Alun Cochrane

Fee Band

Alun is a seasoned panellist with credits from Mock the Week and 8 Out of 10 Cats to Just a Minute. He’s also co-host of The Frank Skinner Show on Absolute Radio. A master storyteller (described by one critic as ‘attractively dour’), Alan has won a Sony award, toured from New York to Hong Kong via Belgium, and starred in the Sky sitcom Trying Again.




Onstage or as co-host of Absolute Radio’s Frank Skinner Show, Alun mixes meandering storytelling with sharp one-liners and off-the-cuff wit. He’s versatile and quick thinking, combining irresistibly silly routines with honest, straightforward gags.

Described by one critic as ‘attractively dour,’ Alun is always topical and sometimes just a little rude. Whether moaning about thrill seekers, poking fun at wokery or making cringe-worthy confessions, it feels like stand-up at its least formulaic and most amusing.

Alun has performed across the world from New York to Hong Kong, via Belgium. He’s won a prestigious Sony Award, starred in Sky’s sitcom Trying Again, and frequently pops up on Mock the Week, 8 Out Of 10 Cats and Just a Minute. He has also appeared in Coronation Street.

Looking Ahead to International Women’s Day

Samira Ahmed, Eniola Aluko, and Alex Mahon

We were joined by four fantastic speakers to look ahead at International Women’s Day. With the theme of this year’s event being #InspireInclusion, we were lucky enough to hear from four women who have each blazed a trail in their respective fields: CEO of Channel 4, Alex Mahon; the former Australian Prime Minister and Chair of Kings’ Global Institute of Women’s Leadership, Julia Gillard; one of the leading voices in football, Eniola Aluko MBE; and broadcaster and journalist, Samira Ahmed.
