Carl explores other avenues of performance which coincide with his politics and activism. He co founded and hosts SMALL PLEASURES, a queer cabaret fundraiser which has been doing turns in London, Brighton and Shanghai to drunken and delighted audiences.
During lockdown, he birthed CAMP FIT! which is a body positive 'gayrobics' and conditioning class which was broadcasted live on Facebook and Instagram throughout the pandemic, being voted No.1 lockdown workout by The Independent.
