Previously known as CatFace Talent, Charlotte Austin launched her agency in early 2014.
With almost 10 years of experience in the comedy industry Charlotte’s expertise lies in raw, live stand-up comedy – her favourite thing in the world. She has a vast knowledge and understanding of the comedy circuit, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, tours, producing shows, booking and running gigs, corporate events and managing diaries. Charlotte has previously represented some of the biggest names in UK comedy including Edinburgh Comedy Award nominees and worked closely with the likes of John Bishop, Jason Manford, Josie Long and Johnny Vegas.
With an impressive roster of talent the Austin team is one of the UK’s most exciting agencies and are experts in taking acts to big capacity venues and nationwide tours. The first show they produced, ‘Take A Comedian Out’ opened to a sell out audience at Edinburgh’s 750 seat Pleasance Grand in August 2014, and they have since produced successful shows and tours including performances at the prestigious 1,200 capacity EICC in Edinburgh, Gilded Balloon’s Debating Hall, the Clapham Grand and the O2 Shepherds Bush Empire.
Austin Talent also book international gigs and festival shows for their comedians as well as sourcing and co-ordinating all of their corporate engagements.
In 2017, (when still known as CatFace), their shows sold thousands of tickets at the Adelaide Fringe Festival, won awards for ‘Best Magic’ and ‘Best Comedy’, sold out Insomnia Gaming Festival, sold out the O2 Forum, collaborated with huge fashion brand New Look, and even had one broadcast on BBC1. They even took home the title of ‘Best Street Team’ at the Flyerer Awards at the Edinburgh Fringe.
This August, the team produced a number of high profile shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival including triumphant returns from The Dark Room, Notflix and Anna Morris as well as the highly anticipated third stand-up instalment from comedy superstar Luisa Omielan. The team also produced their own Edinburgh Fringe Magic Gala this year after the runaway success of a one-off show last year.
Austin Talent consists of a young and dedicated team who work closely with the people they represent and love nothing more than sitting in the audience to watch one of their clients at work.
So what does all this mean?! Austin Talent book gigs, tour shows, corporate events, produce shows and in truth…they’re planning on taking over the
