Charlie Baker’s versatile talent as a stand-up comedian, actor, and highly acclaimed jazz-singer has seen him earn a reputation as ‘a superior take on the modern showman’ (The Guardian). He has appeared in numerous TV shows and avid sports fan Charlie has been heard on BBC5 Live’s Fighting Talk and covering on talksport’s. He also has a cult podcast The National Obsession.
As a talented actor he has starred in Eastenders (BBC1), Doctor Who, The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas as well as the hit West End musical I Can’t Sing where he played the hunchback with “a hilarious rap number” (The Telegraph).
Charlie is currently working on a brand new family show for Edinburgh ‘The Greatest Goat Of All Time’ as well as working on a new stand up tour. As ever Charlie is multi-tasking!
