Homecoming gig for Mansfield comedian

Charlotte Cropper Saturday 2 March 2024

Join us at Mansfield Museum on Saturday 2 March for a stand-up comedy gig about reinventing yourself – and hamsters!

Charlotte's Good Girl Gone Rad show is part of our Women’s Season to celebrate International Women’s Day and coincide with the launch of our Art Power exhibition.

Charlotte Cropper was a buck-toothed good girl who didn’t know the meaning of “no” – a bully’s dream. When her braces came off, she left her small-town roots for the glittering heights of Salford and reinvented herself into a Good Girl Gone Bad. That plan did not end well.

Fast forward post-pandemic and the rest, as they say, is history, with Charlotte having forged a successful career ‘up North’ that includes acting, producing and presenting, as well as her increasingly popular comedy routines.

Recently described as "bouncy and friendly... makes you feel like her bestie when you’re in the audience with her" by Blizzard Comedy, Charlotte Cropper brings her Good Girl Gone Rad stand-up show to her Nottinghamshire roots next month, telling us:

“I was born and raised in Mansfield, but in 2018 swapped sexy fox Robin Hood for less-sexy bees and moved to Manchester. It was in the back alleys of the Northern Quarter that I discovered the vibrant world of stand-up and became a total nerd for all things comedy.”

She continues:

“If you had to grow up a bit too fast, felt pressure to be well-behaved or still start to cry when someone tells you off even though you’re not three years old anymore then this is the show for you!”

Charlotte is a prolific alum of the University of Salford. Recipient of The Dean’s Award at the Create Awards 2021, Charlotte performed as part of the SalFUNNI 2019 Edinburgh Fringe project and returned last August as the Producer of the 2022 cohort.

Kevin Tennant, Creative Producer for Cultural Services at Mansfield District Council says:

“Celebrating success is an integral part of what we do here at Mansfield Museum and Mansfield Palace Theatre, so to welcome back homegrown talent to perform on our stage is always a pleasure. We are so grateful that Charlotte has agreed to be part of our Women’s Season scheduling and will be announcing other exciting projects as part of this soon, for everyone in our communities to visit or get involved with.”

So, if you’re free on Saturday 2 March and are aged 16 or over, then we would love to welcome you to Mansfield Museum to experience Charlotte’s warm and mischievous stand-up delivery first-hand. She promises to indulge us with her cautionary tales of wit, whimsy, and why embodying the terrible twos is the most rad thing you can do.
