For many years Job’s a good Un! was the catch phrase of Television Comedian Charlie Hale, his catch phrase now is God’s a good un!
Charlie is a comedy impressionist who is always in popular demand to appear at the top cabaret venues throughout the U.K. Although over the last five years most of his work has been on the sporting and after dinner speakers circuit.
Charlie has been a professional entertainer for many years and during that time, he has appeared on approximately thirty major Television shows and has broadcast on as many radio programmes.
As a child comedy was the last thing on Charlie’s mind, as all he ever did was kick a football around the streets of his hometown Warrington, while dreaming of playing professional football for a big league club.
His dreams materialised just after leaving school, as by the age of sixteen he was on the books of Manchester City.
Charlie’s career was, unfortunately, short-lived, due to an early knee injury and Charlie’s long-term problem with asthma.
His playing days were over at the age of twenty, and any hopes of making the big time as a footballer were well and truly finished. This devastated Charlie leaving him feeling rejected and depressed something that stayed with him for many years
On the outside, Charlie has a vibrant personality and he will admit that he once loved the limelight and being at the centre of people’s attention. This his beliefs led him to become a natural comedian.
Charlie made a commitment and accepted Jesus as his personal saviour in 1991 however the reality of God and the step that he had taken was not quite clear to him.
Charlie still held a lot of resentment and found it very hard to forgive people who he felt had hurt him over the years, and believing he could do a deal with god he continued to hurt both close friends and non-friends alike.
Part of Charlie’s act was swearing prior to delivering a punch line in a joke (99% of modern comedy is based on this) Many times he had tried to clean up his act but eventually gave in as he felt quite isolated without the swearing as he was not getting the deserved laughs.
At the turn of the century, there was also a turn in Charlie’s life, as one day he came under tremendous conviction to come clean with God to repent fully and instead of trying to compromise he started going God’s way instead of his own way, he became God seeking instead of pleasure seeking. God-centred instead of self-centered.
In Charlie’s own words he could never go back to the old life and what is more God is using him in a unique way. Audiences now congratulate him on his clean performance and he is able to witness to them saying that it is the love, the joy, and the peace of having Jesus in his life that all things are possible.
God is using Charlie’s unique ministry, by sharing his testimony at Full Gospel Businessmen’s Fellowship Dinners, as well as speaking at Outreach concerts in various Church and secular venues.He recently spoke of his faith 0n BBC Radio GMR Manchester.
Charlie is also a regular visitor to prisons around the country spreading the word and love of Jesus.(“Charlie says’s I’m used to a captive audience”)
