Charlie’s instant likeability and charming delivery style has earned him a glittering reputation.
The Guardian has described the hyperactive funnyman as 'a superior take on the modern showman' and 'Devon's answer to Frank Sinatra'.
Charlie Baker tour dates
An English comedian known for his hyperactive brand of humour. Since winning Channel Four's prestigious 'So You Think You're Funny' Competition at the Edinburgh Festival in 1998, an award previously won by Phil Kay, Dylan Moran, Lee Mack, Tommy Tiernan and Peter Kay, he has been a regular performer at major venues on both the London and National circuit.
With more energy than a hyperactive six-year-old sucking on a lollipop while bouncing on a space-hopper, he is a veteran of several critically acclaimed Edinburgh Festival shows, three sold out national theatre tours and a New Zealand tour, firmly establishing him as one of comedy's most lively, amenable and dynamic performers.
'He is a great storyteller... prepared to go to the bleakest and most uncomfortable places... The tears of laughter came in floods’ (The Scotsman).
'Frankly brilliant' (http://www.SuchSmallPortions.com)
