Kinky Boot institute is the name given to my theatre company. I am comedian, playwright,

actor, illustrator, bin-man, director and podcaster, Lewis Charlesworth. 


After 10 long years as a stand up comedian, I set up this theatrical group as a platform for
new writing and feature length pieces. Initially branching out as a sketch comedy writer I

have moved onto playwrighting.  Most of my work can  be seen in various
fringe festivals and local theatres.


Providing opportunities for local acting talent, my shows aim to reflect the values and 

dynamics I see from my experiences growing up in the North West. But above all, my plays aim
to entertain in a very modern, energetic and thought provoking way. 


Anyway, enough of that pretentiousness. Check out my videos and see how silly I am,
and make sure you book tickets for my next show....
