Full Biography


Charles Haslett is fantastic as the Spanish Waiter from Fawlty Towers. He has all the mannerisms and charm of the character played by Andrew Sachs in the hit comedy and when he is teamed up with Basil Fawlty lookalike John Parkin they have an excellent polished routine for mix & mingles and meet & greet.

Don’t expect to have a quiet meal if you are dining at an event when Charles is around because he will have you in stitches with his Manuel antics and he is always looking over his shoulder for Basil taking a swing at him for doing something wrong!

Charles as Manuel and John as Basil really do give their crowds something to talk about as the likeness is so close.

“I was extremely satisfied with Alive Network - Alive Network was able to negotiate with both Basil and Manuel who gave us a reduced price for less time which suited my budget. Our guests very much enjoyed their performance, they were tremendous fun and we all enjoyed their antics.”

“We had a great night and the guests enjoyed themselves. I would recommend Charles Haslett to anyone.”

“Alive Network handled the booking in a straightforward and very efficient manner. Charles did a wonderful job. He kept our guests very well entertained and is full of ideas for how to ensure they get the best out of meeting 'Manuel'. An altogether professional and enjoyable performance. ”
