I'm comedian, actor and writer, Charlie Vero-Martin. I'm from Edinburgh and live in London. I specialise in character comedy, teach improv comedy and have a penchant for puppets. I've just finished a full run at the Edinburgh Fringe of my solo comedy show Picnic and a play called Super.
Here are some more things about me...
I've written jokes and sketches for BBC Scotland, BBC Radio Scotland, BBC Radio 4, Hat Trick Productions and Griff Rhys Jones.
You might have seen me recently on BBC Three or Next Up Comedy performing with Weirdos Comedy or at the Leicester Square Theatre Sketch Off! 2023 Final. Soon I'll be at the Funny Women Stage Awards Final...
In recent years I have also been shortlisted for the Funny Women Writing Award and UKTV-Triforce WriterSlam and longlisted for BBC Interconneted and the BBC Ignite Children's Animation Award.
I'm often in disguise as Persephone Gemstone, Mr Pinecone, Professor Von Flip Flop, The Gatekeeper, Mr Basketcase, Neville Nevillson, Napoleon, Dante, Zelda Fitzgerald, Amelia Earhart, Jane Austen or when of my many other comedy alter egos.
I have studied clowning with various masters including Gaulier, graduated from the NFTS in a Writing & Producing Comedy diploma with Channel 4 and have an MA in Italian & Modern History from St Andrews University (which is surprisingly relevant to my work).
