Charlie Baker plays The Woodville on Thursday from 8pm.


An unlikely combination of jazz and comedy comes together on Thursday at The Woodville, in Gravesend.

After a sell-out run at the Edinburgh Festival this summer, Charlie Baker hits the road again with ‘Baker’s Dozen’ - in which he takes the biggest selling songs of the last 13 years and puts a brand new twist on each.

The singing funnyman is a recognisable face after appearances on Channel 4’s The IT Crowd, plus BBC’s Nevermind The Buzzcocks and Doctor Who in recent years.

In 2011, Baker and actor James Thornton claimed the top prize for their comedy routine on Let’s Dance For Comic Relief.

He will be joined in Gravesend by two-time Fosters Comedy Award nominee James Acaster - who has previously appeared on BBC Three’s Russell Howard’s Good News.

Tickets for the show, which starts at 8pm cost £13 - or £18.50 with a curry. To book your ticket, visit
