Scott Capurro

"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."

hosted by Charlie George & Jennie Falconer

Our next event is a Spooky Special on 

Thursday 24th October 2019!

“Charlie George and Jennie Falconer make you want to put them in your pocket and take them away with you. They are as warm and gooey as a treacle tart, but they will make you laugh like a hyena!”

– Diva Magazine.

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."
