This November our Soho Rising festival hosts a bunch of the brightest new Soho Theatre Labs voices, over a fortnight.
Soho are delighted to be bringing together four of the brightest, up and coming performers from the Soho Theatre Labs to have performed in Edinburgh this year.
Charlie George is an award winning comedian and writer. LGBTQ New Comedian of the Year 2019. So You Think You’re Funny & Funny Women Awards Runner up 2019 & Leicester Square New Comedian Award & Pride’s Got Talent finalist 2018.
Charlie’s a former circus performer and dancer, who came to comedy to find her voice. Turns out her voice is a lot like an 18th century white man’s trapped inside the body of a queer brown lady.
‘Charlie George has an elegantly calm and collected demeanour, her wry observations, situation and background are interesting. A personable & witty comic with a playful, naughty streak and an ear for a strong gag.’
Steve Bennett, Chortle
‘Hilarious & no messin’

Will Hall is a stand-up comedian from a small town (two Co-ops – both the funeral ones) with a big dream (to leave the town). As seen on BBC Three and Channel 4, he’s been described as ‘electrically witty’ (Broadway Baby) and on the way to becoming a “hugely popular comedian” (List). Come see if the critics are right or if he really DID pay those reviewers.
‘A natural persona on stage.’
‘Will Hall was my discovery of the Fringe. A very funny man with a serious stand-up future.’
Will Gompertz, BBC Arts Correspondent
Sharlin Jahan is a Canadian, Bengali, British, Muslim, female type person living in London.
‘Hilariously funny. Her comedy is quirky and unique.’
‘Undeniably impressive. Jahan’s comedy covers classic themes, but her unique perspective and confident delivery kept the jokes fresh, and far from the clichés.’
★★★★★ Ed Fringe Review
Dimple Pau‘s biggest fear? Looking down from heaven (post murder) to watch her religiously vegan parents learn that the contents of her last meal involved a chicken and an egg. Eye rolling and frustratingly stereotypical tales of living at home and being the A word.
