Stand-up comedian and lifelong thespian Charity Werk reflects on how a very straight high school can lead a group of young boys to explore their sexuality and gender expression – all through the magic of musical theatre.
Charity Werk is a part-time comedian and a full time natural beauty. Making her debut as a RAW Comedy State Finalist in 2018, Charity has quickly established herself as a star on the rise. Her debut solo show “Community Service” was given an extended season and a nomination for ‘Best Comedy’ at the Melbourne Fringe. She was recently hand-picked by the Melbourne International Comedy Festival to star in their month-long showcase ‘The Comedy Zone’. After performing in the Brisbane and Sydney Comedy Festivals, Charity is glad to be home in Melbourne – earning an honest living, and spending it on takeaway.
