Alun Cochrane is heading to The Civic this weekend for his new show "Stuff and Nonsense"

As seen on various TV comedy shows over the years, including Mock The Week, Have I Got News For You, Never Mind the Buzzcocks and 8 Out of 10 Cats – he found these hard as he didn’t like interrupting people. He’s also been heard on Frank Skinner’s Absolute Radio show and is known as the grumpily funny Centrist Dad guy they use pretty frequently on Radio 4.

Hailing from West Yorkshire, and described by comedy website Chortle as "a comic who still crafts some of the most listenable-to lines in the business...", Alun is touring a show of both stand-up material (Stuff) and of his high quality on the spot frippery, impro, crowd work (Nonsense). 

He says that "stuff in the “Stuff” half may include some stuff about *actual* stuff." He has a jumper he might discuss, and he thinks his new car jokes could make the final edit - those are new jokes about his rather old car, which is pretty new to him, clear?

There could be stuff on funerals, free speech, or feminism, and maybe a bit or two on the muddled mess of modern masculinity. Perfect for a Saturday night...!

The Scotsman said his new show "is wonderful, powerful, unexpectable stuff from a comic who still crafts some of the most listenable-to lines in the business.” 

Alun takes on the Civic this Saturday (1st of October) with tickets priced at £16.50. You can grab your seats here:
