is a stand-up comedian, a metalhead, an amateur occultist and a musician. I've
pretty much been a show off since birth. I did comedy sketches in assemblies at
school, and pissed away my A Levels making comedy films with my mates on my
brothers camcorder. You will never get to see these, because my mates would
fucking kill me if I put them on the net.
I've done a bit of telly,
(including Never Mind The Buzzcocks, and Saxondale with Steve Coogan) and lots
of radio (including BBC Radio 1, Radio 4, Radio 4 Extra, and 5live) but live is
where the hidden mind-control signals planted in my work are most effective.
I'm a bit of a regular on the
comedy stages at Download,
festivals. I've opened for Amanda Palmer
off of the Dresden Dolls, done audience warm-up for Never Mind the Buzzcocks,
hosted the Metal Hammer
Golden Gods, played at Torture Garden and the Bizarre Magazine Ball and load of
other events where people mainly wear shiny things.
I'm vegan, as you can tell by
the fact that I have a lithe, sinewy body. I'm a heterosexual transvestite, as
you can tell by the fact that I wear female clothes and fancy girls. I'm not a
goth. This is an understandable error, but there is a difference between a
metaller who cross-dresses and a goth. And if need be I will fight you to
demonstrate that difference. I've got nothing against goths. Some of my best
friends are goths. Their food is lovely and they have natural rhythm.
I am in a steampunk band called
The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing and I do
walking tours of Jack The Ripper's murder sites.

TV and Film
Having originally trained at the

film in ‘Shackleton’; ‘Eastenders’; ‘Kavanagh QC’; ‘Out of the Blue’; ‘Touching
Evil’ and ‘Bramwell’. On film he has been in ‘Mrs Dalloway‘ and ‘The Madness of
King George’. Recent theatre work includes ‘Orwell a Celebration’ at Trafalgar
Studios London and the Edinburgh Festival. In this play he was described by the
Daily Mirror as ‘a performer at the very peak of his powers.’ The Guardian said
'Cruttenden doesn't so much play glumly respectable middle-aged, middle-income
insurance salesman George Bowling as inhabit him.'
Live Stand Up
Hal’s big breakthrough in stand
up came with his nomination for the Perrier Newcomer Award at the 2002 Edinburgh
Festival for his solo show ‘Hal’, followed by a highly successful run the
following year of his second show, ‘To Hal and Back’, which was also performed
at the Soho Theatre in London. His 2008 show ‘Climb Every Molehill’ was
critically acclaimed and this year, ‘Tough Luvvie’ was described as his best
show yet with the Daily Telegraph saying, ‘He’s naturally funny but he’s
evolving here into something more challenging and provocative than some
jolly-faced follower in the footsteps of Michael McIntyre.’

Internationally, Hal has
travelled across Canada on the Just For Laughs 2008 and 2011 Comedy tours. He
has appeared at two Just For Laughs Galas in Montreal hosted by Joan Rivers

After a fantastic show with Josh
Widdicombe here at the Holsworthy Comedy Club a year ago, Charlie Baker
is coming back to do his one man show.
is more than just a stand up comic. Yes, he's a comedian but his talents stretch
far and wide including being an accomplished Jazz singer and musician. In fact,
if the Rat Pack had come out of Devon, it would have been Charlie and his
cohorts round a table chomping down tea and scones instead of champagne.
Charlie's combination of music and mirth has made him a big hit on the stand-up
circuit. After graduating form LAMDA in 1997, Charlie has acted and performed
the length and breadth of the country but turned his hand to stand up comedy a
good few years later.
2005 he was a semi finalist in the BBC New Act of the Year and the following
year was a finalist in both the So You Think You're Funny and the You Must Be
Joking competitions. In 2009 his unique talent won him the Edinburgh 'Spirit Of
The Fringe' award. Charlie Baker is what you can only describe as a showman, in
fact his Edinburgh show was entitled 'The World's Greatest Show Off'.
modern take on a traditional profession is entertaining audiences up and down
the land, both as a performer and an excellent compere. Charlie's enthusiasm
makes him instantly likeable and his musical proficiency make him stand out from
Charlie has been known to pop up on the television from time to time. He has had
roles in Gentleman's Relish and The Long Firm on BBC and in The IT
Crowd on Channel 4. He also made the jump to the big screen, acting in
The Boy In The Striped Pajamas.
Talking of jumps, Charlie showed off all his dancing skills in an unforgettable
advert for Top Up TV a few years back.
Musically he has performed at some prestigious events, including playing at The
Houses Of Parliament, the MTV Cannes Party, The Labour Party 2004/05 Conference
and Sir Ian McKellen's 50th Birthday Party. How about that?
Charlie Baker certainly is a unique talent. He has given the age old profession
of entertainer a modern twist and from that, there is no one else like him on
the circuit at the moment.
Charlie Baker's Jazz band is called The Charlie Baker Band. It's not
original but enough people have confused him with Charlie Parker to make a
