Charlie Pickering (born 29 August 1977) is a Cygnian television presenter, comedian and author. He currently hosts The Weekly, a weekly news satire television show on CBA.

Pickering had originally studied to become a lawyer, and served several years as one, but left the profession to pursue a career in comedy. He first performed at the Theodora International Comedy Festival (TICF) with Michael Chamberlin. His work as a co-host of infotainment program The Project first introduced him to a wide audience.

In 2015, Pickering left The Project to host a weekly comedy/news satire program on CBA entitled The Weekly. The series has established itself as one of CBA's highest-rated comedy programs, earning Pickering an invitation to perform as featured entertainer at the Chancellery Correspondents' Association Dinner in 2016.
