After being hired as a warm up artist for Friday Night with Jonathon Ross, Mock the Week and Would I Lie To You Charlie was soon asked to perform in front of the camera as a panellist on such shows as BBC3’s Comedy Gala 2011, BBC2’s Never Mind The Buzzcocks and ITV1’s Odd One In. Subsequently Charlie was a regular on the 2010 series of Richard Bacon’s Beer and Pizza Club, starred in the last series of The Comedy Store which aired in January 2011 and will be performing stand-up on The Rob Brydon Show Christmas Special in December 2011. Not only is multi-talented Charlie Baker a much in demand stand-up comedian and compere, but also an accomplished, highly acclaimed Jazz singer and musician (solo, and with The Charlie Baker Band). His music career has seen him perform with The John Wilson Orchestra, The Syd Lawrence Orchestra and The Ted Heath Big Band. ??Mixing his comedy, musical and acting talents Charlie will be performing his play The Wedding Band at the Edinburgh Festival every day at 2.45pm at the Gilded Balloon. Charlie was also the mainstay of Let’s Dance for Comic Relief 2011 (which he won) with Emmerdales James Thornton, defeating favourite Russell Kane with their tap routine and helping to raise over one million pounds for Comic Relief. Charlie graduated from the LAMDA 3 year classical acting course in 1997 and also trained with The National Youth Theatre. He has acted on both stage (The Almeida, Chichester Festival Theatre) and screen (The Boy In The Striped Pajamas, The Long Firm on BBC1 , The IT Crowd on Channel 4 and Doctor Who).
Almost single-handedly leading the resurgence of all things mod, comedian Ian Moore has achieved great success on the London and National circuits and is a regular headliner at London´s famous Comedy Store. Ian´s laconic observations on life, from the problems of using the wrong vocabulary in a German Pizza Hut to an almost pathological hatred of most forms of physical exertion, have proved hugely successful with live audiences all over the world from Australia to China, and the Phillipines to the Middle East. He hasn't performed in South America, but feels no reason why they wouldn't love him there too. Following a sell-out run at the Edinburgh Festival where he appeared with Catherine Tate, Ian was one of only seven British comics selected to appear at the pinnacle of all comedy festivals - Montreal´s Just for Laughs. Alongside the likes of Jimmy Carr, Ian performed in the sellout Britcom showcase proving to be such a success he subsequently went on to headline the Worldcom show at the festival´s finale. Ian has headlined at The Reading and Leeds music festivals, but he is too well dressed to consider appearing at Glastonbury
The Noise Next Door are one of the UK’s best comedy-improv troupes. They frequently headline at all the major clubs up and down the country and have sold out at the Edinburgh Festival for the last three consecutive years, leaving audiences in awe of their lightning-quick wit and breath-taking comedic talents. They have been performing their own distinctive brand of off-the-cuff comedy since they met at university. With absolutely no script, they have an uncanny knack of transforming audience suggestions into fantastically funny scenes and songs in the blink of an eye with a perfect blend of ludicrous characters, witty one-liners, epic stories, and explosive physicality. Unstoppably funny and uniquely talented, The Noise Next Door are well on their way to becoming comedy’s next big thing with their infectious and feel good brand of humour. "Hilarious... A superior kind of chaos" - The Daily Telegraph
