Charlie has been performing improv since 2008 when she joined St Andrews improv and sketch group Blind Mirth. With them she has performed three sold-out, five-star runs at the Edinburgh Fringe and developed new formats for both short and long-form improv.
In 2014 Charlie came to London for the first Writing and Producing Comedy diploma with Channel 4 at the National Film and Television School. That year she also joined Glitch – The Improvised Puppet Show and started two-prov Mike & Charlie.
In 2017 she took her debut solo show “Dante’s History of the Banished” to the Edinburgh Fringe and performs many of her characters on the circuit, including the improvised ‘agony aunt’ Napoleon. She has also hosted and produced a number of comedy nights including The Greatest Story Somewhat Told – an improvised nativity play. She has written for BBC Scotland and recently assisted Griff Rhys Jones on his new solo tour.
Her 2018 Ed Fringe solo character show “The 24/7 Club” also included a number of improvised segments and was called “one of the most compelling shows you will see this year” by EdFest Magazine.
With a background in dance and having trained in acting, writing and clowning, Charlie likes to help performers find new ways to freshen up their act and bring joy into improv. So whether you are a new group looking to build skills and confidence or an established team wanting a bit of a shake up, Charlie would love to hear from you.

You can also find her recommended as an Improv coach on the Hoopla Impro website.
I also offer corporate improv workshops and presentation but I’ll be writing a new webpage for that soon! In the meantime, here is a review I received from running improv workshops at the TBAP teachers’ conference:
“And now for something completely different! We thought we were a pretty studious and serious bunch until Charlie taught us that laughter can really be the right medicine. A brilliant contribution to staff wellbeing and team building.”
