"She's the kind of girl who makes men loosen their ties and women shorten their skirts. You have been warned!" The Sunday Times
"A hilarious rendition of bitter-sweet songs… darkly brilliant" The Independent on Sunday
"Charlotte Bicknell essayed a slinky aerial ascent whilst delivering a James Bond medley… genius." The Evening Standard
Charlie Bicknell is a force to be reckoned with and her new show, which she brings to Crazy Coqs, is packed with anarchy, wit and comic ingenuity. She is joined by the internationally acclaimed mezzo-soprano Louise Innes in NO ANGEL, a cabaret show with claws.
Songs range from Tim Minchin to Meatloaf, Jacques Brel to Bizet, including acrobatic antics…whilst simultaneously singing! Charlie has been described by The Observer as "A one woman weapon of mass distraction", "Kicking, thriving, surprising, shocking and always delighting." With exceptional pianist David Harrod, and Jez Brodie, the ex postman turned circus strong man, this show involves no actual animals and very few fish - it is a magnificent evening's entertainment.
Charlie Bicknell became a household name playing 'Delilah' in BBC2's This Life and subsequently starred as Scout in Ben Elton's West End hit Popcorn. Continuing to work as an actress for the National Theatre and rep around the UK, Charlie then moved into cabaret, performing all over the world. Recently she received the accolade as being "The finest living exponent of Brecht" from Dudley Winterbottom, Chelsea Arts Club.
Louise Innes is a versatile operatic mezzo soprano, who has sung at Covent Garden Opera House, Scottish Opera, La Scala, Festival Hall, and 10 Downing Street to name but a few.
