Now BBC 6 Music’s prime time DJ, Craig Charles first became a national icon in the field of television with iconic roles in Red Dwarf and Coronation Street, having got into show biz as a spoken word performance poet and stand-up comedian with the Red Wedge comedy during the 80s.
It didn’t take long for the cheeky Liverpudlian to become a fan favourite, play lager loving Dave in the beloved Red Dwarf sitcom. He soon supplemented his growing reputation, playing taxi driver Lloyd in Coronation Street for 10 years and presenting various shows, from the cult hit Robot Wars, to The Gadget Show.
For years now, his Funk and Soul show on BBC 6 Music has proved one of the station’s most popular shows, becoming a fully-fledged club night that regularly appears at venues up and down the country and earning Charles a prime-time spot on the radio station.
At this year’s Christmas Funk & Soul Party at O2 Academy Bristol, Charles will be joined by an array of exciting talent including Bristol vocalist Eva Lazarus with a full backing band and the hip-pop focused DJ Format in room one whilst SWU FM regulars Ben Daley and D.A.D taking over room two.
