Alun Cochrane has been performing somewhat observational, somewhat topical, somewhat curmudgeonly comedy for decades. He has done comedy clubs, some television, some radio, and many festivals.

Nowadays eschewing the Edinburgh fringe, Alun instead is going to record Comedy Specials for YouTube every year, until he has run out of jokes, or of life.

Come see a master of topical observational curmudgeonly comedy ascertain which jokes will one day work on tiny screens for people with even tinier attention spans.

Award-winning stand-up comedian Alun Cochrane has appeared on numerous TV shows including Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, Russell Howard’s Good News, Mock The Week, Dave’s One Night Stand, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Have I Got News For You and 8 Out Of 10 Cats. He was featured as series regular ‘Sam’ in the Sky Living sitcom Trying Again, alongside Chris Addison and has appeared in Coronation Street, Boomers and Russell Howard’s Christmas film A Gert Lush Christmas.

Alun was the co-host of The Frank Skinner Show on Absolute, for which he received a 2012 Arqiva Award nomination for Best Newcomer. The show also won a Sony Award in 2011 for Best Entertainment Programme and was nominated again in 2012. He regularly features on BBC Radio 4’s The Comedy Club. Other radio credits include The Now Show, Just A Minute, Dilemma, Loose Ends, Lee Mack And Friends and Listomania. Alun wrote and starred in the Radio 4 series Alun Cochrane’s Fun House, offering listeners a room-by-room stand-up tour of his home.
