3rd July 2011 – EDINBURGH PREVIEW: Alun Cochrane & Jim Smallman


Sadly, Rufus Hound has had to cancel this preview date due to filming commitments for a major movie (seriously, its a biggie).

We think Alun Cochrane is worth the ticket price alone but if you have bought tickets to see Rufus and would prefer a refund please contact ticket web or the box office at the City Screen.

Alun Cochrane is a no-nonsense comedian who specialises in funny nonsense. Much of his comedy begins simply as something he’s seen, heard or felt in his own life, or in the street, or the kitchen, or anywhere and from that it blossoms into a highly amusing anecdote or a strange flight of fancy.

He has several television appearances to his name, most recently Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow he’s also often seen on Eight out of ten cats, Mock The Week,  and has appeared on Soccer A.M and Live At The Comedy Store.

Radio producers are also aware of Cochrane’s talent and he’s notched up various credits from Just A Minute, 4 Stands Up, and The Now Show to Clive Anderson’s Chat Room.

At the Edinburgh festival he’s performed 4 original solo stand-up shows in the last 5 years to critical and audience acclaim.


Award-winning stand-up Jim Smallman is, by his own definition, a heavily-tattooed idiot. People judge him on his ink, but is he really the thug they presume he is, or simply misunderstood?
