Nominated for Outstanding Achievement in Comedy Award 2016, comedian Charmian Hughes studied clowning under Philippe Gaulier and Theatre de Complicite but unable to uphold the mime vow of silence, ran away to play stand-up comedy clubs throughout the nation entertaining everyone from members of the Houses of Parliament to ‘Lifers’ in prison (not to be confused).
‘‘Charmian Hughes even in such a short time seems to give a sense of both the gravity and the humour of her comic potential.” – Broadway Baby
“A wonderful way with a curtain….Charmian is the poster girl for the natural sexagenarian and time spent with her is a joy. A genuinely enjoyable watch” – Kate Copstick, The Scotsman
“Lovely surprises” – Bruce Dessau, The Guardian
