially curated, full of hand-picked gems we’ve seen live. We love diverse & eclectic line-ups that include stand-up, musical comedy, drag, cabaret and more.
 
We love experimental, playful and madcap, as long as it’s funny! Our hearts are all things LGBTQI+. We are two queer femme hosts who organize, promote & present this night in our uniquely warm & wobbly manner.
 
Our first ever event sold-out at The Glory London and raised hundreds of pounds for Mental Health Charity Core Arts. Eventbrite : Crack-up Comedy Cabaret#1.
 
Funny Women feature as a top pick for female led comedy nights:

"Charlie’s work captures the voice of marginalised British people and the style and form of her shows allows for serious subjects to be discussed in a fun and accessible way. She is a very talented writer-performer and a skilled producer, keen to elevate other marginalised people through her shows.
We have been very impressed with the quality of her work and dedication through Soho Theatre Young Company and look forward to supporting her through various projects ahead."
Jules Haworth
Education Producer, Soho Theatre
