Description

Strap. The heck. In! No more Mr Nice Person! Alun (The Cockerel*) Cochrane intends to drop truth bombs and articulate thoughtcrimes about vegetables, gender, religion and washing machines. *Frank Skinner’s Absolute Radio and various telly, innit. Alun Cochrane has been doing solo shows at the Fringe since 2004. He's performed droll, anecdotal, observational comedy on TV panel games and stand-up shows and he's part of the award-winning Frank Skinner show on Absolute Radio. During these offence-taking times he has decided he may as well be hanged for a sheep as a lamb. Apols to vegans.

More an observationalist than a comic. Some pretty strong views on a lot of things. Strong presence on the stage. Don’t expect big laughs, although there are continual amusing comments throughout.

Somehow both boring and offensive. Worrying dog-whistle racism. Do not go to this.

Stuff Boris Johnson! Make Alun PM.....he'd get our country sorted.....and make us laugh! A clever comedian

Alun's show this year is as much engaging as it is funny. At times he seems to be trying to provoke the audience by putting forward some dark proposition then comes out with funny or surreal explanations for what he's said. The laugh count may be lower than his usual quota but you certainly feel you've had a good hour's worth of entertainment. And learned a few things about yourself and Alun's life as a curmudgeon.
