Alun Cochrane is a no-nonsense comedian who specialises in funny nonsense. Much of his comedy begins simply as something he’s seen, heard or felt in his own life, or in the street, or the kitchen, or anywhere and from that it blossoms into a highly amusing anecdote or a strange flight of fancy.
At a towering height of almost 6ft 4, Alun is a comedy giant in the making, “The future of British Comedy”. As a headline act or compere, he uses his flair for language to blend friendly story-telling, sharp one liners and off the cuff wit. Alun has a cheeky smile to sweeten even the most revolting tales. He seamlessly mixes improvisation with sharply honed material and will occasionally throw in a brilliantly accurate impersonation.
Versatile and quick thinking he combines irresistibly silly routines with honest, straight-forward comedy all delivered with his trade mark brusque charm. Alun has built a reputation for reliably strong performances on the nationwide comedy circuit. He plays all the major comedy clubs including The Comedy Store. In the past 2 years Alun has performed stand up in New York, Singapore, Hong Kong, the Canary Islands, Iceland and the Edinburgh Festival.
