Bound and Gagged Comedy


Character comedian Charlotte McDougall (Bearded Ladies, Radio 4) makes her solo debut at the Edinburgh Fringe as Gay Furnish Flirt Coach, sexologist and dating guru. Gay invites you to join her and her squad of guest gurus for a flirting masterclass. Do you have zero charisma? Are you sweaty and awkward but yearn for intimacy? Are you an introvert, an extrovert or a pervert? Don't criticise yourself, spend time with yourself, play with yourself. Gay can change your life. No, seriously. She can.

Charlotte’s TV credits include appearing in Misfits (E4), Downtown Abbey (ITV1), The Paradise (BBC One), Holby City (BBC One) and The Inbetweeners (Channel 4). She has written for the likes of Smack the Pony (Channel 4), Make My Day (Channel 4) and has recently been developing a sitcom, Now or Never, with Paul Schlesinger (Twenty Twelve, W1A).

Charlotte has previously enjoyed 3 sell out runs at the Edinburgh Fringe, two with her double act McDougall & Donkin (2000 and 2001) and one with The Bearded Ladies (2004). As part of the The Bearded Ladies (between 2004 and 2007) she also wrote and starred in four series’ of The Bearded Ladies on Radio 4, a Channel 4 Comedy Lab, Speeding, produced by Ash Atalla (The Office) and a BBC Two pilot, The Bearded Ladies, directed by Dominic Brigstocke (Green Wing, Horrible Histories, Newzoids).
