Charlie Pickering spent ten years travelling the world as an award winning stand-up comedian before settling into the closest thing he had to a day job since he left his legal studies behind. As host of The Project for 5 years, Charlie was at the centre of one of Australian television’s most daring experiments – re-defining the way that hundreds of thousands of Australians see the news.

At the start of 2014, Charlie wrapped up on The Project with some big ideas within the next 12 months he found himself making the critically acclaimed The Weekly with Charlie Pickering with ABC TV. ‘The Weekly’  returned for its third series in 2017 with no signs of slowing down.
