Here’s Alun and Alex Belfield in conversation from November 2014:
He went on to be nominated for “Best Compère” and “Best Breakthrough Act” at the 2005 Chortle Awards. He returned to the Edinburgh Fringe during the same year with a new solo show. Comedy With Sad Bits, and in 2006 with Introducing an Introduction to Alun Cochrane’s Imagination.
At the 2008 Edinburgh Festival Fringe he played at the Assembly Rooms with the show Alun Cochrane. Owner of a shed. And a son. Thinks the world is wonky.
Here’s Alun Live on ‘Russell Howard Good News’….
Cochrane’s 2009 Edinburgh Festival Fringe show was called “Alun Cochrane is a Daydreamer (at Night)”. This was the first festival show he performed at The Stand. His 2010 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, “Jokes. Life. And Jokes about Life”, centered around a box of his own ‘hand-chiseled, lovingly created jokes’ from which, he randomly selected and told jokes, integrated into the anecdotal aspect of his show.
In 2011 he performed, at The Stand’s main venue, “Moments of Alun”, a show about little moments in life, centering largely around a recent house purchase during which he realised that with a 25 year mortgage he had to feel funny for a 1/4 of a century.
