The Latest Show
6th March 2020
Watermans, London. The latest show from the anarchic and defiantly different duo. Accompanied by piano, drums, and sax, expect twisted takes on The Greatest Showman, retro electro swing, inverted opera and a very, very large balloon.
Packed with anarchy, wit and comic ingenuity, Charlie is joined by the internationally acclaimed mezzo soprano Louise Innes in this cabaret with claws. Described by The Observer as “A one woman weapon of mass distraction”.
Cathedral of Pleasure
A breath-taking melange of acrobatic activities and sassy songs, swinging nuns and delightfully twisted circus performances of straps, cyr wheel, silks, hoop, fire and acrobalance -all against a background of deeply ecclesiastical anarchy. You've barely time to breathe.
A completely unpredictable, mad capped evening of festive frivolity.
Encompassing her usual dark sense of humour and theatrical flair this is a night of Disney classics, as you have never seen before, sadistic Sugar Plum faeries, operatic rock and a touching gay Eskimo.

Staverton. The latest show from the anarchic and defiantly different duo. Accompanied by piano, drums, and sax, expect twisted takes on The Greatest Showman, retro electro swing, inverted opera and a very, very large balloon.
Subversive, anarchic, darkly hilarious and shamelessly festive. Charlie and Louise are back with a Christmas show, threatening to blow the cover off Elsa and Anna,The Snowman and a poor little Drummer boy. Santa will never be the same. Expect the unexpected...
Following a run of sell out shows, just when you thought they could go no further. They did. Ingenious and mischievous interpretations of classical music, nursery rhymes and Tim Minchin songs combined with alarmingly dexterous use of the Postman.
Charlie Bicknell is dynamic, witty and tempestuous. An evening of darkly comic twisted songs, and outrageous assumptions. By turns funny and deeply moving, songs range from original material to that of Tim Minchin, The Tigerlillies, Corky and the Juice Pigs and Jacques Brel.
A show that simmers, steams and occasionally boils over, it's packed with contentious and achingly funny songs from the likes of Tim Minchin, Amanda Palmer and Fascinating Aida. An eclectic and startlingly athletic performance.
