You've got so many killer lines that I want on a t-shirt and a piece of driftwood in my flat. Winning this competition really is only the beginning for you..."

*Since March 23rd and official UK lockdown all live events have been cancelled or postponed due to Coronavirus. There are some amazing comedian’s delivering online content during this time, I’d highly recommend Kiri Pritchard-Mclean’s Comedy at the Covid Arms which raises funds for the brilliant Trussell Trust here: http://www.comedyatthecovid.co.uk/ & Stewart Goldsmith’s Infinite Sofa here: https://www.comedianscomedian.com/sofa/ As a new comedian still learning the ropes (and possessing a very small ugly rented room with no suitable drapes) I will not be delivering content online during this time, but working on writing and retaining my sense of humour for post-lockdown life. I don’t have a donation page for similar reasons, I consider myself fresh meat & I’ve always had supporting jobs and survival mechanisms hardwired & primed for eating cans of beans. I feel incredibly lucky and grateful that I do! If you feel you want to, you can donate to NHS charities together to support NHS staff & volunteers caring for Covid-19 patients here: https://www.nhscharitiestogether.co.uk/ Stay well & hope to see you on the other side.  Big Love. xCG

"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."

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

"Charlie George has an impressive but unsurprising list of accolades behind her. Before comedy she was a circus performer and dancer.
This accounts for the fact that from her eyebrows to her mouth she has complete control over her body movements and uses them to full comic effect. She's just fun to watch! With dark, brilliantly-timed humour."
Anna Staufenberg
