A Nottinghamshire stand-up comedian will make her first ever appearance at Nottingham Comedy Festival next month (November 2023).

Charlotte Cropper, from Mansfield, will perform her first show ‘Good Girl Gone Rad’ at Bunkers Hill in Nottingham on November 9.

“I also talk a lot about loving being from Nottingham!”

Despite being native to Nottinghamshire, Charlotte’s comedy career took off whilst at the University of Salford where she joined a comedy society.

The then teenager was shown the ropes which opened the door to five-minute show slots at various gigs in and around the Manchester area.

Now a graduate of Media and Performance, Charlotte is set to make her stand-up debut in her hometown. This is following an initial performance on October 14th in Salford as part of the ‘Women in Comedy’ festival.

“If I can be working full time doing fun comedy stuff, I’ll be a happy gal!”

The Nottingham Comedy Festival will take place between November 3 and November 11 across thirteen venues in the city, including the Playwright and Bunkers Hill.

This year will be the 15th anniversary of the festival. Throughout the years, the festival has included a wide variety of comedy such as stand-up, improvisation and sketch.

Helen Stead is the director and organiser of the festival. She and her friend put this festival together as a way of celebrating the comedy scene in Nottingham.

As well as this festival, the sister company, NCF comedy, runs regular monthly shows.
