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.

The Tower of London asked GilRei Video to create a timelapse video of this intense set-up period.
