Alun is co-host of The Frank Skinner Show on Absolute Radio, for which he has received a 2012 Arqiva Award nomination for Best Newcomer.
Other radio credits include The Now Show, Just A Minute, Dilemma, Loose Ends, and Lee Mack And Friends. Alun is an Edinburgh Fringe regular, earning himself four and five-star reviews to go alongside his Writer’s Guild Award For Comedy. In 2011 he took his show Alun Cochrane: Moments Of Alun to the festival to great acclaim. The tour was extended throughout the UK into 2012.
Alun is a master at observational comedy, telling tales about eating, sleeping, daydreaming, driving, being a son, father, brother, husband, friend, mortgage-holder, clothes-wearer, car-owner, radio listener, train-traveller, door-opener (and closer), alcohol-consumer, hangover-sufferer, newspaper flicker-through-er, occasional football watcher, and general liver of life. In short; he gets material from anywhere he wanders in mind or body.
Alun also has several television appearances to his name, most recently Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, and he’s often seen on 8 Out of 10 Cats, Mock The Week, and has appeared on Soccer A.M and Live At The Comedy Store.
