In association with Avalon Comedy Network

We’ve teamed up with Avalon Promotions, one of the leading names in live comedy, to launch a new regular comedy night, Sit Down, Stand Up, featuring some of the hottest names in stand-up.
We're delighted to announce that the launch night will be headlined by Perrier nominated stand-up comedian Alun Cochrane.
A familiar face on TV, appearing on the likes of BBC One's Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, Dave’s One Night Stand, Have I Got News For You, Never Mind The Buzzcocks and Mock The Week, as well as co-hosting The Frank Skinner Show on Absolute Radio - Alun is no stranger to the big time!
Alun is a master at observational comedy, telling tales about eating, sleeping, daydreaming, driving, being a son, father, brother, husband, friend, mortgage-holder, clothes-wearer, car-owner, radio-listener, train-traveller, door-opener (and closer), alcohol-consumer, hangover-sufferer, newspaper flicker-through-er, occasional football watcher, and general liver of life. In short; he gets material from anywhere he wanders in mind or body.
“By the end of the show, some people in the audience literally can't stop laughing. Expect Alun Cochrane to be filling arenas soon."
"a master storyteller, holding the audience before dropping an exploding but simple punchline..."
Throughout 2013 Avalon's Comedy Network will bring some of the biggest stars of tomorrow to our venue, today. With previous headliners of their established night including the likes of Al Murray, Lee Nelson and Russell Howard, we’re providing you with a unique opportunity to catch the future stars of the comedy scene in an intimate setting.
