Nominated for Outstanding Achievement in Comedy Award 2016

Nominated Best Comedy Show Buxton Fringe 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).

”I have been a stand up since the last century, regularly doing twenty minute sets on the circuit and compering clubs. I have played everywhere, from The Comedy Store to Glastonbury Festival, Prisons to the Houses of Parliament.  

My comedy has evolved with my life , keeping pace with my experience and maturity- which reflects in the eight solo shows I’ve written and performed- from early shows about motherhood ‘The Magic Muff’, being an early female stand up ‘When Comedy Was Alternative’, a trip to India in search of an escaping great great Grandmother ‘Raj Rage’ to my last show about hitting sixty ‘Soixante Mirth’. I am currently performing Show Number Nine- Charmian Hughes Bra Trek.”

‘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
