Out of stock
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.
As a headline act or compere, Alun uses his flair for language to blend friendly story-telling, sharp one liners and off the cuff wit. He has a cheeky smile to sweeten even the most revolting tales, seamlessly mixing improvisation with sharply honed material and occasionally throwing in a brilliantly accurate impersonation.
Building on his reputation for reliably strong performances, Alun has notched up a number of TV credits including Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, Have I Got News for You, Never Mind the Buzzcocks, 8 Out of 10 Cats, Mock the Week, Live at The Comedy Store and Dave’s One Night Stand. He has also had acting roles in Not Going Out and We Are Klang.
In 2011, Alun became a full-time presenter on Frank Skinner’s Absolute Radio show and has also featured on Just a Minute, The Now Show, 4 Stands Up and Clive Anderson’s Chat Room.
Rarely have such random musings been elevated to this level of hilarious artistry
Bio coming soon
Nigel Ng grew up in Malaysia, lived in America for five years and moved to the UK in 2015. Having started his comedy career in Chicago, he’s relieved that (most) people in the UK get his jokes too, as evidenced by him winning the prestigious Amused Moose Laugh Off 2016 and being runner up in the Laughing Horse New Act of the Year 2015.
Nigel was also a finalist in the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year 2016 and Leicester Square New Comedian of the Year 2015 competitions. He was selected to perform in The Pleasance Comedy Reserve at Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2017 and now can be seen performing in comedy clubs across the UK.
Natural funnybones … as slick as they come
Multi-award winning comedian Tom Taylor has received high praise from audiences and critics alike. His unique brand of musical comedy is smart and silly in equal measure and he can boast an impressive stock of quirky, and very funny, musical one-liners.
In 2013 Tom reached the final of the prestigious So You Think You’re Funny? competition, previously won by Dylan Moran, Lee Mack and Peter Kay. In 2014, he reached the final of the Hobgoblin Comedy Award and, the following year, won the inaugural Great Yorkshire Fringe New Comedian of the Year competition.
Recently, Tom has performed on Radio 2 and Radio 4 Extra as part of the BBC Radio New Comedy Award and has supported John Kearns, Simon Munnery and Abandoman on tour.
His brand of nervous, neurotic musical comedy – coupling deliberately simplistic tunes on an old Casio keyboard with cleverly constructed lyrics and smart wordplay – is an absolute delight.”
