Charlie Ross has spent the last six years establishing himself as one of the top stand-up comedians in the country. He has received warm plaudits for his laid-back charming style, which he uses as a platform for observations on life and popular culture.
He has staged two shows at the Edinburgh International Fringe Festival, "Charlie's Angles" (2002) and "Tracksuits and Munchkins" (2003) for which he received warm reviews and played a number of sell-out shows. (See the Fringe section of this site for more information and reviews).
Charlie trained at Heriot-Watt University and attained a degree in Physical Education. During his studies he worked as a singer both in clubs around the country and with a band, Score. It has been however in the field of stand-up comedy that Charlie has shone. He has supported many of the UK's top acts and has played in top venues including the Comedy Store and Jongleurs.
As a former PE teacher, and from the West of Scotland, his observations on his life as football-loving lad with a penchant for West End musicals have been enjoyed by audiences all over the country.
He also has extensive radio credits in Scotland. Charlie, a self-confessed and “outed” Doctor Who fan will soon be performing as the villain “Lest” in a Doctor Who audio adventure called “Memory Lane” with Paul McGann as the Doctor. Charlie has also made several appearances as evening entertainment at a series of Doctor Who and Sci-Fi conventions.
Charlie has enjoyed considerable success playing the UK circuit in the capital as well as clubs as far afield as Cardiff, Plymouth and Exeter!
He has also been working on the Comedy Network, playing at comedy nights in universities all over the country.
