Charlie George

About

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 an MC course and a stand up 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 comedy improvisation course.

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.

During the summer Charlie gigged at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 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 on December 10th.

A little bit of a gig I did at the Cavendish called “how to be a professional brown lady”.
"Charlie George has an elegantly calm and collected demeanour,
her wry observations, situation and background are interesting."

polite savage

by Charlie George

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.

                                                           Crack-up Comedy Cabaret. 

Hi! We are Charlie George (aka Charles) & Jennie Falconer (aka Jen).

We want to bring people joy and relief through comedy whilst raising money for good causes.
 
We believe in nights that are specially curated and full of hand-picked acts we’ve seen live be funny and entertaining. We value diverse & eclectic line-ups that include stand-up, musical comedy, drag, cabaret etc. We love experimental, playful and madcap, as long as it’s FUNNY!
We love all things LGBTQI, colourful, explosive, absurd, silly, drole…
We are two queer femme hosts who organize, promote & present this night in our uniquely warm & wobbly manner.
 
Here are the event details for our first ever sell-out event at The Glory London where we raised £300 for Mental Health Charity Core Arts : Eventbrite : Crack-up Comedy Cabaret#1.
 
More event dates coming soon throughout the year, feel free to message our page Crack-up Comedy Cabaret  for more info and to keep up to date with what’s coming up.
