Dearly Beloved, we are gathered here today to celebrate the life and work (plagiarized for the most part) of Charlie Bicknell, 197080-last week – cabaret artist, actress and circus eccentric.

She is survived by Louise Innes, ‘internationally acclaimed’ Opera singer and suspiciously alive cabaret partner. Accompanied by a grieving David Harrod (but then he’s always miserable) on the piano and a gratuitous trumpet player as Charlie can no longer blow her own.  Reverend Jonathan Booth will deliver his eulogy, inspired by The Seven Ages of Man.  Illustrated robustly with the help of Tim Minchin, Jacques Brel, Billy Eilish and Mozart, among others.
