Charlie George

About

Charlie is an award winning stand-up comedian and writer.

LGBTQ New Comedian of the Year 2019.  So You Think You’re Funny & Funny Women Awards runner up 2019 & Leicester Square New Comedian Award & Pride’s Got Talent finalist 2018.

Charlie has performed stand-up on BBC Asian Network Live and the BBC’s No Country for Young Women Podcast, as well as appearing on Comedy Central in Rhod Gilbert’s Growing Pains.

A talented and accomplished writer Charlie was chosen to feature in Charlie Brooker’s writers room for Cunk & Other Humans 2019, The BAFTA nominated AntiViral Wipe 2020 and Death to 2020 & 2021 for Netflix. She has written for the C4 Election night special, 8 out of 10 cats, Hypothetical, Newsjack, The Now Show, Have I Got News For You, Joe Lycett’s Got Your Back & Frankie Boyle’s New World Order.

Charlie was selected out of 3,700 writers for the Penguin Write Now editorial programme to write her first book Door to Door, about her experiences being raised Jehovah’s witness & ending up transient homeless as a result of leaving the religion & her family home as a teenager. 

Charlie currently has original comedy/comedy-drama scripts in development with VAL TV & Parti Productions. 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 established her own comedy night Crack-Up Comedy Cabaret at The Glory in London in aid of Hackney mental health charity Core Arts 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.”

"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."

“Charlie George and Jennie Falconer (the hosts) 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!”

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 LGBTQ+ We are two queer femme hosts who organize, promote & present this night in our uniquely wild & warm 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."
