Edgy, polished and inventive, Charlie Pickering is one of the most exciting names in Australian comedy. Charlie is a political junkie, former lawyer and was the voice of his generation as a regular team captain for Generation X on Network Ten’s quiz show Talkin’ ‘bout Your Generation. He can also be seen there each weeknight on your screens as co-host of The Project where the day’s news is dissected, digested and re-constituted by some of Australia’s funniest and smartest.
Long before he scored gigs on two of TV’s biggest shows, Charlie was touring internationally, winning awards and playing to sold-out houses. He has performed solo seasons at the Griffin Theatre in Sydney, the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, the Adelaide Fringe Festival, the Brisbane Comedy Festival and New Zealand Comedy Festival, not to mention performing spots at comedy clubs throughout Australia and entertaining the troops over in Afghanistan.

A native of Brooklyn New York and the son of immigrants from the Dominican Republic, Christian discovered at an early age that being funny was a way to get people to like you and “not want to beat you up.” This was enough motivation for him to pursue comedy. Christian’s comedic style has been greatly influenced by such comedians as George Carlin, Conan O’Brien and Chris Rock.
While honing his skills in clubs all over New York City, Christian also performs all around the country as well, and has even had the opportunity to perform in Canada and the UK. Recently, he was a part of a comedy bike tour across Ohio where he rode 400 miles across the state and performed 8 shows along the way. He is not a trained cyclist, so his love for comedy is the only thing that carried him along on this very ill advised endeavor.
Outside of being a stand-up comedian, Christian also does a fair amount of acting, writing and improv. He is currently the head writer for an online talk show called “Late Night New York,” where he performs on the show as well. Christian has also hosted a popular podcast called “Offstage w/ Christian Polanco”, where he interviewed other comedians about how they handled dating and relationships.

Having performed at diverse and unconventional venues around New York City, Tara is always eager to find new and exciting crowds to spin for.

The crowd trusts Tara to become part of another great night in their lives, and she returns that favor by giving them a taste of the familiar as well as something new that may be something they have never realized was needed or missed in their musical memory.
