Charlie Mizon is one of those dark comedians whose audiences are full of nervous laughter, too scared to laugh, uncomfortable, close to the bone. His subject matters are depression, failure and suicide, ideal subject matter for comedy. Ideal subject for portrait photography.
Charlie has a one man stand up show inhabited by many characters, we photographed each of them. No costume changes, just a few props.
There is the Chef Preston Blumenthal, the priest is Pastor Ted Bear and the magician is the Great Faustini, though my favourite is the nurse Sister Claire Crippin.
