Since gaining the coveted Greenall Whitley Comedian of the Year award in 1990, Charlie went from strength to strength, working the length and breadth of the country, including visits to Northern Ireland, Germany, and Spain. His qualities as a stand up comic were showcased in 1992 when Granada TV brought ‘The Comedians’ back, but his real talents lie in his comedy.
Charlie’s act took the corporate world by storm and coupled with his own sporting background (he is an ex pro footballer) he has proved a huge success on the After Dinner market. Charlie’s flexibility allows him to entertain any type of audience and has appeared on five tours with the greatest middleweight boxer ever, Marvellous Marvin Hagler.
Charlie is always in demand, as he is a clean and honest comedian who does not swear and is the same whether he is entertaining a family audience or five hundred men at a sporting dinner.
"In addition to being a good gag teller he's got a fair old line in impressions, Nelson Mandela, Chris Eubank, David Beckham, Mike Tyson and that was barely half of it. The audience loved him! not only was he funny but also he was clean."
"At the Grand Hotel in Scarborough organised by Sky Television Charlie performed at a boxing dinner. Charlie stormed the night with his boxing impessions and very topical gags.
After performing for over an hour he thoroughly deserved his standing ovation."
"A Cavalcade of Comics "THE STAGE" working his act from a large Punch & Judy type screen on stage, this talented and very imaginative entertainer brings a new and hilarious comedy idea in presentation. Following a good line in patter, he continued with tremendously funny send up impressions. He ended his act with a series of masks and puppets over the top of the screen, all complete with highly comical storylines which had us falling about with laughter".
