He was born in Kennington, London on the 16th April 1889 and lived their until he was 21. He was born into and spent his early years in great poverty in (at the time) one of the poorest areas of London. As a teenager he joined a performing group in nearby Brixton and during a tour of the U.S was spotted performing by a scout for Sennett Studios, they signed him up and the rest is history! He went on to star in 81 films mainly during the silent era and playing his 'Little Tramp' character in most of them.

We will see how his film career was influenced by his early life and how he was very secretive about his life since it was very painful to him and so will will discover the truth about his parents and his mother's illness.

His life is a classic rags to riches story and in his films he was heavily influenced by his poor upbringing. I will guide you round the streets visiting various places that influenced him, the houses where he lived as a child and describing the conditions of the area in late Victorian London. I will tell you the story of his relationships with his mentally ill mother, alcoholic father and the close bond he had with his half brother Sydney.

Plus I will also talk about his stage understudy who also went onto become a world famous movie comedian.
