What is Charles?

In Our Words

Charles is sketch comedy duo Chuck Armstrong and Charlie Stockman.

A cerebral and imaginative sketch duo from Seattle, Charles is intelligent without sacrificing accessibility, seamlessly combining highbrow and lowbrow sensibilities into a brand of humor they call unibrow.

Charles has performed throughout the US and Canada, including the San Francisco, Seattle, Chicago, and Toronto Sketchfests; the Los Angeles Comedy Festival; the People’s Improv Theater New York; the Toronto, Victoria, Winnipeg and Edmonton Fringe Festivals; the UCB Los Angeles; the Groundlings Main Stage Los Angeles; and the Comedy Central Stage Hollywood.

Outside the group, Chuck has worked as a contributing writer for The Onion, and Charlie served as editor-in-chief of Stanford University’s humor magazine The Chaparral.
