More stand-up from some new and not-so-new faces on the comedy club circuit.

Headliner Alun Cochrane is an award-winning stand up comedian and has appeared on numerous TV shows including Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, Russell Howard’s Good News, Mock The Week, Dave’s One Night Stand, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Have I Got News For You and 8 Out Of 10 Cats. He was featured as series regular ‘Sam’ in the Sky Living sitcom Trying Again, alongside Chris Addison and has appeared in Coronation Street, Boomers and Russell Howard’s Christmas film A Gert Lush Christmas.

Alun 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. He regularly features on BBC Radio 4’s The Comedy Club. Other radio credits include The Now Show, Just A Minute, Dilemma, Loose Ends, Lee Mack And Friends and Listomania. 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.

Pete Teckman arrived on the stand-up scene somewhat later in life than many of his peers but since his debut in 2009 he has progressed rapidly into a popular comedian who can be relied upon to produce laughs from any audience. With a mix of self- deprecating and observational humour drawn from his life experiences, his comic stories are punctuated with a liberal helping of well written jokes and the occasional flight of surreal fancy.

Our opener and compere Ben Lawes has been influenced in his comedy writing by such greats as Morecambe & Wise and Tommy Cooper to his present-day favourites Lee Mack and Mickey Flanagan.

Based in Bolton, he regularly comperes or does sets, all with confidence, empathy, and a sarcastic twist.
