Laugh with Alun


AWARD-WINNING stand-up Alun Cochrane is a master at observatio­nal comedy and an expert in storytelli­ng –and you have a chance to hear him when he comes to Norden Farm later this month.

He received an Arqiva Award nomination for Best Newcomer in 2012 for Absolute Radio’s The Frank Skinner Show. The show also won a Sony Award in 2011 for Best Entertainm­ent Programme and was nominated again in 2012.

Other awards include Chortle Awards for Best Breakthrou­gh Act and Best Compere. He has received accolades with the Writer’s Guild Award For Comedy. Alun was also nominated for Best Newcomer at the Perrier Awards.

The comedian has appeared on numerous television shows. These include BBC2’s Russell Howard’s Good News, BBC2’s Mock The Week, Dave’s One Night Stand, BBC2’s Never Mind The Buzzcocks, BBC1’s Have I Got News For You, and E4’s 8 Out Of 10 Cats.

Alun has toured two of his shows across the UK following success at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. He now takes to the road with his new show Alunish Cochranish – an evening of jokes, ideas and (possibly) movement deployed for your amusement.

He will appear at the Maidenhead arts venue on Saturday, April 21 from 8pm.
