Charlie currently has original comedy/comedy-drama scripts in development and recently won two New York Festivals Radio Awards for ‘Best Writing’ & ‘Best Regularly Scheduled Comedy Programme’ for her writing contributions to ‘Rockanory’ an original series for Absolute Radio with Unusual Productions.

Charlie is a regular MC/host and gigs all across the country. She was the host of an Audible original podcast series exploring evidence-based solutions to improving wellbeing & mental health with anthropologist Mary-Ann Ochota called  ‘Happiness & How to Get It.’ Because her preferred title ‘Despair & how to release its death grip,’ wasn’t “a viable option.”

A note to my young queer self... turner contempoary

"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
Women in Comedy Festival
"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."
Steve Bennett

"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!"

“Charlie George (the host) is super warm & will make you laugh like a hyena!” – Diva Magazine.

"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
