Alun wrote and starred in the Radio 4 series Alun Cochrane’s Fun House, offering listeners a room-by-room stand up tour of his home. For many years he was the co-host of The Frank Skinner Show on Absolute, for which he received a 2012 Arqiva Award nomination for Best Newcomer. The show also won a Sony Award in 2011 for Best Entertainment Programme and was nominated again in 2012.
In 2014 Alun returned to Edinburgh with Alun Cochrane: Me Neither. Previously Alun was nominated for Best Newcomer at the Perrier Awards and has won Chortle Awards for Best Breakthrough Act and Best Compere as well as additional accolades with the Writer’s Guild Award For Comedy. In 2012 he toured his show Alun Cochrane: Moments Of Alun across the UK following its success at the 2011 Edinburgh Fringe. He toured the UK again in 2016 with his show Alun Cochrane: A Show With A Man In It.
Much of Alun's comedy begins simply as something he's seen, heard or felt in his own life - in the street, the kitchen, or anywhere else - and from that it blossoms into a highly amusing anecdote or a strange flight of fancy, whether picking on computer jargon or recounting his own cringe-worthy confessions. It is stand-up at its least formulaic and most amusing.
Alun's corporate clients appreciate his ability to tailor his act to fit specific entertainment needs while still retaining a highly individualistic style.
