Alun Cochrane

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.

He has recently joined Frank Skinner’s Absolute Radio Show and can be heard every Saturday morning from 8am.

Alun has several television appearances to his name, most recently Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow he’s also often seen on Eight out of ten cats, Mock The Week,  and has appeared on Soccer A.M and Live At The Comedy Store.

Radio producers are also aware of Cochrane’s talent and he’s notched up various credits from Just A Minute, 4 Stands Up, and The Now Show to Clive Anderson’s Chat Room.

At the Edinburgh festival he’s performed 6 original solo stand-up shows in the last 7 years to critical and audience acclaim.

Alun has a number of corporate entertainment clients who appreciate the ability to tailor his act to a specific group whilst still being extremely amusing and original- he owns several suits (at least 4) and now he has a child is particularly happy to wear one of them for work of this nature. Perhaps less pleasing to him is discovering he is good at work in this sector just as an enormous economic downturn strikes. Hmm.

Danny McLoughlin

Somewhat a local hero, with an amiable confident stage presence and a well written set Danny delivers material with more than just an immediate pay-off line, preferring to take the joke one or two steps further. Confident enough to take a risk on stage he does so not to the detriment of the audience, keeping them laughing along or hanging on every word. A bright future surely awaits.

In 2013 he returned to the Edinburgh Festival with his second show ‘Gary Delaney 2: This Time It Isn’t Personal. His first national tour began in 2013, and is continuing into 2105 as new dates are constantly being added due to high demand.
