Charlie is a former circus performer and dancer, she came to comedy to find her voice.
Turns out her voice is a lot like a white man’s trapped inside the body of a queer brown lady, so, that should be comfortable then…
Hailed as “hilarious” & “lights up a room,” Charlie has a stand up course and an MC course under her belt from the acclaimed Angel Comedy Venue The Bill Murray. She did an improvers comedy course with Logan Murray & was accepted onto the Soho Theatre Comedy Lab + training programme, as well as receiving a diversity scholarship to attend the Free Association’s improvisation training.
Charlie got to the finals of Pride’s Got Talent 2018 where she performed to hundreds at Charing Cross Theatre & won a place to perform to thousands on the Cabaret Stage in Dean Street, Soho as part of Pride London.
Charlie also got through to the finals of the Leicester Square New Comedian Award 2018.
She gigged at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival for the first time in 2018 to develop material for her work in progress show Polite Savage. It was performed as part of Camden People’s Theatre ‘Big Bang 2018’ amongst a select collection of ‘explosive new works.’
This show has been selected to be re-vamped & is newly titled: Dancing on the ceiling. It will be performed at the Tristan Bates Theatre Actors Centre, as part of Otherland Theatre’s ‘The Queer Season’ in Covent Garden on the 18th, 19th & 20th June 2019.

BEST IN CLASS
Best in Class is an entirely crowdfunded Edinburgh Fringe show promoting the rich talent of working class comedians.
For any up and coming comedian it can be hard to break into the industry let alone if you’re working class.
There are so many barriers facing working class performers, who remain underrepresented in comedy and at the worlds biggest arts festival, the Edinburgh Fringe.
Working class comedians have strong voices and unique experiences that need to be heard at the fringe. Growing up, they often have little access to the arts, they don’t have industry contacts or money and are unable to finance Edinburgh shows. They also struggle to take the time off work and to justify a full run at the fringe.
Support them in their endeavor to get to the fringe via their: Crowdfunding Campaign

Charlie is a polite savage. A former circus freak turned stressed yogi. Charlie 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.
A hilarious performance exploring what it means to be both in a divided world. Celebrating the alien, the other, and the weirdo in all of us.
A riot grrl howl in the dark from Wiltshire’s most insignificant funny brown female.
It’s first work-in-progress outing was at Camden People’s Theatre’s Big Bang.
Dancing on the Ceiling
Charlie’s work in progress comedy-theatre show returns! Revamped with new material & more unexpected playfulness. Including ‘Alternative Disco Ball’ Creation Workshop
DANCING ON THE CEILING
Tristan Bates The Actors Studio, Covent Garden
18th, 19th & 20th June 2019
A hilarious riot grrl romp through trying to find your feet in modern life when you’re all things mixed other. Jam packed with stand-up comedy, costumes, music, dancing. Plus valuable life lessons such as: How to flail your legs in the air to Lionel Richie!
