Seasoned Actor & Comedian Charles Andrew Payne {}
Winner of the funniest person with a Day Job contest , Actor, Comedian, Writer and Motivational Speaker Charles Andrew Payne spent his formative years growing up in Grenada being raised by his grandparents along with a host of aunts, uncles and cousins. “When you’re the youngest of fourteen people living in a three room shack, in a third world country you learn quickly to speak up or be ignored” he says. That ability served him well when he traveled as an unaccompanied minor to Vancouver, Canada at the age of eight. Being the only black kid in his school, with a strange accent and no knowledge of first world culture he learned to use his wits to make friends and fit in.

Years later those same friends thinking that he should tell his stories on stage signed him up for an open mic night without telling him and forced him onto the stage when his name was called. The experience was so enjoyable that he has been doing comedy ever since playing club dates all across Canada and the U.S.

As an Actor, he has appeared in over 140 film, television, commercial and theatre productions most recently as Jock on the SyFy Series Wynonna Earp. Charles was a contributing writer for the CBC children’s show Spilt Milk and his writings has been featured in various publications and produced on the theatrical stage.

He believes that many people forget hat the power of the mind is the most underestimated tool we have at our disposal. That is the underlying theme of his many motivational speeches where he combines his comedy and life story with an inspirational message. Charles believes that in order to move forward in life one must first tell themselves the truth about themselves and uses his comedy to illustrate his own truths about his life and experiences.
